4.14/5 rDev -2.8%
The beer comes in a deep amber color with a large three finger head.
The aroma is extremely hoppy. There's sweet caramel malt along with citrus and floral notes and pine. Very distinct of Cascade hops.
The flavor has lots of bittering of pine and grapefruit on the back. The pine and woody notes stand out more than grapefruit or citrus.
It's a simple and elegant pale ale with loads of hops in the flavor with a good amount of bittering. It's a very well balanced brew with the caramel and biscuit malt. The beer did not blow my socks off, but is quite good.

a. Nice amber color, hints of red. Nic lacing, and a nice small head which dissipates quite quickly.
s. amazing smell of hops.
t. the taste of hops is amazing. When the glass warms a little it even brings out a little more.
m. this is really good.
o. this is a perfect beer. There is really nothing to improve other then to use different styles of hops to give a different pallet. I wish I could get this all the time in ohio, because it would be my go to bee.

A - Hazy dark copper with a dense off white head, nice lacing on the upper portion of the glass.
S - Vibrant citrus hop aroma, caramel malts, hints of pine mixed in.
T - Candy citrus, lemon and bright orange flavors, green hops, a solid background of toasted barley and caramel, bitterness starts in the middle with and pairs with the carbonation for a peppery bite. Citrus peel and oils start coming out toward the end along with apricots and general stone fruit flavors. Finishes bitter with some orange oils left on the tongue.
M - Medium/heavy body, lively/stingy carbonation.
I've been waiting a long time to try this beer and it did not disappoint. Fresh bright aroma, zesty citrus hop flavor with a spicy bitterness on the back end. Malt bill was perfect for the amount of hops used. Well crafted and highly enjoyed.
