Appearance- Clear golden with a good white head.
Smell- hoppy, maybe slightly metallic?
Taste- hop forward, not too strong though. Balanced finish. Nice hop bitterness in the after tasted.
Mouthfeel- very smooth and crisp.
Overall- Pretty good pale ale. Hoppy without trying to be an IPA. I would definitely have another.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of floral hops, hint of grass, slight sweet malt, yeast, hint of hops, and slight sugar. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Also, the feel is almost watery. Tastes of grass, floral hops, yeast, sweet malt, hint of earthy malt, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, weak body, aroma and body dominated by floral/grass notes, average feel, and decent appearance. Nothing special, about this beer, average APA.

I had this beer on-tap in a tall glass in the Alaskan Lounge at Sea-Tac Airport.
Appearance: rich golden hue with no haze and a moderate effervescence. A nice lace is left on the glass as I drink ... Very attractive!
Smell: lightly caramelly malt aroma with lightly citrusy and resiny hops. Well balanced and enticing.
Taste: sweetish malt with citrusy hops, but it's not a hop bomb. The citrus stays in the aftertaste along with a moderate bitterness. I rather enjoy this beer!
Mouthfeel: medium body with good carbonation and concomitant creaminess. Great!
Overall: this is a highly quaffable brew. Capital!
Serving type: on-tap
