On tap at the pub in Tampa Airport.

A light golden straw color. Big sticky white foam head that leaves tons of lacing.

Aroma is prett muted. Some pale, cracker like grains, a little musty/earthy, and very light citrus.

The flavors are a different story. It has a nice spicy bite right of the bat along with some grapefruit rind, lemon, and distinct cedar wood. A nice consistent bitterness. I saw Bravo hops on the menu to thank for that. That woody (haha) flavor really lingers along side the grainy pale malts. Excellent.

Overall this is a very tasty. I really, really like the cedar aspect. Invasion may still be a better pale ale overall though.

The carbonation seems a bit on the too high side, but otherwise it is soft and light bodied.

I should note here that I went back and bumped the smell a tad because the cedar starts to come through a lot more as it warms.
