UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Pours a cloudy bright orange color with a finger and a half of a white head that dissipates to a nice thick lacing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. How a pale ale should look. Smells of tons of floral notes, some resinous, dank qualities, grapefruit, a soapy quality to it, some juicy fruits like pineapple. Do get some bread and grain as well from the malt. Taste starts with some resinous, yet juicy qualities from the hops such as grapefruit, just tons of floral, almost a perfume-like flavor. Then the middle brings some balance with wheat notes, grain, and carmel. Get some qualities here that may suggest some to say it is "watered down," but I disagree. The finish is more of the prominent floral qualities of the hops, as well as some pine, grass, pineapple, grapefruit, carmel. Crisp, light body with a creamy and thin mouthfeel. This is not on the Alpha King or Zombiedust level for apas, but it is definitely a quality, hoppy pale ale that I would gladly have anytime I can get my hands on some.

Draft at Good Beer. Good pale ale. Fresh grains. Some pleasant sweetness in the aroma, and a little acidity. Not especially exciting but could be a good session brew.

16 oz can poured at home to a can glass. Glass seems half the size of the tall boy can, but its been proven. They are pint glasses. Amazing. Thanks to luttonm for gifting this can. Pours dense cloudy orange color with a mountain of cone foam head. Hop centered aroma, with a pleasant invitation. Mild sweet malt, juicy hops, cool, low bitter finish. With the name and illustrations, I expected a total floral bomb going on here, but its not the headliner here. Id guess more of an orange peel soft bitter over a floral bitter. All adds up to be a refreshing pale, that rivals some of the hop heavy delicious pales here in the NW. If accessible, I would totally get on board with this one. Very nice beer here.

Can from Chicago, consumed in Seattle. Almost clear yellow-gold, small soapy foam. Fresh, but also quite biscuit malty. Pale, drying bitter. Tart bitter hop but robust cardboard malt body. Drying bitter finish. Robust but not a great profile.
