A: Beer pours a deep copper/amber color with a one finger head with very good rentention. Very sticky lacing is present on the glass.
S: Floral and citrus pretty much dominate the scent. The lemon/grapefruit scent is pretty dominant. Past the floral and citrus notes there is a little bit of malt sweetness to be discovered.
T: Sweet malts up front, which quickly give away to a bitterness of grapefruit and zesty lemon. The bitterness is very mild although lingers for a little while after each sip.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. It's not as dry of a finish as I was expecting, but I won't complain about it.
O: It's a very good offering from what is considered a very good brewery. Is it the best pale ale that I have ever had? Of course not.. but it's not bad by any stretch. It's a very well balanced beer that I wouldn't reject if it were offered to me.
Serving type: on-tap
