Really like this pale ale. It has a lot of up front hop aroma and flavor with low bitterness... Almost not enough. This is an IPA with training wheels. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to be a hop head. Nice complex hop flavor and great balanced malt profile.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours a hazy golden orange with visible floaties and a frothy off white head that fades to a thin top layer.

S: Floral hops, a little citrus, orange and maybe lime, a little peach note, followed with some malt sweetness.

T: Follows the nose, big floral hop hit with some citrus notes in there, followed with a solid malt backbone.

M: Light to medium body, light to medium carbonation.

O: This one intrigues me. I've had it before straight out of the bottle and a bit more citrus and malt sweetness came through. Maybe that one was fresher, who knows. Still a solid brew.

a. Thin less than 1 finger head that disappears. Orange in color. Can see through the beer, but a bit cloudy.

s. Smell is all pine and grapefruit - very powerful.

t. Taste is not as strong as the smell. A bit watery, but smooth and a nice summer IPA.

m. nicely carbonated, very smooth.

o. Very good beer that I would revisit, especially on a hot day.
