A light pour from a 16-oz. can produces a finger sized rocky white head with average retention and spotty lace, a cap last on. Lots of sediment.
Turbid pale orange color, appears yellow orange in front of light.
Lemony citrus, pale malt and yeast with mixed piney and dank hops greets the nose.
Taste is mildly bitter and neutral(sweet/dry) and starts with bready grain and hops. The middle features pale malt and light citrus fruit. The finish is semi-dry, bitterness increases and faint alcohol is detected. Spicy hops linger a while.
Medium body with extra carbonation, smooth and buttery.
A good case for a New England Pale Ale category, quite quaffable.

A nice clear golden color with a thick white head and nice lacing. Nice fruity hop flavor but still has a malt background. A pretty good balance. A good bitterness follows. A pleasure to find a good refreshing Pale Ale that isn't trying to be an IPA.

Pint on draft at Hella Good.

Appearance: Wow, this is Hazy. It’s the color of an apricot. Very thick with haze and sediment. I wonder if this is the bottom of the keg or something. Minimal white head. Much lace.

Aroma: Clean nose with some lemon, zest and citrus.

Taste: Lemon, grapefruit. Bitter finish. Straddles that APA/IPA border. I hope this isn’t boozy because ABV is unlisted and it’s a fairly swift drink. Bitterness increases with warmth. Pine-like aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable. Maybe a tiny bit heavy for an APA.

Overall: A curious beer with a strange presentation that I’m not sure was intentional. Good stuff though. Nice sorta-IPA vibe.
