I enjoyed this on tap at Brass Rail deli, served chilled in a pint.

The color is resplendent golden with light haze with thin white head and fine bead with small bubbles that rise at a moderate pace while lace sticks in a film. The smell is slightly fruity with fragrant floral hops with slight citrus/lemony odor with a semi-sweet malt aroma.
The feel is very good with malt balanced not quite -more like leaning to the hop side with slight caramel texture and moderately carbonated with semi-bitter and dry finish with low astringency

The taste is wonderfully fruity and citrus flavors that pop with a mild spice and lemon zest flavor with subtle malt adding a light sweet taste w/ mildly bitter hop quality with slight herbal and earthy flavor as it warms with a nice peppery dry finish. Overall this is a pretty wonderful pale, very clean and full of hop flavor -recommended
