Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This award winning, copper colored pale ale was the first beer we ever brewed and it's still one of our favorites. We carefully blend German and English malts and add generous portions of American hops for a refreshing citrus aroma with a dry finish.

Appearance: A little smoke. Pours a deep copper/orange, extremely hazy. Redolent effervescent, small bubbles. Rocky light-tan head. Outstanding lacing and retention.

Aroma: Clean, American hoppiness. Citrus blast. moderate supportive malts. Candy-sweet aroma, even cold. Some resin, but mostly citrus fruit, very sweet, slightly grainy.

Taste: Clean, dry arrival. Some light bready maltiness across mid-palate. then a touch of alcohol, and very strong bitterness lingers on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light sensation overall. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: Wow; I really liked this better the last time I had it. Still, very clean, refreshing and VERY aromatic and hoppy, but less balanced than I remember it. Really quite like a session IPA. Better as it warms. Better than average, but not a superstar.
