Pours a cloudy maize color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong resin, piney hops, spicy hops, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong resin, piney hops, spicy hops, hint of sweet malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of grass. Overall, good appearance, feel, body, and blend.

Light honey slight haze finger of White fluff settles to film good lace. Lemony citrus and toasted bread. Lemon tea and slight herbal hops. Little bubbles, light plus body very drinkable. Tasty beer that I would certainly have again. Walks a fine line between its components, well-balanced and refreshing.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic glass. There was no bottled date or drink by date but based on the taste and smell it did not seem to be out of date.

Poured a cloudy orange/yellowish color. Did not notice any aromas that would be deemed bad or good. Taste was nice. Subtle hop/bitterness balance.

Overall, a very drinkable beer. Will be adding this to my "to buy again" list.
