L - massive, stubborn head atop a near-transparent yellow body.

S - herb, oranges, caramel.

T - follows the nose. Low bitterness. Low sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium body and carb.

O - a perfectly average ipa. Not overly dank. It’s an easy drinker.

Pours a clear medium gold producing 1 inch of very short-lived, off-white head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is pale, sweet malt with floral and citrus hops. Taste is sweet with light pale malt, mild grapefruit/citrus hops, floral, fruit hints of apple and grape with a nice bitterness. Finishes dry.

Overall great beer. I tend to like more hops, but this one is solid.

Grassy hop aroma. Smooth for an “extra”. Excellent overall beer.

Oh man, what some flavor this American Pale ale has! This beer is bursting with excitement! The presentation is nice and simple. The artwork is a much welcomed down to earth design. Better than the current trend of psychedelic art you see with other craft beer brands. Smell is wonderful and pleasant, with aromas of bright tropical fruit with a lot of floral hints. You get a underlying toast and some depth. The taste is much the same as the aroma. Very hop forward with bright citrus notes. Taste is guava, and apricot fruit with a floral kiss. The malt lies underneath the fruitiness of this ale. The feel is nothing out of the ordinary. The hop residue stays with you for a while. I highly recommend you give this beer a try. It is absolutely wonderful and well put together. A fantastic brew!
