12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/11/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep gold color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, light caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balances citrus/floral hops and pale/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, floral, grass, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant pale ale style. Good balance of citrus/grassy hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
