Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed 9/10/14.

Amber color, large white head, lots of lacing. Smells nice - sugar-coated grapefruit. Flavor is pretty balances. Lots of citrus hops, but nicely balanced by the caramel malts. Finish is crisp and bitter-sweet. Body is medium with moderate carbonation.

Very tasty APA. Definitely worthy of its ratings. More juicy than dry.

Pours a hazy, copper color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of resin, pine, strong hops, sweet malt, alcohol, and strong tea/hop essence. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of resin, pine, hops, sweet malt, and alcohol. Overall, great appearance, strong pine/resin/hop aroma and body, and decent blend.

[Ph]attest eggshell, 3 inch head I've ever seen! Hung around unto the last sip. A beautiful, copper-bodied pale ale with refreshing citrus hops and a subtle malt combo. Poured into 12oz glass, slightly translucent, and absolutely ZERO floaties. Most refreshing beer I've had in a long time!
