Pours a bright a slightly hazed sunflower golden yellow with a pillowy finger of white foam.

Noticeable citrusy aroma of grapefruit and lime and a very subtle biscuity toasted malt aroma.

Taste matches aroma for the most part, biscuity toasted malt, but the citrusy notes are much more bitter and difficult to distinguish. Noticeable bitter hop profile of citrus zest and herbal notes.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, bitter, crisp.

Overall, nothing to write home about, but a solid and easy drinking pale ale.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the brewpub.

Another stop on the Second Annual Bachelor Party Free-For-All! This one pours a clear bronze topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises earthy hops, grass, and caramel. With this first glance, it's all simple and very straightforward. Nice. The taste brings in more of the same, though the caramel is now slightly subservient to the earthy, grassy, floral hops. The body is a very light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a nice, simple pale ale, something you surprisingly don't see very often anymore. Its balance and earthy hops are a nice departure from what seems to be the more mainstream method of over-hopping things with citrus-rind cones.
