This ale comes off very light for being a pale ale a heavy gold opposed to the darker amber that I am used to seeing in my apa's but the foam stick around and leaves a small trace.
Smell has floral hops definetely , smells like american malt , and brewed with a decent amount of barely grain.
Taste- floral hops take control most of the time ,I come across a bready grainy taste in the middle , but then it ends on a bitter after taste, nice subtle hops , the whole time , a hop head can enjoy this very much and a malt lover can respect it, not too much , not too little.
MF is medium and is kind of laborious to drink , but can be enjoyed very much sip by sip. drink is as well in the middle it leaves a wet finish , but is still enjoyable with a meal not eant to be drank by the 6 pack so take it easy on this one and it'll treat you right
Serving type: bottle

(on tap at Pistola's - served in a shaker pint)
A: fairly cloudy with dry hop residue... sun-baked golden grass color... lazy stand of head, falls flat... looks messy, raw, amateur
S: a bit flat - old dry malt, farmyard grass... dried flowers, dried citrus peel hop aromas peeking through
T: grassy-sepal, green tea-like hop bitterness - unmistakable dry hop source... hop flavors are pretty straight-up wildflower with a tinge of citrus... they weren't lying, the malt is full, bread loafy, and bold - the bitterness cuts through over it, but still some sloppy balance is maintained
M: nearly medium-bodied, added roundness from hop polyphenols, etc... tannic bitterness shocks the tongue a bit... protein-grainy flow
O: kinda like a pale ale done like a rustic, homespun saison - reminds me of Hof Ten Dormaal's Blond that I had recently, just with slightly different yeast character and more biting hop bitterness
Serving type: on-tap
