An industry pint at the Oliver Square location.

This beer appears a clear, somewhat glassy medium bronzed amber hue, with one finger of thin foamy, kind of soapy dirty white head, which leaves a decent array of dripping paint lace around the glass as things drop away.

It smells of orange and grapefruit flesh, a bit of leafy pine needle, bready, a tad doughy caramel malt, and and further bit of lemony booze. The taste is a peppy grapefruit, lemon, and orange rind fruitiness, gritty grainy, almost dry bready malt, and more leafy, soft forest floor hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly restrained, and mostly just supportive, the body on the lee side of medium weight, and generally smooth, the hops doing well to keep out of this one. It finishes barely off-dry, the malt petering out, which lets the lingering bitterness run a few quick laps around your palate.

A rather decent APA, good and hoppy, and more than a bit reminiscent of the other local star of the style - Full Moon Pale Ale. Maybe the boys in the Foothills industrial park took a page or two from Alley Kat's playbook, I dunno. Whatever it is, it works - worthy of a session, IMHO.
