Pours a clear honey amber with a medium white head...nice bright color and thin retention. Aroma has a bit of malty sweetness...almost honey/maple...light tea and earthy hops. Flavor has more earthy tea with just a hint of citrus...light toasty malt backing but the sweetness of the nose doesnt come through here. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy tea/bitterness...floral. tasty.

Tap sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid balanced sweet malt and citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy smooth bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Taster on tap at the brewery. Clear orange yellow color. Good thin white head. Leaves nice ropes of lace. Good citrusy hop aroma, nice grapefruit. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Very impressive hoppy pale ale. Good complex tropical citrus hop profile to it.

Draft at the brewpub served in an Ei8ht Ball can-shaped glass. Pours a clear, bright gold color with a very small white head. Aroma of herbal and citrusy hops, with florals far in the background (fresh wet hops, it seems like), pale and sweet malts, a little summery, outdoorsy straw and grass. Flavor of herbal and citrusy hops, pale and sweet malts, wet earthy notes, some florals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean, smooth mouthfeel that belies the cat piss-hop pellet dankness to the nose. Really nice APA. Could drink this all day.
