Pours golden with a white head. There is the presence of hops in the aroma as well as some malts. The hops lend a slightly citrusy aroma. The taste is very grainy and the hops lend pleasant citrus and pine flavors. The bitterness from the hops also balances out the mild sweetness of this beer. It's just right. The body is light to medium and it's clean and dry. The carbonation isn't overpowering. Overall, this is good and very drinkable. It doesn't quite give you the level of flavor that some of the higher quality American pale ales possess, but this is still good. You could probably use this beer as a way to slowly introduce people to pale ales.

Pint glass on tap at the New Orleans Hilton Airport.
Hazy golden colour with a thin white head leaving lacing down the sides.
Piney herbal hops in the nose.
Same thing on the palate. Long lasting after taste.
A little thin and could use some malt backbone. Decent and worth a try
Serving type: on-tap

Pour from bottle into Kuhnhenn IPA glass:
A: Clear pour with healthy cap of foam that quickly fades to a thin layer.
S: Very nice for an APA. Lots of grapefruit and spice.
T: Hops, hops, hops. Pine and grapefruit with a bitter finish.
M: Heavy carbonation with a slight hop syrup finish.
O: The bouquet promises more than the flavor delivers, which is probably the main problem with this Pale Ale, which is quite drinkable. The finish is a little too bitter for the style.
