This pours a semi-cloudy medium brown color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is mild with scents of hops with hints of grains and citrus. The taste starts off as a bold, rich pale ale and than finishes with an extra amount of crisp bitterness. This is about as perfect of a pale ale as I’ve ever have had the pleasure of drinking.

I poured this brew and received a warm amber colored body with about a 1/2 fingers worth of an off white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was earthy (tell-tale of Warrior hops) mixed with hints of citrus. The flavor punched your palate immediately with a solid blast of bitterness followed by some earthy hop flavors and toasted malt. The body was light to medium and left your mouth dry afterwards.
