Clear light copper. Thin and bubbly beige head. The lace forms a nice spotted pattern all about. Aroma is very nice. Citrusy and pungent with some of that grapefruit pulp mixing with tangerine and cannabis. Perfect for a pale ale. Grassy flavor up front. But the citrus is there as well, as would be expected from these hops. Slight tangerine notes and grapefruit. Nice subdued bitterness. Warm biscuity malts lay underneath all the nice hop nuances. Quite a nice APA here.

Nice drinking pale ale...medium/light body...ABV is 5.3%...this isn't supposed to be a borderline IPA but more of a straight pale ale.

A juicy hoppiness is backed by a nice bready maltiness.

A great selection of hops turns this into an extremely tasty apa. Grassy Summit hops are evident on the nose and again on the taste...Summit and Simcoe also lend some strong tangerine notes...Some grapefruit is also present which I'll attribute to the Columbus.. definitely a citrus hop flavor and aroma and a strong one at that.

The breadiness of the malt is what makes this extremely drinkable.

Bitterness is a little higher than you'd probably expect.. There is some lingering grapefruit on the finish. It's not an IBU monster but the hops are a big part of this beer..not just in their juicy flavors either...

Hell of a nice Pale ale. Outstanding blend of hops combined with a nice bready malt backing.

American pale ale, named for the start of patio season..hurray! (Hey, it's Minnesota, we celebrate what little comfort we can find.)

Simcoe, Summit, Columbus hops, plus dry-hopped Centennial.
Clear tangerine coloration, sturdy white head.

Lovely citric aromatics, soft, flowery, gorgeous. sweet stuff.

Taste: more of the same, a citric quality above all else, but none too obtrusive,,,,Light bodied, easy drinking....easy on the tongue...hey, it's a
Patio beer!

Not something I would choose over Masala Mama...well, maybe if I need to give my palate a breather.
