Bottle from 05/31/17 into a tulip glass. Bright golden with 2 fingers of variable density white head with minimal retention and left streaked lacing. Nose is mostly grassy. Taste follows the nose with a bit of earthiness, finishes with mild bitterness that lingers a bit. Thinner bodied with medium carbonation, a little bit lively on the tongue.

An OK APA that's very forgettable.

Pours a half finger of head on a slightly hazy light straw colored body.
The aroma is lemon with some musty grapefruit.
The taste has moderate grapefruit bitterness, a little metallic in the middle, and finishes with a touch of sweetness.
The texture is crisp with a little fizz.
It's a little too "grapefruit" bitter for me. But fine nonetheless.

Clear pale straw colour with a moderate white head. Fair head retention.

Mild grapefruit aroma. No malt. Just some hops.

Crisp, bitterness with some hop character in the form of mild grapefruit flavour. Clean and simple.

Medium light body with moderately high carbonation.

Good, straightforward and simple hoppy pale ale. Refreshing.
