Had on tap for the 50/50 tap takeover during SF Beer Week 2013.

Very smooth and delicious APA. Likely dry hopped but not known for certain. Can put it up with other similar hoppy pale ales; Hoppy Birthday, Zombie Dust and Row. Would like to see them all side by side. I am very much fan of this style brew, all of the flavor with less booze.

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is tropical: pineapple and mango with some pine.
The taste is moderate bitterness with honey sweetness to balance.
The texture is light.
Nice.

Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours hazy golden orange amber with a frothy light tan beige head that settles to a firm layer that hangs around and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Zesty citrus, fruity and floral notes, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

T: Citrus, grapefruit, orange, and lemon, some underlying fruity notes, peach, lychee, maybe a hint of watermelon, backed with biscuity malt and caramel sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Seems just a little bit subdued, but still a nice pale.
