Pours a nice bright straw yellow with a quickly dissipating white head.

Smell is lemony.
Taste is lemony, crisp, dry, mild grapefruit rind barely backed with a thin pale malt profile. It is a very pleasing and refreshing dry and crisp pale ale ala Daisy Cutter but with a bigger hop nose and bite.

I'd drink a lot more of it if it wasn't twice the price it should be for comparable products.

Very drinkable, light-bodied, citrus-forward APA. Bottled: 10-3-13

Pale orange, slightly hazy but still fairly bright. Copious foam and intricate lacing all around the glass.

Pale malt and citrus peel aroma, light green botanicals.

Moderate bitterness, very light and airy feel, earthy herbal green hop bitterness that lingers into the aftertaste. Bitter greens, light citrus peel, pale malt flavors. Quite drinkable and clean. Overall a very nice APA, a classic some might say, though a tad pricey for what it is.
