Strong sweet subtle aroma, and LOTS of head. Maybe I got a different batch than Gusler, but my head is STILL an inch high, and it’s been about 4 minutes. Not very translucent, dark amber color, creamy froth on top. Somewhat thin in the maltiness department, but has a couple of conflicting flavors that are fairly decent, but get less paletable as the beer warms up. Make sure to keep this one fairly cold. A decent pale, not my favorite.

Rating #1999 2015.09.27 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 4, Beer 101 – Draught at taproom/brewpub. Golden amber pour with a creamy white head that bubbles away quickly. Hops very fragrant with mild citrus in the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium carbonation, and bitter hops on the finish - but not overpowering, very balanced. Delicious.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft citrus on the nose, crisp and clean. Medium bodied, citrus peeks through again, light and sweet. Slow citrus through the finish, clean and easy drinking.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Tap. Pours a clear orangish copper body with a small foamy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is piney and citrusy hops with some caramel malt, but it’s not overly sweet smelling. The flavor is lightly bitter with some floral and tropical hops. Fairly light bodied, but not in a bad way. Some lingering passionfruit on the back end. Really pretty nice and refreshing. Just the right amount of hops to keep the sweetness in check. Nice sessionable Pale Ale.

jrodooo5 (1474) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pretty golden pour w/ a white foamy head & solid lacing. The aroma has some light citrus & piney notes. The taste is slightly bitter & a tad watery. Not a big flavor burst but it is drinkable & overall an average beer.
