Pours a slightly hazy copper with a dense, frothy eggy head that lingers. When it finally dissipates, it leaves sheets of lacing.

Resin, pine, and fresh cut grass form the initial aroma, with soft notes of pineapple and grapefruit pith underlying a light toasted caramel malt backbone. Mint and floral hops surface late.

Flavor is somewhat subtle initially, becoming resiny and bitter at the finish. The caramel malt backbone carries throughout, with muted tangerine and grapefruit and floral hops emerging at the opening, transitioning to pine and resin late. Bittering hops definitely dominate.

Body is moderate and fairly creamy, with moderate carbonation, light harshness, and a bit of alcohol warmth.

I remember liking this better in years past. Wish the flavoring hops were more prevalent. It's a little too bitter for my liking.

Light amber color, clear with minimal head. Very nice hoppy aroma, some malt in the nose as well. This brew has a very balanced flavor profile but it has a generous amount of hop bitterness and some nice piney notes as it warms. Mouthfeel is spot on, this beer is refreshing but its just thick enough to keep you drinking it. Overall this was a very tasty pale ale that was hard to put down. I finished it pretty quick and I think I will crack another.
