Deep golden color ale with fruity citrus character and a hint of caramel. A white and lacy head. Slightly bitter that is light on the palate. Nice hops spiciness in the aftertaste. There is a sharp hoppiness on the palate at the finish. A clean and satisfying beer.

Pours a crystal clear golden color, with a moderate, not very dense white head. The head dissipates into a thin ring about halfway through.
Aroma is mostly hops, with an adequate maltiness. Very subdued apple aroma, barely perceptable. A little grapefruit.
Flavor is very clean, with a pleasant hop bite coming in midway and finishing the beer with a citric tang. Malts are mild and barely balance the hops, but at least it's there. A touch of grapefruit flavor. Body is light to medium, with moderate carbonation. Not half bad.
I had this directly after the Lake Placid IPA, and I liked it much better. Hops are well situated in the malt, and the flavors are clean. Refreshing.
