A: Pours a golden yellow color with a massive head that fades down to a decent cap that leaves good lacing

S: Some earthy, citrusy, and piney hops up front along with some toasted maltiness and a light sweetness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the earthy and citrusy hops and goes into the toasted and bready maltiness. Moderately bitter with a balancing sweetness from the malt. Finishes with lingering light bitterness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: A solid pale ale with a good balance between hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Very easy to drink. Check it out if you're into hoppier pales

Hazy light-gold in color with a tall white head. This brew has citrus aromatics, a fresh aroma, and some underlying grain and grass. The taste is dryish with lots of hop presence. The citrus notes continue, along with some peppery character. Full in body and a clean refreshing finish.

Very cool artist series can! Prefer this over the Colette by Great Divide, which is also yummy!

On tap at a local bar and grille. Pours a hazy straw color, good lacing. Smell and taste of grapefruit, hops, tropical fruit. Light to medium mouthfeel, very refreshing, good. PS I just ran a race and this hits the spot.
