3.89/5 rDev +7.5%
On tap at Half Pint in Rochester, NY.
Pours a very light clear copper, with a half inch head, and a lots of lacing down the glass.
Smells like pine, grass, some light citrus, and malt.
The taste is similar. Manages to be a pretty earthy/grassy/piney hop blast, while still remaining clean and crisp. Not much noticeable flavor from the malts. Some slight citrus flavors, tastes like grapefruit and a bit of orange.
Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, very crisp mouthfeel, very drinkable.
Not the most knockout pale ale you'll ever have, but still quite tasty.

Darker than expected-auburn color with a fine haze throughout. Head is yellow/brown tinted white, densely foamy/almost nitro looking in texture. Lace is semi sticky in the form of shifting sheety rings and spots. Aroma is doughy caramel-ish malt with a dusting of light floral, slightly fruity/spicy and earthy hop aromas. As it warms more tropical fruity comes through. I find myself digging for hop aromas in the syrupy malt. Taste is caramel malty, grainy, with super fine aggressive carbonation mixing with dry citrus rind bitterness. Not a bad beer....now that I'm getting further into it and more adjusted to its forward bitterness, I'm starting to like it more. I do think some additional late hop additions would benefit the aroma and flavor...however this does say its dry hopped on the label.
