Served in a tulip glass at the source. Pours a golden color with a small head that dispates quickly leaving laces around the glass. Has a citrusy smell that is also noticed in the taste. The taste is crisp and refreshing. It's a little in the dry side but full of flavor.

Pretty golden color, good 1/2" side white head on it, average lacing. Aroma was clean, didn't hit you over the head with belgian yeast esters and phenolics, there's plenty of malt and spice to pickup in near equal proportion.

Taste, again, very clean. Easy to drink. Carbonation and light malt bill makes for a refreshing drinking experience. Right amount of astringency and bitterness for style. The hopping is just right, appropriate for style, discernable, yet not west coast ipaish.

One of my more likeable belgian pales. Gets it right for my tastes, light body, refreshing carbonation levels, mild hops, mild yeast. Good San Diego weather pale inspired from halfway around the world.
