This is a solid pale ale. Pours a deep gold with nice head, dissipated quickly. Had a brief intense floral aroma. Medium mouthfeel, very balanced and drinkable. Finishes a mixed malty sweet with a hoppy citrus tang. Would buy again.

Poured from the tap at the Blue & Grey Pub in Gettysburg, PA into a pint glass. This beer has a light golden color with a small thick white head. The aroma has a sweet malt and honey scent with a hint of bread. the flavor matches the aroma and is a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. A real good beer.

Poured from bottle to the old tulip. Three fingers of white, honeycomb head atop clear, golden liquid. Foam dies pretty quickly, no lacing. Aroma is subtle: citrusy and malty, and the taste follows right in line: subtle, citrusy, and, yep malty. Some floral notes, too. Not bad, just not memorable.

Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a stange-style glass.

Look: Hazy golden-yellow color with minimum bubbles and a thin, foamy white head. Head dissipated quickly.

Smell: Glad I got the nose onto this before the head went away, because once it did it was gone forever. Light floral hops and citrus notes, along with malts.

Taste: Hop bitterness hits you at the very start and very end of the taste. Overall, this is a maltier beer than it is hoppy. Slight citrus feel follows the nose. Eminently drinkable, however, and balanced. Though nothing really stands out as exceptional. Just solidly built.

Mouthfeel: Creamier than expected but overall medium bodied and light in carbonation.

Overall a good, drinkable, solid beer. But certainly not the best in the category I've ever had.

Nicely done. Not as citrusy as an IPA. Definitely a favorite "almost IPA"
