Earthy aroma, with a hint of pine. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a white cap of foam. A touch of tropical fruit at the beginning, fading to an earthy hop finish. Light bodied, easy drinking, not a bad Pale Ale.

Not bad, but the hoppiness is a little overstate. Pours amber/orange with average head and carbonation. Malt and mild citrus on the nose, with just a little more citrus and grass in the finish of the taste.

Draft. Pours a dark golden / Amber color with an ample frothy head. Lots of messy lacing left behind after a few sips. Smells wonderful: citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit. Taste has lots of grapefruit, citrus, some Juicy fruit. A moderate bitterness. Carbonation is a touch soft; finishes light to moderately bitter, some grapefruit lasts to the end.
