Huge thanks to yamar68 for this bottle. Bottled on 08/26/13 and served into a tulip glass. Pours a crystal clear amber body with two fingers of thick sudsy bone white foam. Awesome lacing and retention. Aroma is very pine and grapefruit forward with just a touch of crackery malts. Bitter grapefruit leads into resinous pine and smooth bready malts. Falls a bit flat towards the end but then again it is a pale and not an IPA. Very tasty and refreshing. Mouth feel is coating and sticky. This is just a solid, no frills pale ale. Damn good stuff, mmm simcoe!

As I have come to expect from RR, the beer pours beautifully. Couple fingers of fairly dense head with great lacing.

Smells pine and citrus.

Piney hops come across with a dry finish. Nice use of bitterness and hop flavor working togather to create a very nice pale.
