22 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus peel/herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, pine, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a very nice American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. This had a lot of nice fresh feeling whole hop notes going on. A very enjoyable offering.
