Great light crisp body, little bit of vienna like malt comes through, biscuity and dry with an outstanding hop character that shines through, super citric and fruity with just enough bitterness to balance. American pale ale at it's best

Pours a deep clear gold with a clingy white head. As it settles, is leaves sticky lacing. Nice aroma, mild, but with discernible malt and citrus hops. Earthy hops are dominant, with some backing effort from the citrus hops and the malt backbone. The body is lighter with a little bite from the hops. A really good American Pale Ale.
