Served in a glass at the 4th Cellar Party at Bear Republic brewery. From notes. Reviewed 30 September 2012.

A: Clean copper, bright.

S: Vague hops.

T: Dry, astringent hops with a splash of citrus peel and hefty Simcoe. Light finish. Light bodied, but balanced out nicely by the malt.

M: Well-carbonated. Fizzy-full in the mouth.

O: Interesting and worthy. A very nice pale ale.
