4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 10/9/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright golden color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light steaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, lemon/orange zest, light pine, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is an excellent pale ale. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
