Chill hazed amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smells hoppy with lots of tropical fruit scent. Pineapple and mango scents. lesser scent of cedar wood.

Starts out mildly sweet and woody with slight savory taste. Tastes of mango and pine. Little bit of woody flavor.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty ale.

Best before May 10th.

A clear gold pour with a 2 finger head of foam.

Big grapefruit and pine, really hoppy nose, but in a way that tells you it's an APA vs an IPA.

Taste authenticates what I said above. A very hoppy Pale, multi talented with the mix of hops flavours going on; I get grapefruit, I get some pine, even a bit of grass if I close my eyes. It's not without its sweetish malty side either. Nice balance, err, relative balance.

Very good mouthfeel.

Great tasting APA and "only" 5.7 % abv. prefer this to the Alaskan IPAs.

Creamy white head and decent lacing. I can smell the floral aroma hops without even putting my nose close to the glass. Not much malt complexity here, but a refreshing floral bittering thats not too overpowering. Has some drinkabilty qualities to it.

12 oz bottle served in pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thick off white head that drops at a moderate rate with significant lacing. Color is cloudy yellow-orange with moderate streaming carbonation.

Aroma: pine and citrus are dominate, with yeasty bread dough in the background.

Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied and quite sticky with a dry, slightly astringent finish.

Flavor: fruity and floral but with some malt sweetness to balance the flavor.

Overall: well done and appropriate to the style.
