Pours dark amber/honey colored with thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing on the glass is excellent. Citrusy, hoppy aroma. Great hop forward taste followed by a smooth citrus malty taste. Aftertaste is bitter but not too bitter. The hops and malts are balanced very well. Great beer!!

I personally consider this one of my "go to" micro. It's got a bold taste when you start with a hoppy citrus taste and then mellows out with a kick of hops. Love the amber color. Not a traditional Pale Ale at all.

WIFE TAKE: I thought this was Irish Amber. Hey look, the can has a mustache!

I had this one last night at Another Pointe of View, and I didn't realize I hadn't tried their pale ale. It was a very pleasant surprise, smelling of citrus, malt and big dose of pine. Taste was a great blend of grapefruit citrus, a healthy dose of malt. Really hit the spot. A big white head and lacing down the glass. If their IPA was this good, they'd really be onto something. As it is, this is their best beer, imo.

Enjoyed this can out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a copper hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates leaving nice rings down the side of the glass and ends in a wispy lace.

S: Good hoppy aroma with a slight citrus background.

T: Bitter hoppy flavor with that same citrus background that finishes on the dry side of bitter.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Excellent pale ale.
