2014 can into Lawson's snifter 8/26/2014.

A- Beautiful banana pear yellow body, one finger foamy white head, good retention time. Very nice shade of yellow. [4.25]

S- Citrus, oranges, peaches, nectarines. Slight amount of bread pale malt, a bit of grassy hops, but for the most part it smacks of tropical fruit. [4]

F- Grassy hop flavors, tangy orange pulp, nectarine skin. Overall, the fruit flavours aren't as vibrant on the palate as it is in the nose. [3.75]

M- Thinner bodied but not in a bad way. Easy to drink, not bitter at all, but does feel a bit bland on the finish, presumably from the less malt for the 4.3% ABV. [3.75]

O- Lighter bodied with a lot of fruity hops in the aroma, but a bit light on the flavour, even for a session pale ale. [3.75]

Final score 3.825

Pours a milky yellow, almost like pineapple juice, with a thin white layer of foam. Mild lacing. The aroma is very impressive. It actually smells like fruit juice. It smells exactly like peach juice. Also it smells like pineapple juice (funny, because it looks like it, too). The aroma isn't too intense but it works well, I enjoy its softness (night Shift refers to it being soft). On the tongue, the flavor displays a bit more balance; I pick up some cereal flavors. The peach and pineapple hop flavor, brought on by Mosaic hops, is the leading flavor. This beer is very unique. The hops bring forth such a specific flavor but it is overall a very mild experience. It's extremely drinkable; even quenching. Lively carbonation enhances the body and feel. Mild bitterness. I am very happy with this brew and I wish I bought a whole four pack of cans.

Via can.
