4.5/5 rDev +4.9%
Poured from a 22 bomber. One finger of fluffy, irregular head dissipating quickly with a little lacing. Pretty golden light orange color and some haziness.
Nice fruity and citrusy simcoe hoppiness. A swirl really brings out the malt character which is nice and caramely but pretty light. Sweet pine scent comes through.
Such an amazing hop character without a thick maltiness. Super refreshing rindy and spicy citrus characters really shine. Very elegant, clean, simple and unique flavor. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing.
Just an outstanding Pale Ale, venturing into IPA territory but retaining a nice light drinkability.

On tap at the brewery. Really enjoyed the sample I had last night so coming back to a full pint
A-served with a thin layer of sticky white foam this beer is clear and a deep copper color.
S-aromas of bright citrus (grapefruit) and tropical (papaya) shine thru in this. A clean malt character is also present
T-the hops are upfront and brilliant but the malt is so well balanced in this beer
M-finishes smooth with plenty of co2 to carry the flavorful sim is hops
O-a flavorful yet easy to drink brew that is really well done.

Clear, bright, golden orange with a moderately sized near-white head that lasts for a while. This leaves the glass messy with spiderwebs of lace. Perfect.
An incredibly clean, vibrant, wonderful aroma of decidedly fresh hops: floral, citrus, and pine character combine tremendously well. This aroma is nearly as good as Zombie Dust's.
Moderately bitter, floral and citrus hops, slight pine, balanced and completed nicely by enough bready malts to make this incredibly drinkable and distinctly a pale ale.
Medium bodied with high carbonation. Crisp, refreshing, delicious, and incredibly drinkable.
Simply awesome, though I do believe Humulus Wet, Zombie Dust, and Hoppy Birthday are just slightly better.
