12-31-16 - On tap at Rattle n Hum West in NYC. 12 oz pour with hazy straw color and thin white head. Great aroma and citrusy punch with the first taste. Pretty tasty and refreshing.

Cloudy, providing white hue to the orange gold color. Moderate head which provides chunky spots on the glass.

This smells like a a freshly opened hop pellet bag..

Like a grapefruit cocktail, this starts with a bitter, very lightly sour, wet hop flavor. This lasts throughout the tasting. Full bodied with a muted carbonation. The pale malted grain provide a base but little in the way of the taste. A hop lovers beer.

On-draught @ Torst in Brooklyn. Cost was $12 for 14oz.

Has that yogurty taste I'm increasingly coming to associate with new world hop varietals. Pale malts even her out. Floral notes. Some vague fruitiness (with a slight citrusy bend). No resins as one might expect from Amarillo (my favourite hop).

TEXTURE could be called standard. Smooth, wet, well-carbonated, medium-bodied, tangy.

Overall, it's a competent balanced pale ale and I'd be thrilled to order a second if not for its pricing. Worth trying, but not dazzlingly delish.

B- / WORTHY
