12 oz can poured into New Belgium globe

A - Light straw body, pale white one finger head that leaves little lacing, moderate carbonation. Some can conditioning remnants at the bottom

S - Mostly floral hops with some orange zest. Not particularly strong.

T - Citrus fruit hop bite, light pine and barley aftertaste.

M - Dry and crisp. Great compliment to most meals.

O - A classic example of an American Pale Ale and my go to "every day drinker" when a 12 pack cost $13. Nothing over the top, but a great beer non the less.
