A - A medium-hard pour yields a hazy amber liquid with a finger of tight, frothy head. This falls to and island and ring over the course of a minute.

S - Lemon, pineapple, guava, biscuity malt. Really quite inviting.

T - Initial flavour is an uppercut of lemon and lime. Biscuity malt moves forward in the middle, before being pushed aside by leafy hops and a hint of tropical fruit. The hops linger for some time.

M - Light-medium body with soft carbonation at first. Once this subsides the mouthfeel takes on a more rounded and creamy guise.

D - Not too shabby. Probably a nice drop to have with food as the hops aren't too brash.

Purchased from the brewery on December 31. It was the only Pale Ale available that day.

Appearance - slightly hazy and golden-yellow with a moderately-sized and persistent white head.

This is an excellent pale ale - full of juicy, fruity hops flavours (pineapple, citrus, and mango) with a solid bitter backbone, and balancing, sweet caramel malts.
