This is truly a great beer. It poured with an incredibly fluffy white head that became cavernous as I started drinking. Heavy lacing all the way till the last sip. It pours a really nice amber color and smells of wonderful hops. Orange, grapefruit, and a lemon brightness is there as well as some earthier fruits, like melon. It tastes like a wonderful hop and fruit bomb. Lots of citrus and a fruity but clean finish. One of the better APAs I've enjoyed.

This Pale Ale reminds me of most of the hoppy ales you get at your local liquor store. The appearance is a thicker, brown/orange color. The smell is refreshing and hoppy, the taste is good, nothing exceptional but a great hoppy beer. The mouthfeel is smooth, refreshing, and finishes great. If you are looking for a good, hoppy beer this will fill the need.

Malty, but not a malty mess.

Pours copper. Short, foamy, off Whitehead that lasts shortly with light lacing.

Smells Citrus, Light Carmel, Light toasted malts, and lightly earthy.

Taste bready malt, citrus peel, light toasted malts, light Pine and earthiness. Finishes dry with citrus peel and light pepper linger. Medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.
