An amber color, with an quater inch off white color head forms, that laces down slowly an d leaves a thin layer on top. The scent starts with a quick hit of malt, that is soon overtaken by a grassy, citrusy aroma, that dominates till the end. The malt comes out at the start of the flavor, the gradual growth of a citrus bitterness reaches its peak at the end. A slightly watery mouthfeel at the start, that blends itself to a more medium bodied feel. There is the slight foaming sensation on the palate, at the end, from the carboantion. A decent pale ale, the aroma was good, I was expecting more from the flavor, and the mouthfeel was a bit of a let down.

On tap: Reddish orange with a good sized head that hangs around throughout and has great lacing. Smells of pine and malt. Taste follows the smell. Everything really comes together here and this is a really good pale ale.

This is a good American pale ale. Not as flavorful as the best ones out major hops presence here. But it is an enjoyable beer.

12 oz. bottle into a pint glass

A - Moderate pour produces a 1 finger head in height that is off white with a slight orange tint in color. The head is a thick froth and dissipates very slowly. The beer itself is slightly hazy and bright amber in color with moderate carbonation based on a medium amount of bubbles rising quickly toward the surface. 4/5

S - Very sweet aroma with grapefruit, mango, papaya, and a bit of pineapple. Really a very citrusy aroma with a bit caramel backing up the citrus and light malt reminiscent of white bread acting as an undertone base. 4/5

T - Lightly sweet at the start with just a hint of caramel and buttered white bread. A bit of a light cracker note too. The hops really start to come in right in the middle with grapefruit playing the starring role and being backed up by mango, papaya, and pineapple. Light hint of green apple along with the grapefruit. Bitterness is really not all the harsh but it does linger lightly on the palate after swallowing. 4/5

M - Light carbonation burn on the outset which transitions to a bit of a creaminess which is unexpected. Medium bodied. Very little drying but drying does linger somewhat. 3.75/5

O - Well balanced beer between sweet and bitter with the hops playing the starring role, providing both sweet citrus and bitter notes. Creamy mouthfeel that comes through at times is a bit odd but not unpleasant. 4/5

A- Dark caramel color with lots of carbonation. 1.5 finger cream head with a good amount of lacing.

S- Grapefruit! With other sweet fruits and a light pine touch.

T- The grapefruit/hoppiness comes in at the start with very little bitterness and continues through with a doughy finish.

M- Starts off pretty light but grows exponentially, you get the sweetness of the grapefruit long after your last drink.

O- An incredible brew in my books and an extremely easy drink. I highly recommend it.
