Poured a fresh bottle into a large monic glass. It's a bit too light in color but the head is thick and white with some lacing. it smells a bit funky, like a Saison or something with Brett. The taste is a winner, solid and strong, bubbly and smooth. Overall, one of my favorites, simple and perfect.

Best by date: 5/28/13.

Body is a cloudy gold. A gentle pour into a tulip glass produces a half inch head with good retention and lacing.

Nice aroma of bready malt and citrus hops.

Good light bready malt flavor and grapefruit citrus hops. A little metallic yeast flavor in the background. Mild bitterness in the finish rounds the taste out.

Body is medium and carbonation is sufficient to give this a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Hops are tongue numbing strong.

A good hoppy pale ale that is quite drinkable.

I keep changing reviews on this beer. Seems better on tap (more so than normal beers)
