From the half liter bottle, it pours a hazy light amber with a generous, mostly fluffy, head. Smell is lemony and earthy. A bit of hops and grain in the mouth. Feels pleasant and bubbly.

Have have gotten a skunked one. Appearance is straw colored, great fluffy white head. A touch of lacing. Nose is some hops, marijuana (the skunked element). Mild but unpleasant. Flavor is similar. Hops, light skunk. A touch of citrus in the nose when it heats up. Not much going on at all. Sort of biting earthy hops at the back. Quite dry - not fruity in the least. High carbonation. This bottle's not good - hopefully I get to try it again some time.

16.9oz bottle poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a hazy pale yellow with a 2-finger foamy and creamy white head that has good retention and leaves some nice lacing behind

S- grassy and earthy hops, crackery toasted malt, a hint of lemon

T- lemon grass and citrus hop up front with a toasted grainy malt background, slightly spicy yeast adds some earthy notes, dry finish with some fruity lingers

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a murky finish

O- easy drinking and flavorful

This is an excellent pale ale but I think I liked MO a little bit more. This one is similar but with more of a slightly spicy/earthy presence where MO was more fruity/juicy. Still my type of pale ale. nb
