Served in a 5oz taster glass at Tighthead 4/29/12. Thanks to the Dood for making the trek with me!

A: Served a pale, straw gold. 1/2 finger of bright white foam forms on top and leaves a fair amount of lace.

S: Bright and hoppy. Citrus and pine. Nice malt balance.

T: See above...exactly.

M: Verges on being quite dry with a welcome bit of malty sweetness. Nice.

O: A very refreshing and enjoyable APA. Would order this again in a heartbeat.

Served in a Rogue shaker pint glass.

Thanks to taiyed for sharing this growler!

I wish brewers would stop using the E/X-PA moniker, just 'cause it comes across as confusing to some. At least give their beers some more sunlight...*rim shot*...*crickets*... It pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises pine needles, light orange zest, grapefruit peel, and mild caramel. The taste brings in more of the same...y'know I like consistency of this nature... The body is a rather light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta wet feel. Overall, a nice little pale, nothing spectacular, but a pleasant session (-ish) beer.
