Served in a pub glass at the Stoneface Brewing Company.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, golden brass color with a slightly orange tinge, a white head with modest retention and soapy lacing.
S: Aromas of orange and lemon citrus predominate. Very little maltiness evident in the bouquet.
T: Citrus flavor largely lemony with strong resin and pine components. Relatively low bitterness, but enough to cause a refreshing, crisp finish.
M: Light bodied with low to mod carbonation.
O: A refreshing and enjoyable APA. Certainly a winner for summer consumption.

Nice brew. I would absolutely buy this again. I'd keep my friends if I served this to them.

12 oz. can dated 03-27-17

Pours foggy hazy gold with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like peach, apricot, mango, orange citrus, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, blueberry, passionfruit, lychee, toasted bready caramelized malts, with dank resinous floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Taste follows with peach, apricot, mango, orange citrus, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, blueberry, passionfruit, lychee, toasted bready caramelized malts, with dank resinous bitter floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy and crisp with moderate carbonation. Overall a real nice pale ale.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Pale lemon yellow, with good frothy easy bright white two finger head. Thick amounts of lacing and ring clumps. Slightly hints to haze but with good clarity and carbonation.

Nice hop forward aromas. Pine and dank earth. Slight apricot and good stone fruit quality with minimal sweetness. Clean and nearly crisp body too.

A bit minimal wet palate, but with a good complex hop flavor. Mid palate with crispy malt and pine and fruit hop simplicity. Tangy aftertaste with large grapefruit zest in a light mouthfeel.

Real solid flavorful hop forward pale ale.

Clear honey colored with a big pillowy looking head, although it was an aggressive pour. Lots of lacing as the head recedes. Im digging it.

Aroma: notes of peach and grapefruit, light citrus, some floral notes.

Taste: almost no bitterness, a faint sweetness to it, but not malty. Candi sugar? Low hop finish. Drinkable.

Feel: soft, great mouthfeel, not pillowy but good.

Pale golden honey in color with a hefty merengue head. Pleasant fruity hop armoma. Malts and hop very pleasing to the senses. Floral And grapefuit pith. Creamy texture yet just enough effervescence to scrub the tongue clean. Light bitterness lingers at the back of the throat. Fruit semi-sweetness in the front. Everything is to love here. I'm really digging the creaminess as the flavors last a long time between drinks. Probably spectacular on tap. Fantastic APA!

Pours a partly clear yellow with a nice head. Nothing very strong in the smell. Taste is smooth with some bitterness and a little bit of citrus. Good mouthfeel, full bodied with moderate carbonation.
