A- pours a nice bright yellow, with a cap of thick 1 finger head. Good retention. Many bubbles rising for the duration of the drink.
S- Wow! Might be the most odiferous pale I have ever had. Fantastic citrus hop notes and fresh hop aroma! I cant keep my nose out of the glass. Unreal this is coming from a pale.
T- Fresh hop and citrus follows the nose, laid down over a super smooth malt background. An exercise in balance. Immensely drinkable. Nice bitter hop kick at the end.
M- Spot on, light body rolls off the tongue, carbonation plucks at your tongue along with the light bitterness. Refershing.
O- very refreshing and flavorful pale. Might be the best pale I have had.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle poured into a New Glarus pokal. Clear, pale golden color, with a small white head that retained well and left sheets of lacing on the glass. Nice looking brew. Clean, fresh aroma, pale malts and citrusy hops, light floral/grassy notes. The taste was a bit more thinned out than the aroma would have led me to believe, but it was still good overall: crisp and clean, light citrusy and floral hops, and some sugary pale malt sweetness. Light-medium body, easy drinkability, nicely balanced, with a very mild bitterness. A good, simple pale ale.

A: Pours a lightly-to-moderately hazy vibrant golden color with a hint of orange and 1 finger of bubbly off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring.
S: Fresh and clean hop character with a hint of citrus, peaches, and stone fruit. Very light but perceptible pine character providing a slight spice. Malt sweetness and just a hint of alcohol.
T/M: Mouthfeel is thin to medium with moderate slightly astringent carbonation. Carbonation doesn't foam the beer up so much as dry the mouth and provide a slightly acidic burn to complement the citrus of the beer. Flavor is clean and unassuming up front into a citrus hop note accompanied by a mild malt sweetness. Finish is juicy citrus alongside the malt sweetness into a coating dryness and very mild bitterness.
O: Very, very drinkable. The mouthfeel on the finish really keeps you sipping on this one. This is much closer to a pilsener than many of the pale ales that I have typically enjoyed the most, but the malt profile is also much less wheaty and prominent than the pale ales I have enjoyed the least. This finds a unique space and nice balance for itself, and is really a nice beer. I'd probably not seek this out specifically in trade, but would absolutely purchase it as an everyday sort of beer if it were readily available.
