First had: on tap at Cigar City, Tampa, FL

Nice simple pale ale here. Golden-yellow pour, hazy, somewhat effervescent, capped off with a finger or so of foamy white head that retained well and laced the glass. Nice aroma of fresh citrusy hops, biscuity malt undertones. Basically the same in the taste, citrus and pine hops, nice balance of pale biscuity malts. Light-medium body, easily drinkable. Nothing new and amazing, just a solid pale ale overall.

From 08/18/13 notes. Had this on tap at a restaurant in the Tampa International Airport. Poured into a 16 oz. pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy golden yellow-orange color with one inch of bright white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, pale malts, wheat, grains, bread, and dough. Nice nose, the citrus hops up front are pretty good.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, pale malts, fruity malts, bready malts, and some wheat. Nice taste, better than the nose with more fruit to it.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty solid APA. Some nice citrus hops throughout drinking and nice fruit in the taste. Easy to drink, would have it again.

4/3.75/4/4/3.75

32 oz. poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Pours with a small white head. Faint surface wisps.

Smell - Citrus and tropical fruit hops. And then a bucket of diacetyl. Ugh.

Taste - Zesty orange. Grainy. Interesting hop flavor. Like a spicy orange hop finish. Tastes really good and then diacetyl.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Low carbonation.

Overall - Could have been an interesting pale ale. Just a diacetyl bomb.
