On tap, poured with minimal head, a golden hue. This beer is very creamy, with light spicy/piney/earth bitterness to cut the soft malt sweetness. It has just a terrific mouthfeel and is a pale ale that I would be happy to drink all of the time. It is just a refreshing beer.

The malt is light and almost absent but the hops are deliciously lemon, citrusy and slightly piney. This is a very light beer but incredibly drinkable with a soft yet bubbly feel.

As good as American Pale Ale can be, imo. Never fail to order if it is on tap.

The beer has a pale yellow color. The aroma is light with tropical fruits. The taste is light tropical tropical fruits with no malt. Really easy drinking, not very bitter. Not very explosive in taste or aroma.

Very drinkable pale ale that still has a distinct hop note.
