Single 12oz bottle poured in to a pint glass. Imported to upstate NY by my father (thanks dad!!!). No date or code to note, but this sample tastes extremely fresh.
A: Deep solid yellow brew, clear as a bell, with a stable 1/2" of white foam.
S: Huge wonderful aroma, wow, a ton going on here. Backbone of dry light malt sweetness with a hint of caramel, tasty. Label says there are 5 different hops in here and that complexity is very tasty. Notable is (what I'm guessing is) a big fruity dose of Summit. Then there's spicy, herby, citrusy stuff going on, a big rich bouquet of hoppy goodness.
T: All the wonderful things from the smell translate perfectly to the taste. Awesome. I'm really floored by how great this is.
M: Just enough body to not be watery. Thin and smooth, good robust carbo is kept in check by the extra body.
D: This brew is phenomenal, no doubt the best pale ale I've ever had. This is exactly what I want in a pale ale. Very little room for improvement. Wow!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a can-shaped glass.
A- Light, foamy pale white head forms three fingers thick. Hazy pale golden body with occasional spurts of carbonation.
S- Melon and citrus are big and bold. Hop resin hits the nose with a second whiff. It's a heavily fruity profile with hints of sweetness.
T- The citrus take its time to arrive and hit the palate, but then it builds into a strong orange peel flavor. Melon flavors waft in and out as well. The finish is resinous and offers a dose of pine.
M- It's impressive how refreshing and light drinking this is. The slight downside is that it initially feels a bit watered down until the hops hit with some flavor and an aggressive bitterness. It's still got enough sweetness to suggest there's some malt in there and this plays well of the melon flavors. It's an interesting blend of flavors and feels.
This could easily be my summer go-to. It's not filling, it's refreshing and it is full of interesting and tasty flavors. It's a gem.
