Pours an orange amber color with a thick head with medium lacing. Aroma is very malty with a hint of sourness. Taste is crisp, citrus, grapefruit, slightly bitter along with a malty backbone. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and drinkability is high. Moderate carbonation.

Pours a hazy orange color with a large white head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of grapefruit and some grass and a touch of caramel malt sweetness. Taste is big on hops with good caramel malt sweetness that offsets the hop bitterness nicely. Medium body and great drinkability.

Can poured into a pint glass.

The appearance is a nice and clear burnt orange with a great head and wonderful lacing. The color is maybe slightly darker than other American pale ales but it is certainly not too dark. The smell is light and floral with a hint of citrus hoppiness. The flavor is a nice and clean bitterness with some maltiness in the middle and a dry and bitter finish. The MF is pretty typical with maybe slightly higher carbonation compared to other pale ales.

Overall this is a decent pale ale. At times I taste strange malty notes in there that remind me vaguely of Old Chub (which I don't like very much) and it kind of bother me, but usually I just taste great clean citrus and floral hops. The appearance is the best part of this beer.
