3.33/5 rDev -11.7%
Pours a clear, light orange color with two dense fingers of white head.
Smells of light grain some orange and lemon peel.
Bitter orange and some lemon peel with a light malt presence.
Light bodied yet slick with moderate carbonation.
This is a very refreshing, satisfying warm months beer.

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. The “Bottled With Love on” date is “11 30 2011.”
Appearance: Straight pour into a pint glass. The color is hazy gold. Two fingers of eggshell-colored head dissipated to leave a thin lacing, spotted bubbles, and a ring of buttery foam around the edge.
Smell: Off the bat it smells of freshly sliced grapefruit. (Yowza!) There are also other citrus notes: orange, lemon, and maybe tangerine. It also has a hint of pine spice. Below the grapefruit and citrus is a foundation of sweet caramel, which keeps the astringency in check. Hints of honey also creep in after the beer has warmed.
Taste: The mouthfeel has a lot of body and is pretty dry. Judging from the smell I thought the bitterness would be through the roof for a pale ale, but it is very tame. Overall, the flavor is a well-balanced medley of grapefruit (less dominant than it was in the smell), orange and lemon citrus, sweet caramel, and honey. A bitter aftertaste lingers on the middle of the tongue and back of the mouth.
Drinkability: Solid and very drinkable. A very good brew.
