Review from notes
Growler filled up a few hours ago to a pint glass

Pours a vibrant golden orange with a finger of head. Low carbonation, good retention and okay lacing

Smells like....simcoe. Very catty pine followed up with a light citrus. A very submissive caramel malt works to back everything up

Taste is nearly identical to the smell. Lots of pine and kitty litter on the tongue, followed again by some citrus and tropical notes. Again, caramel backbone holding everything together

Feel is a light / medium body with moderate bitterness, low carbonation. Alcohol is hidden, it's easy to drink

Overall it's no Pliny but good none the less. Single hop beers are great for getting to know the hops, but I'm always reminded drinking them how boring they become without others to mix up the flavor

Serving type: growler

On-tap at 38 Degrees, on to the beer:

This pale ale is a light orange color, moderate sized head on top, and solid lacing around. The aroma brings clean, piney, and vague fruitiness to the nose. It's a pale ale which leans towards the hoppy side, not just in aroma but in taste as well. Rather clean and fruity with a pleasant hoppiness that doesn't go into bold IPA territory, and adding a light honey malt base further enhances this ale.

This is one pleasing pale ale which is good for everyday drinking. Be on the lookout for this one.
