Amazing example of an American pale ale. Real depth of flavour from the grain and well balanced. Like liquid marmalade.

Dark orange pour one finger head. Beautiful flowery hop aroma. Citrusy as well. Kind of a candied fruit. Pineapple. Strong malt first sip. Truly balanced. A kind of piney, sappy, bitterness. Bit of a lemony taste. Bitter oranges. Mouthfeel, well carbonated. Kindly of frothy. Overall, like standard oil. This is what most IPAs wish they were.

Clear orange body with persistent and sticky off-white head.

Sweet upfront with caramel malts and fruity/tropical hops.

Mild bitterness and a medium body. Tastes almost like orange juice with the sweet malts melding with the hop flavor.
