Taster on tap at HopCat in East Lansing. Mostly clear golden color. Thin white head, good spread of thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth crisp lighter carbonation. Good bigger spicy citrusy hop profile, light biscuity malt. Bigger bitter taste. Light hint of zesty sweetness. Awesome hoppy assertive pale ale.

Yellow gold color out of the bottle with a huge, frothy white head. Very effervescent beer. Light spritzy, lemony nose. Lemon peel and some bitter orange peel hop flavors with some light toast underneath. Long red grapefruit peel finish. Okay pale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden yellow with a creamy taupe head. Aroma is grainy and pale with corn and dusty malts. Taste comes through better than aroma with citrus and floral hops along with pale malt and low bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours an almost clear golden amber with a white head. Orange and grapefruit citrus hop aromas, hinting at lemon and pine. Flavor lean more toward biscuity malts, with grassy hops, hinting at pine and citrus, decent hop bitterness. Smells nice, but a little too restrained on the flavor.

The scent is of yeast, malts, hops, & citrus fruit. I taste the flavor. The malts are very well identified. The hops show up nicely but do not add much bitterness to this drink. Overall it is a nice balanced pale ale that is also refreshing due to the lack of intensity in the flavor.

Pours golden with fluffy head. Nice lacing going on. Smell is very pleasant with sweet citrus hop. The taste was disappointing. All the flavors are there, but this was a bit watered down in flavor. Could use a little more hop bite. Ok offering from ABC, and I think they could improve on this in the future with a bit more flavor.

Not a fan of heavy hops, but this is good. Pours a hazy orange with a strong white head and very heavy lacing, to the point of sheeting the side of the glass. Predominantly hoppy with little to note in the malts as being totally overwhelmed.

Bottle pour to shaker glass. Attractive, gold color with a persistent, creamy head. Fresh, hoppy with a bit of sweetness; citrus. Smooth on the palate with tangy bitterness in the aftertaste. A good choice for a warm, sunny day.

Appearance is a cloudy orangey amber with a solid thick off-white head. Smell is citrus but overall pretty weak, even with my nose right up in its business. Mouthfeel is solid--medium bodied with the bitterness coming through. Taste is a very subtle pale, with the hops pleasant but not too strong. Overall a nice pale ale.
