Growler, poured into a tulip

A- pours a clear deep amber color with some reddish hue, small fizzy and creamy white head, eventually reduces completely, leaving a few patches of lace behind

S- fresh citrusy hop aroma up front with an emphasis on grapefruit & orange zest. Fresh grassy & leafy hop notes as well. Caramel malt aroma rounds it out with just a hint of bready notes at the end

T- citrus hoppy notes come through first with lots of orange peel and grapefruit juice, followed by fresh leafy & resinous hop flavors. Slight caramel melt sweetness kicks in mid-palate before finishing slightly bready with more citrusy hop linger

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp and foamy finish

O- one of the best pale ales out there. The citrus hops and caramel malt are so well balanced, that it remains incredibly drinkable, while still being packed with flavor
