A - Three fingers of off-white head, somewhat large bubbles, over a cloudy pale amber body. The head recedes fairly quickly but leaves nice lacing.

S - Lots of citrus and pine.

T - Nice big citrus, pine and floral hops as the smell suggests, followed by toasted malts.

M - Medium body with moderate/high carbonation. Somewhat thin, this starts to border on soda-like.

O - Not a bad pale ale, very drinkable. I'd love to get this in cans but it's not bold enough for me to buy in bombers. The flavors are good but not so complex and the mouthfeel is a bit thin and soda-like. If I see this in cans I'd definitely pick it up again.

Bomber says "extremely FRESH craft brewed," which is kind of moot considering there's no bottling date, but eh. I'm trying not to jump on that bandwagon.
Poured from bomber into DFH spiegelau IPA glass. Translucent golden-orange with a huge pillowy white head that breaks after a bit, leaving spotty chunky lacing and a thick puck of foam in the center with looser foam around the sides, and the whole lot slowly descends into the beer, leaving more lacing as it does.
Smells of nutty malt, with notes of grassy/earthy hops. Relatively simple smell, hopefully the taste delivers more.
Taste does in fact deliver more. Starts out with that same nutty malt, lovely complexity between the nuttiness and the clear malt. Hop flavor is subtle; grassy hops with slight citrus rind and earthy bitterness.
Mouthfeel is smooth and medium-thin.
Overall, I enjoy the complexity of the malt in this pale ale, but the hop flavor could be a bit more complex and present.
