Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. The nose is a bit of tropical fruits and pine, but a little muted. Taste is a citrus explosion to start, followed by a good amount of honey flavor, then a clean, dry minty bitter finish. Mouthfeel is rich, smooth carbonation. Overall very good, I would certainly get this again.

A - very hazy golden with tall fluffy head that retained very well
S - strong notes of pine with some citrus and florals, mild sweet caramel
T - medium pine and perfume bitter hop flavours, toasted grainy malt with some earthiness of the back end
M - lowish carbonation, strong bitterness with a medium dry finish
O - a somewhat unique hop profile for an APA with the pine and perfume creating an interesting flavour, I would call this an occasional sipper if the mood strikes you, worth a try

Must be the most perfume-like beer I've ever had. Clouds of pixie dust and after-shave lotion. Crisp and sharp with some malt underneath. Fruity with citrus fragrance but not so much of the bitter peel. Such an odd and distinctive taste but hard to put into words. Herbal with a slight sweet touch, flowery and grassy. Looks nice in the glass with decent lacing and the pale golden color.

Worth trying, but it's not in the mainstream of the style, which is a good thing in my opinion. They call it an "extra pale ale," which seems fitting.

3.1/5  rDev -24%

A - Pours a rich gold with a thin head, which rapidly falls to a ring and island. Small bubbles of evenly spread carbonation float to the surface. Reasonable start.

S - Resinous/herbal hops, peach, pineapple, light breadiness, slightly floral.

T - Refined herbal hops initially. Drink becomes watery and tasteless in the middle before light fruitiness appears. Finishes with an bubblegum edge. Aftertaste is lightly hoppy with a bit of caramel.

M - Far too watery. The light carbonation is nice, but the beer need more body.

D - I would struggle to give this anything other than an average score. There is nothing particularly dislikeable about the beer, but by the same token, nothing to get excited about.
