The color is a very cloudy but bright unpolished gold. Bubbles cling to the walls of the glass and rise from the bottom for most of the duration, breaking the surface when the initial cap of almost one finger fades off. Rocky lacing clings pretty strongly, dense but perhaps moderately plentiful, despite the short life of the head itself, which still keeps up some foam on the top.
The first whiff is just bread, but lots of citrus comes in. Grapefruit, lemon, orange and strawberry all make the rounds for something both zesty and sweet, a little rind pith contributing as well. hops are light on the nose, mostly grassy.
The taste brings more hops right up front, pith and pine along with floral and young, stemmy wood. Citrus still comes through, though not as bright or sweet as they are in the aroma. Biscuit and bread make the malt backbone.
It's crisp, and the body reaches a solid medium. It goes smooth, a little rough in the middle, then smooths out even as the finish dries almost completely.

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Pale and transparent orange, 1/2 finger white head, decent lacing and a little active carbonation rising up.

Smell - Mellow citrus, subtle pine and even some roasted notes, not getting lots of alcohol.

Taste - Similiar to the nose with more malt character. Subtle citrusy zest with orange, clementine, tangerine, grapefruit, and even floral notes of pine but all seem to be blanketed by malt character that gives off more of a subtle roast.

Mouthfeel - Light/medium bodied, light/medium carbonation, refreshing and smooth.

Overall - Good beer and glad I tried it.

Appearance: This beer pours a hazy golden color with a decent head. Nothing to write home about.

Smell: A solid malt backbone that will come through on the taste. Seems to be a little smokiness that is interesting.

Taste: Like any Short’s beer, the bitterness is front and center. Even the heavy malt backing cannot fight off the hops.

Mouthfeel: Solid beer but the head retention was a little light..

Overall: A good but different example of an American Pale Ale. Glad I bought a six pack.

A-Golden caramel appearance. Nice off white head about a finger and half. Decent head retention with nice cap that lasted all the way to the last sip. Great lacing.

S-A good amount of clean hops, well balanced by a nice bready undertone. Also a bit of earthiness to it.

T- Good bitterness upfront equally balance by a good sweetness and biscuit taste. Following the nose the sweet earthiness lends a nice finish to it.

M- Light to medium carbonation. Very refreshing and light.

O- It's a pretty good beer overall. Nothing amazing, but it's highly drinkable and has good flavor. The earthiness is a nice touch too.
