Amber colour a little bit hazy. Aroma of citrus, pine and malt. Light body and medium carbonation. Flavour of hops, fruit, caramel with bread and grain. Orange and some grapefruit. Bittersweet. A nice balance and easy to drink.

I don't know when this beer was "retired" but my local Albertson's supermarket has them on sale today (7/26/1015) Reminds me of seeing my favorite rock band's "farewell tour"... Three years in a row ! (perhaps it's old inventory ?)

12 oz bottle(s) no discernible bottling date info

Pours a copper-peach colored body with a tan 1 inch head, some retention, decent lacing

Smell is mainly of floral hops, some pine. And a healthy dose of fresh bread like malt

Taste a nice balance of malts and hops that gives it a smooth taste, with a very slightly bitter finish

average feel

A nice pale ale There is a lot of balance between the hops and malt.
