Definitely encapsulates South County RI with the can and name. Taste is pretty standard light pale ale, but overall nothing I would search too hard for to get. Excited to see a RI brewery making pretty good beer (where I'm originally from), but it won't knock your socks off. A solid B+, but doesn't quite make into A territory.

On-tap at Grey Sail Brewery

Pours a pale straw with a slight golden sheen and a small white head leaving intermittent walls of lacing.

Aroma is dense with grain and herbal tones while still managing something subtle and inviting; I'm getting notes of hay, a sense of dank hop resin permeating throughout, delicate floral tones, and citrus rinds (but nothing terribly tropical); balanced and assertive.

Taste is dense, earthy, and dank; plenty of hop presence with a fleetinng, prickly bitterness along with some grapefruit peel, orange zest, and straw; straightforward and approachable hop profile without becoming too overwhelming.

Mouthfeel is crisp and slightly bitter, but cleans up by the finish; good sessionable quality; prickly but balanced medium body; crisp hops and an earthy quality that works to its advantage.

Interesting pale that has some great highs but the occasional inconsistency that hinders it from the upper tiers of the style. Nonetheless, a very enjoyable drink, especially for a sessionable beer on the danker side.

Poured into a small chalice: color is straw and quite hazy, head is brighter white with fine to small bubbles, head presents about 1/2 inch thick and lingers very well with some lacing.

Smell is very pleasant with aromatic hops with a blend of floral, grassy and light spicy hops.

Taste is also quite good - similar hop flavor to the aroma: floral, grassy, spicy, light citrus; malt is light but present as toast and biscuit.

Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, nearing ipa status.

Overall a very good EPA, just a bit lacking with malt depth in the flavor and presence but the hop blend is very good.

Light yellow in color with a hazy, slightly murky appearance. Poured with a tall, creamy, bright white foam with very good retention. Mellow lemon rind and floral hop aromas with malt aromas in tow. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation and a pleasant, mouth filling, creamy smooth feel. Ripe citrus flavors up front transition to floral and herbal followed by medium hop bitterness. Medium maltiness throughout. Floral and light spicy aromas with orange rind and ripe lemon notes follow along solid malt backbone. Finished semi-dryly with light beady malty notes and lingering, floral and light spicy hop bitterness. Balance tilted to the hoppy side. Fairly complex hop character with a marriage of citrus and floral/herbal aromas and flavors. Solid malty backbone provides balance and feel. Very tasty and finished more like an IPA with the bitter finish.

This is a very clean and crisp pale ale to the point of resembling a lager but with more flavor. Some fruity aromatics and a late bitterness makes it a nice accompaniment to any kind of food pairing.

12 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of piney hops, ripe fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of herbal hops, bready malt and some fruity notes. Finish is long and herbal. I can’t say I enjoyed the brew.

12 oz. can

Pours hazy foggy gold with a frothy white foam head. Smells like sweet nutty toasty bready honey caramel malt notes, orange marmalade, white grapefruit, lemon peel, apricot, with some peppery herbal spice and floral resinous earthy grassy pine. Tastes like nutty toasty bready honey caramel malts, citrus marmalade, apricot, grapefruit, tangerines, lemon, with peppery herbal spice and floral resinous earthy grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a real nice extra pale ale.
