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.

On tap, poured into a shaker. Pleasant, mild pine aromas with a subtle lemon citrus greet the nose, followed by undertones that are lightly earthy and yeast. It pours a clear, brilliant pale with gelatin-dense white foam head that has an above average retention and lacing. It's maybe a hint more sweet than bitter, but overall, it's a balanced medium bittersweet. The texture is a bit watery with a light cream carbonation and a medium light body with flavors of lemon and mineral water that finishes with a citrus zest and a bit of pine. The aftertaste is clean pine spice. Generally, not too dissimilar from Half Acre's Daisy Cutter, maybe a bit sweeter, not as dry, and a lighter body.
