I like this beer. Poured from 12 oz bottle into Sam Adams perfect pint glass with nucleator in bottom.

A - A nice deep gold-orange color with an off white head that has decent retention.

T - If you like tinge of orange (which I do, this is a great Pale Ale with happiness that mates well with the orange.

M - Good mouth feel, a little full at first, but then goes down nicely.

S - Nice mix of hops and orange, with malts in the way back

O - 4. I was surprised by this one with my first bottle, and its been consistent on each since.

A- Pale golden pour from the 12oz bottle to a pint glass. Thick and creamy white crown makes it over two fingers with decent retention. Medium-sized ring drops a few large lacing webs.

S- Pale cracked barley opens up to bitter oranges and general zesty and floral notes. Not all that much going on.

T- Cereal grains, bready and biscuit malt notes come in just behind the orange citrus tones. Grapefruit comes to mind as well as herbal and floral hops. Peely bitters.

MF- Towards the light side but definitely not thin or watery. Texture is between fizzy and frothy from the zesty high bubble level. Citrus bitterness throughout.

Standard base grains with a fair amount of orange flavor and bitterness. A summer refresher but nothing I would go for again.
