Big thanks to TongoRad who Ninja'ed me good!

Pours a murky, orangish tan, with half a finger of beige foam that reduces to cap and lasting ring pretty quickly

Interesting medium strength aroma featuring pear, light generic citrus, doughy sweet, and lightest hints of orange rind bitter.

Wow what a delicious, interesting taste . The pear note of the aroma is now a much lighter apple/pear cider note, not in a bad way of off flavor, but a really nice hint that mixes well. Main players in this full flavored Pale Ale are general citrus notes, a doughy/grainy sweet, very light mosaic like hop funk, and some interesting herbal and pith bitterness that sneaks into the sip and ends it fairly dry.

Full bodied for style, yet a light/med. viscosity that's a touch watery. High carbonation which adds a touch too much carbonic, refreshing, with a clean lasting finish. A bit softer feel and lower carb. would improve this still very good mouthfeel. Least excellent feature.

Very interesting, very delicious pale ale. Considering how many of this style exist, it is unusual that it really doesn't remind of any others. High recommendation.
