First had: on tap at Peg's, Gulfport, FL

Extremely tasty pale ale here, verging on IPA territory, and reminiscent of the fresh hoppy goodness you'd expect from Hill Farmstead. Pale banana yellow liquid, cloudy, loaded with floaties, with a nice white head that receded to a thick ringlet and left lots of lacing on the glass. Burst of fresh hops in the nose, lemon zest and fresh-cut grass. Taste was similarly crisp and hoppy, lemon, grass, with a biscuity pale malt base that took a back seat, but was still present, blending with the hops mid- to end-palate to create a somewhat floral effect. Crisp, medium body, refreshing and full of flavor. Very nice overall.

A: it came a hazy golden straw color. It was well carbonated and had a foamy white head.

S: this beer had a gloriously citrus aroma. There were some malty sweetness in there as well.

T: I like this beer. It starts with a pronounced citrus flavor and malty sweetness, something like grapefruit or tangerine. Then comes a mellow bitterness that ramps up slightly toward the finish. The flavors are not complex by they do them well.

MF: this is a light bodied beer with a mellow bitter aftertaste that doesn't stick around too long.

O: overall, very good beer, I could sit around and drink several of these and feel really good about it. I love the pronounced citrus flavor in this beer.

Had this on-tap at the awesome brewpub.

Served in a pint glass.

A: Poured a fairly cloudy, gold color, with a sticky white head to boot.

S: Smelled like it was going to be crisp and hoppy. Totally fresh and not overbearing in any way.

T: And it definitely WAS crisp and hoppy. Tons of grapefruit and whole leaf astringency without too much of a West Coast flair.

M: The carbonation was great and perfect for this style. Moderate lacing.

O: This was truly a great APA and ranks up there with the big dogs.

Very fruity nose and taste. For under 5%ABV, this has a balanced feel between the hops and the rest of the beer. Poured out of a crowler fresh from the brewery, a very nice looking beer.
