A: Pours a crystal clear medium to golden yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer, a couple of small slightly thicker patches, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of pale malts along with some floral/tropical hops and just a hint of spice.

T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with some light flavors of pale malts and just a hint of sweetness, maybe from honey. After that the hop flavors become apparent with notes of tropical, citrus, and floral hops. There is a very light amount of bitterness and hints of pepper/spice in the finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and crisp.

O: The beer is very refreshing and easy to drink. This would make a very nice session beer, especially during the warm weather.

12 oz bottle date 6/5/12 poured into a snifter

A- A clear golden color with a three finger white head.

S- Floral and spicy hops, pale malts, touch citrus/tropical fruits.

T- Pale malts, light tropical hops, a little bit of spicy hops, touch of sweet malts.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- A solid pale ale, tropical fruits really help this beer out. I have to say I had it on draft about a month ago and found it tastier on draft.

Pours a typical pale amber color with one finger thick head that creates a solid surface layer.

Nice floral and grainy aroma with hints of straw, cut grass, and some hints of lemon. Fairly nice!

Sipping reveals a burst of lemon peel, as well as some very grainy features of pale malt, definitely the barley, as well as straw and grass.

Very nice body that is crisp, light (as it should be), and solid for the style.

Overall, I really enjoy this as a session brew. It's not over the top hoppy and is very easy to drink. Enjoy!

This is one of my favorite Pale Ales. When poured into a glass it is Golden in color. Has a hint of sweetness in taste and in auroma. Also, has a citrus flavor taste to it, but not overpowering which makes me question if they used belgian yeast in the process. Not sure if that is even possible when brewing an APA. Very well carbonated, light white head foamy with good effervescene.
