Thank you to Jlindros & Rudzud for this one.

App- In the glass this is a very hazy pour. A good amount of orange is there with a bit of a lighted yellow and golden center. Color radiates outwardly and with a good 2-1/2 finger head it leaves bit soapy and filmy cling down the glass.

Smell- Out of the shoot this has the markings of a fabulous smelling beer. Whispy notes come waving out of the neck. A good amount of hoppy bitter with intermixed tropical fruits and soft floral notes. Tangerine, Orange and a bit of a pine note. Not much. A bit of a soft peach note backs it up.

Taste- I am really enjoying this. For a pale ale, it delivers big flavor and saves on some of the booze. The flavors are more of a creamy note with a big fruit flavor. The hops are there but don't have residual flavors of too much bitter or pine. The pale ale flavors shine through more. I think they nailed this and didn't try to make this overly big or hoppy instead a wonderful beer with a mild ABV.

Mouth- Big, luscious and creamy. Not always the way I describe a pale ale, but very billowy and medium bodied. The carbonation is like drinking some cream soda but instead of vanilla you get more fruit and cream flavors that lay down
on the tongue

Drink- I had to wait a long time to get my hands on one of these locals from my RS guys and I am quite glad I did. I think I will have to search out more and get a glass and more of these guys delicious beers. This was a wonderful pale ale, rich of flavor and delicate and smooth in body and carbonation. Well done.
