12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 7/27/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, citrus peel/zest, pine, toasted bread, light honey/caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, citrus peel/zest, pine, toasted bread, light honey/caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, floral, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, citrus peel/zest, pine, toasted bread, light honey/caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a delicious American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful and never watery for the ABV. Classic Cascade hop profile on a nice bready malt backbone. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Poured into a Pilsner glass. Pretty much a clear golden color with a fine white head that gives really good retention and side glass lace. Good looking beer.
AROMA: Nothing too strong,moderate tones of floral pine hops and bread malts
TASTE: Clean, crisp, not complex. Decent clean, crisp refreshing taste.A little tart at the finish. Enjoyable.

Pours a clear golden color with 1/2 inch of head that dissipates. Pleasant smell; slight fruitiness. Taste is crisp with a clean finish. Not at all bad; quite refreshing but not overwhelming. Nice all around ale.

Bottling date of 07/21/16

Appearance - Pours crystal clear and golden in color. White, half finger head that doesn't hold for long before dying to a thin, broken layer of suds across the surface. Small spotting makes up the lace.

Smell - Leafy, floral hop aroma. Slight citrus. Bready undertone.

Taste - Follows the nose. Fairly balanced between the bready malt character and the floral, slightly citric hop notes. Faint honey sweetness. Finishes in much the same way it starts.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in body with sightly bitey carbonation. Crisp, refreshing finish. Very easy drinker.

Overall - A fair pale that drinks easy and has a pleasant, though somewhat safe, flavor profile. Something to drink when mowing the lawn or BBQing.
