22oz bottle filled from the tap, courtesy of Gbontrag. Thanks!
This APA was known only as "Pale Ale" and was one of the beers brewed under the "Lips of Faith" series. An "X" on the cap bears the only mark on the bottle. Dry-hopped with Amarillo.

Pours clear goldish-copper, with a humble, pure white head of modest proportion.
The thinnish cap of foam dissapated to partial coverage, with a few errant dots of lace.
Aromatics are floral and fruity. A nice, abundant amount of peachy nectar and light malt.
Apricots and tangerines round out the nose.
Mouthfeel is light and crisp. A lingering biterness has a minerally nip.
The pallet is tropical and crisp. Plenty of citrus fruit with a light bitterness. Just enough bittering hops to keep things lively after the fruits fade.
More peaches and apricots, with only a trace of residuals coming up front in the juiciness of the fruit.
Finishes quickly sans a smooth bitterness and alcohol is nill.
Extremely refreshing and drinkable, without being boring.
A full pitcher would be nice!
