3.33/5 rDev -8.5%
A - Pours a clear gold with a one finger head. Quickly dissipates to a light cap and foamy lacing.
S - Sweet malts with a blend of grapefruit and floral notes.
T - Lightly sweet breadiness followed by a heavy citrus. Decent bitterness in the aftertaste.
M - Medium body, medium/high on carbonation.
O - Overall a decent beer, but nothing too spectacular. Nice aroma, but the taste could use a little more depth. Not bad if get the chance to try it, but there are better pale ales to have regularly.

Poured into a mug.
Deep gold in color with a white head. It leaves a nice ring of foam.
It's got a citrus rind smell. Tangerine?
It's pretty bitter. The hops leave a crisp bite on the back of the tongue. There is a malty sweetness as well.
Pretty crisp with a light medium body. Drier than I expected.
Overall, this beer is good. It's easy to drink, but I'm not sure I want to drink a bunh of these.

A hook up from Colby, thanks man. Bottled dated best by 3/28/12 poured to pint glass. The beer pours a translucent pale straw color with a small 1/2 finger white head with virtually no retention and minimal lacing. The nose is rather mild, more of a sweet crystal malt presence than hops, which is odd considering the name of the beer. Hints of earthy hops but mostly malty nose. The flavor is more inviting than the nose lets on, a gentle blend of crystal malt with a light earthy bitter together with a fruity sweetness. Nothing is all that pronounced rather well balanced. A mild bitterness and lingering fruity character remain on the tongue. Light bodied and decently carbonated. Overall, a treat to try. I've been wanting to try this on name and label alone. I know it's won some awards so it was nice to try. Not earth shattering but solid.

A- standard golden for a pale ale
S- light hoppy smell a smell I typically enjoy in a pale
T- sweet upfront with a light hop in the middle
M- smooth upfront with a little carb at the end
A better than average American Pale Ale and I would have another.
