Thanks to Pellinore1 for sending me this one!

Pours a clear honey orange with a 1 inch puffy tan head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. Thin sticky rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of tons of herbal and citrus zest. Taste is of sweet malt up front with a mainly citrus zest hop finish. Mild bitterness lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good pale ale with a nice kick of hops in the smell and taste.
