Pours a golden orange with a foamy caramel white head. Smells of sweet citrus, pine, and some malt and mild spice. Flavor is sweet citrus and malt with some bitter hops and biscuit malt notes. Solid but nothing exceptional.

Wonderful hop aroma and taste of grapefruit with just enough citrus to make it flavorful and not a hop bomb. Crisp and refreshing on the palate overall a very good beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is so juicy. Plenty of nice hop character but only enough bitterness to stop it being sweet. This is a very nice session ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear pale amber with a short white head. Surprisingly enjoyable nose, though it is basic, the Cascade orange juiciness plays with some English-like hop moss / mustiness, which is confusing to be given the inclusion of Citra (and thankfully this isn’t another Citra shallot / pee / pineapple bomb). Decent caramel / stroopwafel cookie malt core, a bit too sugary but not unpleasant. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Good acid, good balance. Crusty grains and stale bread crust with some green vegetal hops and stewed tea leaves (there’s the Centennial) once it warms. Becomes more bitter and rough with time and warmth, but overall it’s a pretty solid American pale.
