Enjoyed from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a bright amber with moderate white head and light lacing. Nose of citrus and pine hops with a light malt background. Flavors of hops to the front and aftertaste. Citrus hops meld nicely with sweet caramel malts with bittering hops in the background. Decent session pale ale.

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
