superspak (3412) - Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of juicy citrus hops and moderate malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale ale style. All around good complexity and balance of juicy citrus hops and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Citrusy hop aroma. Nice golden color with good clarity. Balanced malt to hop which balances the boundaries of a hop. Light lingering bitterness and nicely carbonated for the flavor. West coast style.
