Growler from brewery poured into Brandy Snifter.
Appearance: Orange with small off white head. It takes an agressive pour to get the head to show and it doesn't last all that long. Some lacing on glass.
Smell - Citrus Hops - I think it is Simcoe. Are you sure this isn't an IPA? They say they call it a Pale Ale because it doesn't have the IPA backbone. It certainly has an in your face hoppyness though.
Taste - Well, it features the Citrus hops and isn't really that complex. I generally like what it does have, so when I go to Short's it is not uncommon for me to get some of this beer. If you want a fruity hop fix, this is the place. Admittedly, that is about it, though.
Mouthfeel - Hoppy dryness/puckering.
Drinkablity - I like the hops, but that is about all there is to this one.
Serving type: growler
