12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, pineapple, peach, orange zest, light pine, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, pineapple, peach, orange zest, pine, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, pineapple, peach, orange zest, pine, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness. lightly increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good pale ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Super gusher from the time I popped the cap. Even after letting it settle for 5 minutes, the head was overflowing when I poured into the tulip. Pale hazy gold.

Grassy and cracker aroma.

Grassy and herbal hops. Very bitter and dry. Malt is bready.

Way over carbonated, lighter body.

Decent but for the gushing carbonation.

Looks outstanding. Pale golden yellow with a fluffy white head that leaves tons of lacing. Smells excellent. Very citrusy and hoppy. It has significant citrus flavors. Mainly sweet orange, and some lemon along with club cracker like pale malts. Pretty crisp body. A very, very solid pale ale.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden with a fluffy eggshell white head that sticks around leaving great retention and very sticky lacing. The aromas have nice citrus notes along with some fresh bread. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. The citra hops are subtle, but shine. Nice amount of Orange and some tangerines in The mix. Some biscuit. The malts and hops balance each other out. Very clean. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is great. It's light, but extremely creamy and fluffy. Very smooth.

This is a solid pale ale. The craftsmanship is impressive. Overall it's not mindblowing, but it's very enjoyable.
