Had this on tap in a 20 oz "mug club" mug at Ciro's Tavern in Woonsocket, RI.

ABV 6.0% IBU – 38.0

A: Slightly darker golden color with a frothy white head that holds up.

S: Nice balance of malt, floral and hops.

T: Had a smooth mello taste the way a pale ale should be, very drinkable.

M: GREAT! Not some kind of watery brew, it makes you want to swallow slowly cuz it feels so good.

Traditional American pale ale full bodied but balanced to feature the spicy and floral flavor and aroma of the all American cascade hops.

On-tap 7/31/13 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright gold color, with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, caramelized malts and some citrus.

T: The taste starts with some citrus and caramel sweetness that is quickly followed by a strong but not over-powering hops presence. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean and dry.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, very good representation of style, this is a nice poundable beer to drink for a long time.
