Sampled from a 22oz bottle picked up at a bottle shop in Chicago during a recent visit.

Golden and very clear with a big white head. Awesome. And great lacing. Aroma is floral and citrusy with some tropical fruits mixed in. Flavor follows closely with the tropical fruits leading. A nice low bitterness and hints of toasted malt. But this one is all about the hop flavor. A silky smooth finish and a low carbonation make it go down nicely.

An outstanding American pale ale!

Poured into a tulip glass. The liquid is a hazy orange, and the pour kicks up a thick three-finger off-white head that lingers for several minutes and leaves lots of lace on the way down.

Aroma is lemony citrus, candied oranges, kind of sour, with a hint of a grainy malt backbone. Not particularly strong, but it does smell good!

Flavor has all the lemony citrus from the nose, plus some piney resin and a carmelized sweetness contributed by the malts. The finish is almost minty, and black pepper spicy, with a moderate-to-high amount of bitterness. The aftertaste is candied citrus.

Mouthfeel is very creamy, with a high level of carbonation to cut through it. Really well-done.

Overall, a solid and well-done pale ale, but not my favorite by any means. Thanks to batfireman for including it as an extra.

Awesome retention of off-white fluffy head. Brew is slightly chill hazed orange with streaks of brown. Nice Lacing.

Very light citrus/mango nose. Nothing heavy. Floral, bright, crisp, bready...

Great balanced sweet/bitterness. Sweet mango flavors are very dry and smooth. Pineapple brings awesome sugary sweetness. Slightly orange and bready. Carbonation is smooth and delicious, buttery.

This is a great brew, but it needs just a touch more to push it over the edge. Not sure of the price point, but definitely recommended.
