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.
