Really liked the Pitcher Perfect. Had at the brewery off the Tap. It has Nugget, Mosaic and Eldorado hops. The mosaic coupled with the dry hopping gives it an (L)amazing (cloudiness) (T) Earthy and resiness and the hop profile is very pronounced with the mosaic coming through strongly with citrus.
1t 5.7ABV, this would qualify as an amazing Session IPA for me :)

Draught pour at Davis Beer Shoppe during GF/Alpine tap takover, into a shaker pint. Pours slightly hazy golden with finger of low-medium density white head with limited retention and left mixed windshield/ringed lacing. Nose is subtle, lots of melon, some citrus, tiny bit of breadiness. Taste is quite nice but inverts the nose a bit, citrus forward with melon in tow. Finishes with a tiny bit of bitterness, some lingering astringency, and a bit tingly on the tongue. It's fairly thin on body even by pale ale standards and some tingling on the tongue from carbonation. Nice pale, but there's far better out there.

Been waiting to try this and finally got the chance tonight. I’m expecting this to be slightly overrated by the mass as usual. Let’s see what I think.

Poured a yellow, golden, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of offwhite, frothy head when I got it. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Great looking foamy, layered lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention on the top. (Sight - 4.00)

Lots of hops on the nose. Specifically got Mosaic, Dorado (only know this because I saw a brief description and recently had some in Ballast Point’s Watermelon Dorado and I could taste it) and Amarillo. Definitely dry-hopped. Also some Citra rind. Really dies out at the end. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste as much better than the nose. Got Mosaic hops, orange pulp, some grapefruit, Amarillo (even though there appears to be none), dry-hopped again, nectarine, lemon zest, orange peel and tangerine. (Taste - 4.00)

Light body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Long, citrusy finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This was a pretty good pale ale overall. Not excellent, but good. (Overall – 3.75)
