4.18/5 rDev +13.9%
Hazy golden appearance, similar to honey. Two finger head after normal pour with nice lacing on the sides of glass
Citrus and flowers in the nose. Smells hoppy and vibrant.
The taste is a great balance of sweet and bitter. The hops are present throughout, starting mildly and building after initial contact with the tongue. The finish is not overly bitter, though. There is sweetness and complexity in the finish as opposed to just bitterness that is common with some pale ales. Excellent
medium bodied and mildly carbonated. standard pale ale feel.
Overall this is an excellent pale ale. I could drink a bunch!

Served in a pint glass with a nice one and a half fingers worth of a creamy and bubbly white head. Clear pale straw colored body. Good lacing and fair retention.
Smells like a juicy grapefruit, some pine resin and bready yeast.
Tastes like a bubbly, juicy grapefruit mixed with some pine and bready malt flavors. A firm lingering resinous bitterness.
Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Somewhat coating and oily on the finish.
Overall this is a great beer. Nice job Ron. This is fairly well balanced with great hop character.
$5.50 a pint.

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, golden in color, clear, high carbonation
Smell: grass and piney hops
Taste: sweet caramel start followed by light pine hops and big citrus hops
Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, sweetish start bitter middle with a less bitter end
Overall: I like the combination of hops on this one. A nice clean bitter beer. Nothing mind blowing but certainly something I could see myself picking up again.

Clear and golden colored with coppery highlights and a firm and frothy head of off-white foam that lingers long and leaves fat rings around the glass as it's drained. Inviting aroma of citrusy hops, some grassy and woody notes.
Sharp hoppy flavors full of tangerine and grapefruit, morphing to pine, sappy with hints of mint and herbal notes. An understated honey malt flavor rides beneath and keeps this one well balanced. Grapefruit pith lingers. Even mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, full and round. Great beer, very hoppy and very drinkable.

From the external appearance, I could have assume that this beer would be as simple as many of the mass produced brews.
It pured just slightly more amber than your 'light' beers.
But thats where the similarity ended!. The nose was full of hops and citrus. There was a definite bouquet fresh pink grapefruits.
The first taste was like the bouquet. A good dose of hops, just the right bitterness along with nice citrus lemon,orange grapefruit.
This one tasted very crisp and alive. The mouthful was big along with a good lingering after taste

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a yellow gold color with a residual 1/4 inch of fluffy white foam. Looks like a blonde, semlls like a pale. Light pine smell. Taste is a light malt that builds quickly into a hop wall. Leaves a small bitter taste on the tongue. Some citrus in the finish.
Just different enough to be unique. Interesting and pretty good.

poured from bottle into a pint glass. Pours with a nice head and is a light amber or slight reddish color.
Odor is floral and very typical of a pale ale.
mouth feel is a little light. It is pretty carbonated.
Taste is crisp at first and then gives way to hops and ends with a hoppy bitterness. After taste is bitter hoppy. Overall a solid effort and a above average pale ale.

Bright tin gold. Clumpy, sticking white foam. Spotty shards of large bubbled carbonation. Minted evergreen and lime peel aroma with soft red licorice candy accents. Initially crisp, powdered lime hoppy and evergreen bitter with a lasting spearmint aftertaste. Clean pale malt sugared backbone with a strong bitterness to squelch it, although its more chalk than abrasive piney resin. Hints of lime dust and red licorice careen off brisk evergreen flavors all the way to the end. Finishes briskly hopped and just sugared pale malty enough with a telltale fusion of non-citrus based hop elements. An awesome classic.
