For and extra pale ale so generously hopped, I was surprised at first to get very little hop aroma after pouring. Looks great in the glass. Fluffy white head that lasts and eventually leaves behind some nice lacing. Initial flavor is a very spicy, peppery hop bite. Some good notes of pine and citrus punch through the back end. Strong malt backbone for a pale ale. In the end, I wish I had more!

Pours a hazy golden color with a white head that trails the glass. The smell was actually pretty tame with just some light citrus and pine on the nose. The taste was actually very full with hop flavors giving citrus and a bit of pepper on the end. From the flavor I found the beer to be a bit on the heavy side and the aftertaste wasn't as clean as I like but overall a very nice beer.

For the abv and style it doesn't get much better than this. Drinks thicker and sweeter than a 4.9 pale ale and the hop profile satisfies a hop fix. I'll seek this out especially in the summer.

Can. Pours copper and hazy. Darker than what I was expecting an Extra Pale to be. Smells of floral hops, some pine, some citrus and a good lot of caramel malt. The flavor is no-nonsense and close to the nose. Caramel malts, some bread. Citrus and grass hops with a floral element. Straightforward. I was expecting something else. Body is surprisingly full, in context. Medium bitterness. Not bad, not expected.
