A - pours a clear rusty orange color. A solid fingers worth of white head which fades to a thin film leaving spotty lacing on the glass.
S - nose is soft and nuanced. plentiful citrus hop character comes through as well as leafy and slightly herbaceous notes. Cake batter sweetness with possibly a touch of vanilla. Quite intriguing.
T - surprisingly dry on the palate with maybe just a hint of sweetness. fresh doughy bread upfront with hints of crispy crust. Center is round and full of citric bitterness and notes of lemon pith. Finish is quick and crisp.
M - medium nearing full body. Creamy texture helped by the high quantity of frothy carbonation.
O - an excellent pale ale. I am every happy I was finally able to try this ale and see what a fantastic example of the style it truly is.
