Served on-tap at the brewery a bright orange color with two fingers of bright white head.

Bright aroma of pineapple and tropical fruit.

Tasted of pineapple, grapefruit and light bready malts. Light bitterness to the finish.

Medium bodied and smooth with a moderate carbonation.

A very nice APA from 4 Hands. I've enjoyed many of these boys.

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, citrus hops, floral hops, and slight alcohol. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of earthy malt, and hint of caramel malt. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, blend, and body.

Poured into a pint glass from the tap. Brewed for Pi Pizza.

The beers pours a very nice hazy but rich orange color with a nice 1 inch white head. It has great bright citrus colors all around.

Nice citrus aroma. Notes of orange zest and grapefruit that are nice but not too intense.

Definitely a hop heavy APA that takes care not to destroy the palette. As the nose indicates there is some nice citrus kick to it. Refreshing and bitter with a dryness that cleans the palette and makes me ask for more. There is some nice resinous and slightly sweet pine notes ob the back end as well. Very appealing. It reminds me a bit of their sky rye but with a bit lower octane level. The hop bite is still there though very nice and balanced. Crisp clean and refreshing.

Very good brew. A solid pale ale offering ‘cuz its a bit more approachable but keeps a good edge.

brewed for a local pizzeria. i could see this working very well in that context, but at the taproom next to their other beers, i didnt quite think this stacked up. pours a perfectly clear lighter amber color with an average looking white head. the smell is bready malts and grassy hops, but in a much smaller quantity than in the divided sky or the reprise. flavor is balanced but not that exciting, engligh in style because the hops are just for bittering at the end, nothing more. with a couple slices of pizza this would be nice, easy drinking, flavorful beer. following the prunus saison, it didnt seem all that good. context is everything with this beer. feel is a little light for an american pale, but good carbonation and very sessionable. overall a better than average pale ale.
