[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]
The pour was a clear copper brown with an average (1-2 finger) beige fluffy head that had great retention and possessed really good sheets of streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a sweet biscuit malt, spruce and cascade hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of citrus (orange), caramel and a pronounced dark fruit (plum) presence.
The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a note of caramel and a strong fruity presence in the beginning, and then became somewhat hoppy with a nice creamy bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow with a wonderful sweet hoppiness left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a creamy dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a very well balanced Pale Ale, with just the right amount of bitterness to go along with the mild fruity sweetness...
