Appearance: clear, amber coloring, with a full, blooming ivory head of foam. Perfectly plays the part.

Aroma: Gorgeous. Light, airy, floral, and spilling over citrus. Alarmingly pleasant.

Taste: Bright, fresh, light and lovely. Absolutely everything you want in a pale ale. Lean bodied, lightly hoppy, just enough malt, expertly drinkable. Even tempered in all regards. Hoppy enough to keep it interesting, but not too much to make it distracting. Lean and clean malt profile. An excellent session ale, a damn near perfect pub ale. Set it down and throw your dart, pick it up again and take up where you let off in your story.

Had on draft at the brewery. Pours a mildly golden orangish with a half finger head. Moderate dry finish with a lingering grapefruit tang. Very bitter lingering taste follows the grapefruit.
