The color's about an even copper, clear with the slightest chill haze that clears up. It ends up being translucent due to the darker color. A light tan head gets as high as one finger and takes time to drop to a full thick foam that keeps stable. Plentious patching sticks creamily and thickly to the glass. It leaves some bubbling in a way I've never seen before.
The hop bouquet is a little unfamiliar. It's citrusy with a bit of sweeter fruits, balanced by toasty buttered biscuit, caramel and a bit of nut. The strength fades in and out.
Citrus with both sweetness and tart zest come out up front on the tongue, with floral and almost minty additions. The hops are strongest, but it is well balanced by the malts. The nuttiness comes out into the finish, while it starts off on an earthier note.
The body is medium and there's a good smoothness under a big crisp bite.

For a pale ale this beer surprised me- present with soft golden colors and a hint of orange present in pale ale's, a very light carbonation charectarized this beer for me. Certainly a good beer for the summertime - not much hoppiness in the brew. A strong appley taste. would reccomend this beer.

when this was poured, it has a orangish color body with a small head that quckly lays down to a ring of lace. The smell has a earthy hop and malt aroma to it. The taste has a pine taste up front, and followed by a hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is smooth and leaves a slight bitterness on the tonuge. Overall this is a slightly above average pale ale.
