Bottle from Bert's
Slightly hazy medium gold color with lots of floaties in the glass and a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to a ring on top. Aromas of lemon and grapefruity citrus with bits of pine resin and a light bready crackery malt to back it up. The flavor is bready malt with a hint of sulfur and a fair amount of citrusy hop flavor. Light level of hop bitterness. Medium to light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a slick bubbly mouthfeel. Decent pale ale, certainly quaffable, but for the price I'd buy something different next time.

On tap in a standard pint glass.

A- Light yellow-gold color. The 1-finger white head tapers to a film leaving moderate lacing.
Lively carbonation. Clear.

S- Lemon forward citrus hop aroma. Piney. Tart. Floral.

T- Citrus hops framework with a malt foundation. Lots of good resinous hop flavors.

M- Medium body and good carbonation, tingly. Resinous. Hoppy citrus rind finish.

O- A bitter, hop forward pale ale at 5.5% abv is a year round winner.

Clear amber color with a thick head with medium retention.
Delicious aroma with strong predominant notes of mint. Hint of tangerines recently peeled and honey lemon.
Intense fruity and citric flavor with notes of grapefruit, peppery American yeast, earthy and herbal hops, pine, mint, biscuit and slightly toasted malts, tangerines and resin.
Light body with perfect carbonation and a slightly acid sensation.
Very good APA, tasty with good citrus complexity and still very easy to drink.

On tap at the Tipperary Pub.

Appearance: Very yellow golden color, crystal clear, decent white head that left some lacing

Smell: Very hoppy, herbal, floral, and piney hops

Taste: Again, very hoppy, herbal, floral, earthy, piney hops. There is a noticeable malt backbone, but enough to keep things light and balanced. Not too much bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, good carbonation.

Overall: This is a pretty solid APA, hoppier than standard for the style, but whats not to like about hops? Would gladly get again.
