Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a pure white head. Not a lot of retention or lacing.

The aroma is a nice balance of sweet and bitter, with the piney notes coming forward at first, followed by some nice tropical fruit aromas. Lots of citrus here as well. On the back end there's some floral notes I can't quite put my finger on, but they are very pleasant. Very surprised at how much aroma is packed into this beer.

The flavor is incredibly well-balanced. I get lots of citrus notes up front; orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. Then come the grassy notes to add some bitterness. The taste ends with more citrus and just the slightest hint of bready malt.

The feel is medium-light bodied with relatively low carbonation. Very crisp and a bit dry.

Overall, a fantastic pale ale that caught me by surprise. When I sampled it at the brewery I was nearly blown away and I just had to get a growler. It's such a well-balanced beer that hits all the right notes that I want in a pale ale. The malt character could be a bit more prominent but everything else is extremely well done. Could drink this all day.
