Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Best by date of 5/7/14.
Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a decent amount of lacing clinging to the glass.
Smell: A very floral, earthy, and piney hop forward aroma with big hints of flowers and citrus. Big upfront floral and earthy hop hints. Hints of grassy hops and dank pine resin. Good citrus hop presence with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, and apricot. One of the most floral hoppy scents I've smelled. Backing of pale malt with hints of grains, cracker, and yeast. A very unique and good hoppy aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a very floral and earthy hop forward taste with good notes of flowers and citrus fruit. Big floral and earthy hop taste upfront. Notes of wet grass and dank pine resin. Citrus fruit notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, and pineapple. Hops are nicely bitter and drying. Backing presence of pale malt with notes of cracker, grains, and yeast. A very good earthy and juicy APA taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nicely juicy and oily with a drying finish.
Overall: A really good twist on the American Pale Ale style. Great floral hop taste with some good citrus notes as well.

I had not heard of this brew until I saw it on the tap list at my favorite bar.
Served in a pint glass.
Two fingers of head, after 5 minutes it had settled to a thin layer that left great lacing.
Body was a copperish-amber, almost clear.
Fragrance was hoppy, floral, citrus with a touch of pine.
Taste was predominantly orange, with other citrus and malt.
Body was medium, soft, and not overly strong. Far more bitter than a pale ale.
I would classify this an American IPA, definitely in the category of worth another pint.

Great pale ale! I probably wouldn't have picked it up if it wasn't part of a sample pack. This pale ale drinks more like an IPA. More bitter than any IPA i have ever had. Very floral, with hints of grapefruit and orange. I am slotting this on my #2 IPA shelf.
