Pours a clear copper color. 3/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, pale malt, slight piney hops, hint of honey, yeast, and alcohol. Fist the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with a high carbonation level. There is also a slight metallic feel. Tastes of sweet malt, pale malt, slight piney hops, hint of honey, yeast, hint of wheat, and alcohol. Overall, good appearance, too carbonated, metallic notes are a detriment, and average otherwise.

Poured from bottle to IPA glass. Near-clear and glows golden. Tons of head that melts like ice cream in a float, and lots of active carbonation. Aroma is caramel malts, floral hops, honey, pine resin. Taste is floral and grapefruit forward with a big ol malt backbone. Tons of lacing, great head retention.

12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. No date on bottle- guess the machine missed it, but recent release.

Pours a cloudy light amber, with a two inch head on a harder pour, lots of foamy lacing. Smell is grapefruit and orange hops, pine, light malt, spices- maybe coriander, some yeast, bready. The pine is a little more prevalent in the taste, followed by grapefruit and orange hops, malt, some yeast, light spices. A good amount of bitterness throughout, more at the finish. Smooth, dry, somewhat refreshing, well carbonated, the bitterness lingers.

This batch seems above the overall average, so far. Really nice bitterness, a solid, fuller body for the style. Liked it. Look forward to the next batch.

Pours a hazy golden, and forms a 2-inch, off-white, pillowy head, that persists and persists! The initial nose did not yield much beyond citrus, some pine, caramel and malt. The body is medium, and carbonation light to moderate. Rather bitter on the palate for an American Pale Ale. It seems to lean more towards an American IPA. Delicious, piney, bitter, refreshing, with a mild backdrop of malt, biscuits, and grapefruit pith. Well-developed Belgian lace does form. I cannot decide if it is moreish or quenching. On the other hand, I would not hesitate to try it again.
