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.

22oz bottle poured into pint glass

A- Golden copper with bone white head that sticks to the edges of the glass
S - Pine, Resin, Hops!, floral
T - Im not sure if I'm tasting this right... bottled within the past 2 weeks, but not what I was expecting. Piney hops on the front and back, but lots of malt/corn/earthiness in the middle. Some floral on the end. Either super complex or I have some other strange stuff gonig on.
M- Healthy fullness. Not some super think APA.
O - Not what I was expecting for the taste. The smell is similar to a mix of Pride and Joy with Alpha King, but I get that earthiness in the flavor. Good.
