I bought a growler of this after a visit to Three Tides. Poured a dark orange color with an abundant off white color head. The head was thick and lasted while drinking the beer. Strong scents of hops. Strong flavors of pine and citrus. Not to much of a malt back bone, just enough to know it was there. Mouthfeel was somewhat heavy. Very easy to drink and very enjoyable.

Had this new beer on tap last night at Novare Res. Listed as a pale ale brewed with fresh wholeflower Chinnok hops. 20oz pour into my chalice

A: Semi dark orange in appearance. Leaves a small amount of white head at first, but there is very limited retention. Left some spotted lacing along the top of the glass

S: Subtle notes of hops, grass and lemon rind. Occasionally some floral notes came through. Overall a nice, light grassy hop smell

T: Starts with the hops, on the lighter side. There is some pine that comes through in the middle. Touch of earthiness in the finish

M: Light mouthfeel. Appropriate amount of carbonation, leaving just a bit of tingle on the tongue. Grassy, dry finish

D: A nice, simple pale ale. Incredibly easy to drink. I'm continually impressed with their lineup. One of these days I'll head up to visit...
