Later figured out that I had already tried this, giving a taster a 3.75 on Untappd. Generally a big fan of New English so was excited to try this for what I thought was a first time. Rather quick review as I was waiting for my wife and daughter to come.

Poured a gold clear color with four fingers of rocky off-white head when I got it. A few bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Excellent foamy layered lacing. Very good retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled Citra and Amarillo with a big punch to my face. Seemed to be Simcoe, too. Also peach, grapefruit, tangerine, floral and orange blossom. Nearly perfect. (Smell - 4.75)

Tasted Citra, passion fruit, peach, nectarine, orange blossom, Amarillo, Simcoe, grapefruit and lingering stone fruit late. (Taste - 4.25)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, juicy, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.50)

This was just a world-class pale ale. Just lovely. (Overall - 4.50)

Look is clear yellow orange
Smell is amazing. Extremely hoppy nose that's in your face
Taste is piney with loads of hops that cover the palette. Extremely drinkable!
Feel is great, first sip had a lot of carbonation but third sip was smoother, probably because it was from a growler.
Overall, amazing beer just like all their other beers

-pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a rich white head
-big aroma of hops
-crisp, piney and really delicious
-a nice bite on the tongue with a moderate amount of carbonation
-I really enjoyed this beer. I could definitely kick back and enjoy more than two of these, in fact ...
