Good all around pale ale, but a bit too buttery for me. Cheers!

Small and unassuming ale with a big bite. Clear and dark golden, light hop aroma. Taste brings on the hops, finish is decidely astringent, piney. Can't wait for these guys to start production in Idaho.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a honey, caramel, clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of grayish tan, fizzy head, which comes to rest quickly, A few bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal wet spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.50)

Smelled a pleasant whiff of Citra, sharp grapefruit, lemon zest, some tropical rind, some spicy Chinook, caramel and sugary floral. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted wasn’t as pleasant as the nose, getting more of a veggie feel. Also Citra, lemon, lime, faint grapefruit, tangerine, Citra rind, caramel and bitter Chinook. (Taste - 3.50)

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This was an OK pale ale, about what I was expecting. Decent for the style and good for the summer. (Overall - 3.75)

Definitely a hoppy, citrusy ale ... pushing toward IPA, in my book. Great tasting. I would go for this again. And oddly what stood out for me (mostly I care most about taste) was that this was just a great-looking brew ... my glass was a pretty pale blonde-orange shade with lovely white foam.
