Light brown to amber in color with a bit of haziness. An inch thick rocky white head is present. Aroma of piney hops dominates and light malt is faint. The piney hops are also at the front of the palate. I also get some light grains but they struggle to make their presence known throughout even the fade. This beer is dry and crisp. It just seems more like an IPA.

Nitro tap version into a pint glass.
A love medium-dark amber with a thin head of dense, creamy foam.
The aroma seems a bit muted. I get biscuit up front and a bit of tropical fruit. Mango, orange, maybe a hint of peach.
The taste is very nice, sweet up front with the hops muted a bit. I get bread and maybe a bit of candied fruit. There is a nice hoppy finish with a hint of citrus and grass and some lingering, light bitterness. Went great with a burger.
The mouthfeel is the highlight of this nitro version. Smooth, creamy and mouth-coating. Just awesome.
Overall, really enjoyed this beer. Would love to have it again. may have to pick up a growler.

Pours an almost hazy golden honey with a tight single finger of creamy beige head that rockily settles but maintains fairly well. Good retention; little lacing to speak of.
Fresh, sweet hop aroma. Bready malt backbone with citrus hop smells, fresh cut grass, lemon pepper, some hints at yeasty phenols.
Mild but quite hoppy. Crisp and even-handed with earthy, woodsy hops and a caramel malt presence holding it all together.
Light-medium bodied; crisp and flat with good carbonation and a relatively quick finish.
Pretty decent pale ale.
Pours nice and maintains a decent head. Has a deceptively fruity nose for how earthy and spicy the hops come through in the flavor. The beer is quite drinkable, evenly presented (at least that is the way I would put it).
Would probably have again; worth trying if you're curious.

2.5/5 rDev -34.4%
Appearance: 1" cream colored head recedes quickly with mild lacing. Color is a cloudy amber, no visible carbonation.
Aroma: floral and citrus hops dominate the nose with some malt in the background.
Mouthfeel: light to medium body with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: kind of an odd combination. The floral hops are dominate with some citrus hop bitterness in the finish. The malt flavor is mild and this beer seems to need some more balance between the malt and hops.
