Pours a clean, light copper color with white head. The aroma is nice and citrusy, with hints of mandarin orange and lemon zest. The taste is very well balanced - not too bitter, and easy to drink. It finishes citrusy - almost to a sour, tart note. Overall, an average craft beer in a lacking Arkansas market.

A - Pours a nice burnt murky orangish copper color. Little head that disappeared rather quickly with very little lacing left behind.

S - creamy malt grainess little pine scent to it

T - okay at first all I really got was bitterness but after letting it sit for a bit the malt and pine taste came through and the bitterness died down a lot. I'venever had that hhappenbbefore. But after it died down the ale became very easy and balanced in flavor.

M - a medium light creamy feel with a oily bitter finish

O - to me it's a good pale ale very basic but very good and easy drinking. Not session able though but very refreshing.

Enjoy
