Poured into a pint glass.

The beer is clear with a light golden color and a thick two finger head. The aroma light with a notes of citrus and piney hops. It has a relatively light malt backbone with a pleasantly assertive hop presence (citrus/piney aroma and flavor with a good level of bitterness). The mouthfeel is good, and compliments the clean piney flavor nicely.

This beer is not the strongest, hoppiest, etc., but it is just a nice solid beer, especially as the weather warms up. Having one of these beers after a nice day outside in the sun can really hit the spot.

BOD 11/31/13. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber cast when decanted. Massive well formed head with superb lacing. Nice nose of citrus against a slightly sweet background. Very light medium body with average carbonation. The flavor profile is a mild grapefruit citrus focused bitterness against a biscuit background. A very slight spruce note is also present. The finish is clean with a lingering grapefruit flavored light bitterness. A good session ale.

I drank this right on the heels of Sixpoint Resin and Hi-Res (with pretzels in between of course). What a relief! I'm really enjoying this, my third Southern Tier pale ale (IPA and 2XIPA). Very, very balanced, floral hoppyness with enough bitter to add character but not to overwhelm. The perfect "session" beer!
