Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head and a few floaties in it. Nose is quite light and has a little bit of hoppiness to it. Taste has a light bit of bitterness up front, but has a strong malt backbone to it. Not a lot to this beer, but it’s fairly drinkable.

12 oz. botttle poured into a tumbler

A- Very hazy copper, with big chunks of yeast suspended in the body. Two finger white yellow head, retains well, and lots of lacing.

S- Citrus, sweet fruit, with a little pine.

T- A bitter, grapefruit-hoppiness, and a slight bready finish. Well balanced.

M- Thicker than I expected, but good. Bitter taste, but it doesn't overwhelmingly stick to the tongue.

O- Solid Pale Ale. Drink it! If you're not afraid of some yeasty floaters.
