Found this at a new restaurant. The aroma was a great balance of hops and malt. Taste was the same great mix. Very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/20/2014. Labeled as 5.5%. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, apple, peach, apricot, mango, light pepper/pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, apple, peach, apricot, mango, light pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of herbal/piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, peach, apricot, mango, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fair amount of dryness after the finish from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice American pale ale style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Even with the obvious English yeast counterpart, I feel this still fits the American style with it’s citrus and tropical flavors. A very enjoyable offering.

Subdued citrus pine aroma in a cloudy golden pour. Taste is mildly hop forward with a medium weight body to match. A nice brew - but nothing spectacular.
