16oz globe glass.
Pours clear, golden. Very little head, no lacing. Strong malt build, very little aroma of anything else. Tastes of strong malts, and very little hops. Creamy MF, with no bite, but has a long mild bitter aftertaste.
This was not one of my highlight beers. Trying to remain objective, I found it bland and in need of something to kick it up a notch or two.

Good, but not as good as the Freckle Belly.

Naked Pig has a thick, spongy, slightly off-white head, a mostly clear, orange appearance, with a bit of glass lacing globs. Aroma is faint, but white bread and citrus can be detected, with a strong inhalation. Taste is of mellow bitterness, citrus (tangerine?), white bread, white bread crust, and mild caramel. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Naked Pig finishes medium dry. Similar to Audible Ale, in flavor, but with a more robust alcohol aspect.

One of the best Pale Ales out there. Excellent malt backbone and crisp hoppy finish. Great balance.

Best by 7/24/17

A: Pours a clear gold with a tall frothy white head. Good head retention and soapy lacing.

S: Grassy and some tropical fruits. Very sweet grains.

T: Whew, very odd. Huge hop bitterness but very little actual hop flavor. Just indistinct bitterness. Somewhat sweet grainy malt. Literally cringing at the weird flavorless bitterness.

M: Light bodied, very bitter.

O: I poured it out after three sips.

It pours a light yellow hazy color and the smell is of a slight hippy note. Taste is malty to start off then a bit of bitterness at the end. Mouthful is medium and we'll balanced. Overall better than I expected.
