Superb clear orange body, minimal white head. Pine and spice, lemon hops. Flavor is assertively bitter, pine continues, with mild malt sweetness. Close is lingering. In the end, the result is more IPA than APA, in my opinion, a bracing glass of brew.

A - Pours a hazy golden orange with a two-finger creamy white head. Lots of sticky lacing.

S - Aromas of orange, grapefruit, and caramel malts.

T - The taste starts with a heavy amount of grapefruit. The grapefruit is balance by the caramel malts and some breadiness. The finish has a lingering bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy.

O - This is a nice Pale Ale. Pleasant and easy drinking.
