Growler, poured into a tulip

A- pours a clear deep amber color with some reddish hue, small fizzy and creamy white head, eventually reduces completely, leaving a few patches of lace behind

S- fresh citrusy hop aroma up front with an emphasis on grapefruit & orange zest. Fresh grassy & leafy hop notes as well. Caramel malt aroma rounds it out with just a hint of bready notes at the end

T- citrus hoppy notes come through first with lots of orange peel and grapefruit juice, followed by fresh leafy & resinous hop flavors. Slight caramel melt sweetness kicks in mid-palate before finishing slightly bready with more citrusy hop linger

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp and foamy finish

O- one of the best pale ales out there. The citrus hops and caramel malt are so well balanced, that it remains incredibly drinkable, while still being packed with flavor

Neck and neck with Zombie Dust as my favorite pale ale. Wonderful hop aroma and delicious hop bite. Beautiful amber color is very inviting in the glass. Personally find Aloha King equally enjoyable from a bottle or on draft.....yes please. Salute
