Bought a can at The Beer Shop in East Longmeadow, MA. The beer has a murky dark yellow appearance with not much of a head but some patchy lacing. Really good earthy hops aromas that are not too overpowering; really nice to the senses. Taste follows the nose with a sweet and sharp citrus orange taste. Very drinkable and approachable body. Overall, this is an excellent pale ale with great aromas, taste, and body.

On tap.
Lots of hop aroma and flavor and nice easy drinking. Smell and taste of tropical mango and stone fruit and grass, with a creamy-smooth malt base.
Very tasty, not very bitter.

Four pack copped from Bottle King in Morris Plains. Pours a golden effervescent hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

Grapefruit, unripened tropical fruit, crackery malt, resin, lemon, blueberry.

Up there with the most balanced, smoothest drinking Pale Ales I've had the chance to try.

What a well made beer.
