Clear, light amber colour. Lots of flowery hops and citrus aromas. A distinct mango association in the mouth and a rather gentle bitterness. Nice.

Pours golden color with a white head. The aromas is citrus, malty, floral and bread. The taste is citrus, peach, grass and biscuits. A very solid American Pale Ale. Not to much citrus notes, but very drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is biscuity malts and grassy, slightly metallic, hops.
The flavor is sweet biscuity malts with a pretty big grassy hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall, an OK pale ale with good bitterness. The biscuit malt and grassy hops aren’t my thing though.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice head, with a golden color. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, orange, a lot of those hoppy notes you’d expect. Taste is some malt up front, but not too much. Lots of citrus, and grapefruit. On the hoppy side for a pale ale. Light carbonation, not enough for my taste. Maybe not exactly my style, I prefer a maltier pale ale, but I can appreciate that this is definitely a high-quality beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/20/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep gold color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of bright citrus/floral hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/floral hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent pale ale! All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/floral hops and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
