12 fl oz can poured into HF wine stem.

Appearance: Pale yellow bodied beer with large 2 fingers of bone white head. Head has good staying power and lasts longer than your average hoppy beer head. Moderate lacing left on the side of the glass.

Smell: Citrus forward nose; grapefruit and oranges mostly. Hints of grass, watermelon rind, light floral and fruity note. Bready malts that are barely there.

Taste: Tons of pink grapefruit and a light orange sweetness. Fruity and grassy hops also seem to compliment the big citrus profile. Little bit of resin and hop oil in the finish. Mild bitterness, the beer really is loaded with hop flavor without a lot of bitterness. Mild biscuit and bready malts; the malt profile adds a light backbone for all the hop flavor to come forward in all its glory.

Mouthfeel: light body with moderate carbonation. The beer is an outstandingly drinkable beer and carbonation is bordering on creamy.

Overall: This is a really nice American Pale Ale that gives Zombie Dust a run for the money. Very well done APA from a not so well know Pennsylvania brewery.

considering the very sessionable ABV of this 5% pale ale it reminds me of the best IPA'S i have had (or even doubles). To me it is much better than the the session ales coming out now and is not even called one. This is a great go to beer now that they are canning it.

Each time I visit St. Boniface, I grab a growler of this pale ale. It's a beautiful color that leans toward the orange area of the color wheel, with a 2 finger white head that laces nicely.

A little lighter pale ale flavor than a SNPA but reminiscent nonetheless , the fruity aroma pleases the nose and satisfies as it rolls in your mouth and down your throat. Just enough of an alcohol bite.

This is one of my favorite beers when I'm in the mood for a refreshing pale ale. When I go to parties, this is a staple, and the masses always rave about it. Recommended.

Growler fill from the brewery, poured into a tulip glass.

A- a cloudy orange with hints of amber in it. Bright white head that laces nicely.

S- Big tangerine and peach notes, hint of pink grapefruit.

T- Nice hit of bitterness up front, some bready malt is there, very english, the citra hops kick in hard, tangerine, peach, pink grapefruit abound. Bitterness lasts pretty long after the sip. Delicious!

M- Moderately dry, light to medium in body.

O- A big time upgrade on regular ol' Paideia!
