on-tap @ Belmont Station.
from notes.

Pale golden with a foamy, white head that clings to the glass.

Big, fruity hop notes in the nose. The fruit notes are there as well as a big dose of fresh pine needles.

Medium body, fizzy foamy carbonation.

A very nice pale ale. The pine needle notes were a pleasant surprise, as I didn't pick much up in the nose. I was also very pleasantly surprised with the low ABV for such a aromatic and flavorful beer.

On tap at 2 Bros. in Salem. Pours a semi hazy light golden color with a 1/4 inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is fruity, with lots of tropical fruits. Pineapple is the one I'm picking up on the most. The taste is juicy tropical fruits upfront with a lightly bitter flavor. A bit floral but this one if mostly tropical fruits and citrus hops. Virtually no alcohol flavor, which isn't surprising considering the abv. Insanely drinkable. Light and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, pretty good low abv Pale Ale with alot of hop flavor.
