Bottle to tulip. Dated January 30, drank April 16.
Pours a hazy orange color, with tons of carbonation and two fingers of soapy white head. Huge retention on the head, really some serious hang time. Great lacing. Aroma is floral and pine, taste follows with some citrus notes. Solid pale ale, right down the middle.

Suppose if you like IPA's it's not bad, but too much hoppy after taste for my preferences....

12 oz. bottle with January 13, 2015 date stamp. Poured into a nonic pint glass on March 2, 2015.

L: Color is deep gold with a one-finger head, great lacing, cloudy = chill haze?

S: Earthy citrus-forward hops, biscuit malts, citrus peel.

T: Orange, resinous earthy hops, grass, biscuit malt, grapefruit pith.

F: Pithy, dry finish, medium carbonation, good drinkability.

O: A solid, straightforward APA. Chatterbox offers a similar taste profile to other Short’s beers in the pale ale / IPA vein. Worth picking up for a change-of-pace beer.
