8 oz. poured on tap into a pokal/pilsner sort of type glass of sorts at the bar.

Another one to one and a half finger creamy egg white whipped head presented, sitting on a body of lemon opaque yellow, with some faint orange tinge edges. Looks almost like apricot in a glass and ring laces tremendously down the sides of the glass while drinking.

Nose seems to have a light floral sense and lots of citrus juicy quality. The hops are aromatic and take over the malt presence it seems by design but it's not like I care at this point since the aroma is so pleasant and inviting. Some hints of sugar cane perhaps in there.

Once again with these beers it's the mouthfeel that always strikes me first. Lush and fully coating and incredibly hop juicy. Good tropical mango, and a faint dry pine bitterness on the swallow. Aftertaste and aroma has incredible large growing pith citrus bite and huge amounts of lemon and orange peel bitterness that explodes. I can nearly chomp into it long after the beer is finished.

Powerful, but it also makes me forget about the base malt which I would like for balance and to remind me that this is a pale ale after all, but it's a hop lovers dream and full of wonderful hop pleasantries that any beer lover who enjoys that sort of thing can get down with.

The beer comes in a hazy golden color.

The beer is wonderfully hoppy of juicy citrus and tropical, bounds of grapefruit. The malt backbone is light with some graininess and the oat gives it some roundness. A significant bitterness on the end of green grass, slight pine, and floral.

At under 5%, this beer is absurdly tasty. One of the best of the "best" small brewery pale ales I've had (Trillium and Peekskill).
