Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16 oz. can into pint glass.

A: Pours a deep yellow to light gold, with a two-finger white head that settles to foam. Decent visible carbonation.

S: Bright orange/citrus aroma, some flower & pine hops also.

T: Hoppy up front (following the nose), although a little muted compared to aroma. Then biscuity malt & sweetness.

M: Tends towards a lighter mouthfeel, nice amount of carbonation. Pithy hop hang. Minimal alcohol presence.

O: Definitely a really nice hoppy pale ale. A very well done beer!

16 oz. can courtesy of DSho. Pours a gorgeous golden amber with 1 finger of foamy white head that keeps a nice cap until the end along with a fair amount of sticky lacing.

Aroma is hops up front, citrus and floral.

Taste is a multitude of hops along with some sweet citrus notes, spice, malt and toasty bread with no alcohol presence.

Mouthfeel is crisp and light, somewhat dry, good carbonation with a smooth creamy finish.

Overall this is so drinkable, would be easy to knock back quite a few on any given day. Very well balanced, highly recommended. Cheers ~

Saturated sunset in the tropics orange, high clarity, speckled lace all around the glass, and a decent head when first poured.

Some orange peel and floral notes, seems like Cascade or maybe Centennial.

Lightly malty with a citrusy edge, moderately bitter with a smooth feel to it. Light to medium bodied with a easygoing level of carbonation, finishes dry with lingering herbal bitterness. Mellow and sessionable, solid go-to beer when in Indy.

Thanks Howard for the hook up!

Appearance: Clear burnished copper body topped by a finger of frothy foam. Looks like a pale ale.

Smell: A blast of ambiguous citrus as soon as I pop the can. Further inspection reveals a slight vegetal and grass note that's inoffensive. Once in the glass, the bready malt backbone comes out a bit more. It's not terribly aromatic or exciting, but it's appealing enough.

Palate: Decently hoppy with a moderate level of bitterness. Flavors of orange pith and grapefruit are dominant, and there's a slightly astringent herbal-vegetal note that trails behind. Slightly mineral/metallic mid-palate. Malt is barely noticeable, and the body feels a bit thin. The finish is largely bitter, though there's a dash of bready malt.

Overall: Nothing exceptional here, but certainly solid stuff. I'd gladly drink it again.
