@ Ridgewood

Hazy orange with some attractive soapy foam on the surface. Loads of sticky lacing. Dank, herbal, earthy, savory hop aromas. Light, sweet citrus and some onion. Spicy, rustic, bitter hops with a big grainy finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Not sure I've experienced Comet hops before...pretty interesting.

on cask at beer study in chapel hill. into a shaker.

pours a cloudy yellow with a moderate foamy head. smell is BIG on bitterness. intriguing for a pale. the taste starts out in your face with a good hop presence and the finishes with a big, lingering bitterness. not your run of the mill APA by any stretch of the imagination. medium bodied with mild carbonation.

overall a very good beer for those that like a good bitter kick. recommended.
