Pours a nice bright golden color with good clarity and a sticky bright white head. Lots of grainy biscuit aromas with some piney hop resin underneath. Overall though rather faint in the scent department.

Crisp, grainy and dry. Lighter in body but it holds together very well. Hop presence is slightly mellow and really only coming through enough to present the palette with a touch of pine and balancing the malt to finish super dry. Refreshing, good, clean and pretty standard. I'd never grab this over hop back though which has the same sessionability, availability, and price tag.

This brew pours a beautiful amber/copper color with a medium head which dissapates after a few minuets with lacing remaining in the glass throughout. Good carbonation

The smell is very hoppy, lots of floral hops, with a few malts and orange and grapefruit. Slight bready taste too.

The mouthfeel is thick, chewy and bready.

Strong floral hop taste, the malts also come in after the first sip but the hops dominate. There is also a grainy, slightly bready/biscut taste. The hops dominate thoughout out the hop oils linger on the toungue after swallowing.

Overall a good beer, especially for the warm weather. Kind of like a Troegs "Nugget Nectar" light.

12 oz. bottle, bottled 2/22/12.

Poured into a tulip, got a nice 2 fingers of cream colored head over an attractive light amber body. The head quickly faded, but left a nice covering over the surface, and some splotchy lacing here and there.

Smell is spicy, a little caramel, and juicy citrus.

Very juicy, sweet citrus throughout. Apricot, perhaps. Well balanced by some caramel malt, and dried on the finish by some herbal, grassy bitterness. The mouthfeel is solid, refreshing, just enough carbonation, and remains in the background to the taste.

A unique, flavorful APA, for sure. Very enjoyable.

Bottle poured into a Dogfish Head glass. Nice cloudy orange appearance.

This one has some good bite to it. The flavor is hoppier than I'm used to with a pale ale, and some bitterness lingers long after each sip which I like. Citrusy/grassy flavors emerge. Some very mild carbonation as well. Goes down smooth.

I'm looking forward to drinking the rest of this with some pizza while taking in the Bruins game tonight. Definitely in the upper tier of pale ales.
