On tap at the brewery. The beer arrives a crystal clear golden amber color with a nice 1.5 finger white head, good retention, and decent lacing. The nose is mild but approachable with earthy hop character along with a gentle pale 2-row malt base. According to the tour guide only 2 malts used (2-row and crystal 60? Not sure he wouldn't confirm). The flavor is nice and easy drinking. The hops again are a little earhty in character with the malt base providing a pleasant flavor. Mildly bitter, very approachable. Lighter bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this is an easy drinking Pale. Amazing that when it was introduced it was a hop bomb of sorts and now that seems to be the norm, a trendsetter.
