Excellent pale ale poured from a tall boy canned 5 weeks ago. Aroma of peach, flora and orange rind. Nice malt backbone brings a slightly sweet flavor to the fore and balances out the floral and citrus hops. Easy drinking and smooth are its greatest virtues. Enjoyable quaf.

Poured into a Perfect Pint glass.

A: Clear gold. A one finger off-white head that lingers. Sudsy lacing.

S: Citrus, lemons, tangerine, oranges, soapy.

T: Piney hops, citrus-y. Bright. Light bitterness on the finish. A very sessionable brew.

M: Low to medium with medium carbonation.

O: Very easy drinking. Glad I finally got to try it. Thanks, Darren.

Fresh cut grass, floral and citrus. While I love the juicy, fruity APA's/IPA's - this one actually has a lot complexity for an APA. It plays nicely with multiple hop notes including English herbal/floral, American citrus and grassy/pine. While it is not my go-to hop profile, I really respect the complexity this has for a Pale Ale. At 5.2% ABV this is a great flavorful beer that is a perfect candidate in a 16oz format!

Clear amber pour (bright copper). World class head volume, lacing and retention.

Outstanding nose of citrus rind (orange and a bit of grapefruit), a dose of dank (that is in balance with the citrus), light pine and a solid malt backbone (mostly biscuit but subtle caramel notes also). As it warms, light tropical notes emerge (mango) and dank aspects fade a bit.

Light body that is semi-smooth in texture. World class carbonation with a burst of effervescence in the middle that flows to a finely bubbled rollicking prickly finish.

The flavor profile is outstanding. Quite flavorful for a pale ale, this one is hop flavor (exactly like the nose) centered. Rind with bits of pine lead then flow into an orange aspect as the middle sweetness arrives. Moderate bitterness is present that is well balanced with biscuit (toasted and grainy) and subtle caramel sweetness. Orange makes its strongest contribution as the finish approaches coupled with light mango. The finish is crisp and slightly dry. This dryness intensifies as the lingering rind/pine bitterness fades.
