This beer pours a cloudy pale copper with a moderate head. The aroma's are primarily tropical at first - mango, pineapple and guava dominate - followed by a slight hint of pine and lemon. The flavor reminds me of sweet candied pineapple, with a nice falling tone of pine, and something almost minty. The mouthfeel is the coolest thing about this session beer - very light, very small bubbles with an almost saison like level of fizz. Overall while the hop flavor profile is not my favorite here, the awesomely light and adventurous mouthfeel makes the sweetness less of an issue. Certainly a very well done session offering, and one of the best beers from Brau Brothers.

sometimes you start reading the reviews and wonder if someone had the same beer as you. this isn't one of those times.

this one pours out clear and golden, with a decent, white head. smell is like the flavor - all hops. i'm getting plenty of pine mixed with lemon and mint (or maybe catnip?). not surprisingly, the mouthfeel is clean and dry, with a bit of that lemon taste lingering.

this is nothing legendary, but it's exactly what you'd want from a sessionable beer. you don't feel cheated with this one. i'd put more of these in the fridge.

L: Pours bright gold under a 1ā€¯clingy white foam cap.
S: Hop driven nose with pine, mint, biscuit.
T: Attacks with big malt with a slight initial background sweetness that slowly fades to reveal an underlying dryness. As it warms melon and citrus notes come forward. Finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness.
F: Medium body, medium carbonation.
O: This is a standout, easy to drink, full flavored beer that is definitely sessionable.

Not a huge fan of pale ales. Pretty hoppy and bitter. Smells like a flower.

If you like them, you'd love it. I don't. One of the stronger ones.
