This beer is a clear medium-dark gold, bright and vibrant-looking with steady carbonation easing its way to the top through the session. The head is clean and white, soft and fluffy but strong. It rests at a just less than a finger that distributes even and conservative patching.
This is a nicely hopped pale ale that maintains a cleanness and balance very well. It's got a bit of pine up front with plenty of grass and fresh green leaf, almost but not quite herbal. It balances with and complements a crackery malt. Underneath is maybe a hint of citrus zest. In the flavor, the finish brings out a woodier/stemmier sort of pith in the finish after it's taken some time to warm.
The light to medium body maintains a firmly crisp bite while staying quite smooth all the way through.

32oz growler poured into a Russian River stemmed glass.

A - Cloudy and dirty in appearance...quite yeasty looking and almost fruit juice like. Grapefruity golden color with a small white head that falls to leave a foamy collar on the edges of the glass.

S - Soft aroma...a bit buttery, light hops, dry malt - grainy and biscuit. Mild bitterness.

T - Light phenolic...grassy bitterness. Mild diacetyl, mid-level bitterness, biscuit. Light citrus - lemons especially.

M - Light to medium in body...lightly tingly carbonation. Biscuity and dry, medium hoppiness.

O - Not bad...rather mild flavors, balanced, soft. Hoppy bitterness and malty smoothness. Two for two with Tired Hands detecting noticeable phenolic qualities - one in a saison and one in this pale ale...both a bit out of character for style, especially here. Had high hopes for this and found myself rather unimpressed with this. Drinkable for sure, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get this one again.

Came to me a cloudy golden straw with a touch of burnished orange. The head was small and white and left minimal lacing.
Very hoppy in the aroma but, sutle. I can smell citrus and lemon lime which must be the moteuka.
Taste is refreshing and good. I can definitly taste lemon verbena but that could be suggestive since I read it off the menu. The malt balances nicely and is quite refined.
The body is thin and the flavor could use a boost other then that I have no problems with this brew.
