12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/15/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/piney/earthy hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, cracker, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/piney/earthy hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and grainy/sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a very nice session pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/piney/earthy hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and quite refreshing to drink; despite the increasingly bitter/drying finish. Fairly aggressive, but not overwhelming. Very dank, earthy, fresh, and grassy feeling on hops; with a nice solid pale malt backing, and very flavorful for the low ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
