A prickly bitterness is a good way to describe this. I like that sort of finish. Man, Piscator knows his stuff. thanks for sharing this with me. It was great

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 02/2014. Pours a light golden honey color with a small white head that dissipates quickly and notable lacing. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, sweet malts, lots of citrus. Flavor is very sweet up front, almost candy-like. Certainly a less bitter strain of hops, more sweetness in the middle of the mouth and a long bitter clean finish and aftertaste. Medium carbonation. It’s light and very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery, served in a snifter. Pours clear straw-golden with a small, white head. The head fades slowly to a thin remnant, leaving a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of pine, flowers, lemon and grass, along with a moderate amount of grain. The flavour starts out slightly sweet, but soon becomes moderately bitter. The finish is average in duration with a moderate spicy, peppery finish. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice pale ale with a generous, hoppy nose. Served very fresh at the brewery, and well worth another try. 2011-06-08

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Beer is a clear, medium orange with a small, frothy, white head that vaporizes immediately. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate notes of lemon, flowers and iced tea, trace of resin/pine. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with a longer than average, lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. I have really enjoyed the delicate, refreshing notes in this beer. It’s highly drinkable, yet still reasonably complex.
