Possibly one of the smoothest and tastiest pale ales I have ever had. This was a phenomenal balance between malt and hops, even though it was slightly hoppier than most pale ales.

On tap at blue palms before motorhead.

Pours a darker brown than expected for the style, with little head.

Very nice citrusy aroma.

Taste is a nice citrusy hop flavor, not too overwhelming. Nice malt backbone.

A very tasty drinkable beer.

T: Citrus, grapefruit and tangerine, tropical fruit, mango, pine, herbal notes, a little spice, and caramel malt sweetness.

M: Towards the lighter end of medium body, moderate carbonation, very drinkable.
