A: Pours a hazy peach color with a thin white head. Nice retention leads to sticky thick lacing down the glass.
S: Light and fresh with grassy and citrus fruit notes. Floral aromas come and go. Biscuity malt notes emerge with a swirl of the glass.
T/M: Citrus fruit flavors of grapefruit, lemon zest, and orange rind. Floral flavors peak in the finish. Malt seems rather non-existent--toasted grain is subtle. Slight bitterness drags from the finish to the aftertaste. Dry but quite smooth with a body on the lighter side.
D: A fine session brew after a long day of skiing. Very light and refreshing. A hoppier pale ale and one that I had a couple of.
