Served in a pint glass at Brendan Behan in J.P.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with good vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Grapefruit, tangerine, light floral, herbal, grassy, bready, and pale malts.

Taste: The hop flavor is pretty chill with nice malt balance and mild bitterness to round things out.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, light bitterness, light bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty awesome pale ale. Definitely grabbing another.

Hazy gold color. Decent starting head that leaves some solid lines of ring lace.

Western Hemisphere hop aroma of grapefruit rind and pine needles.

Light in body like one would expect in a "summer" ale, but the rest is strongly flavored, mostly harsh citrus. There's even an alcohol presence despite the low abv. Pale malt start but it fades quickly. In short a hop lovers summer beer.
