Pours a straw color with a finger of head. The nose is delightfully hoppy. The body is quite light but the hop flavor is strong, especially on the finish.

If i did not know better, I would have thought that this was a West Coast IPA.

Had pint on tap at Al's of Hampden

Hazy dark gold
Super hoppy aroma, nothing else
A textbook example of the Columbus hop with a high intensity of flavor and aroma
Bitterness is strong yet within the style
Overall the hoppiest pale ale I've had in a while. I wish I could drink this daily

Could pass for a session ipa. I don't think I've ever scored a pale ale this highly

Really strong hoppy aroma, one of the strongest I've come across in some time. Taste follows with a really intense lemon flavor, so intense it's almost a bit sour.
