3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium orange with a thin white head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits (pineapple mainly) grassy and herbal hops, and some light sweet malts. Taste is simIlar to the aroma with a lot of citrus, pine, and pinnapple with just enough malt to balance out the hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, slighty dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, refreshing APA, that is very hoppy for the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on tap at the Brewpub; July 2012
The beer arrives from the tap with a pale, hazed, gold color that is topped by a thin, white head. The aroma smells of grain, dried hay and yes, pineapple. There is also notes of tangelo zest and a touch of cracker like malt.
The beer has a richer body than I was expecting it to, but it is still just down-right quaffable.. There is a big, bitter, biting hop character here that also has significant herbal ,pine and menthol edges to it. There is also an ample tropical fruit character that is the dominant flavor in this beer; specifics of lychee, pineapple and lots of floral citrus character are all easily noticeable.
This is a damn good Pale Ale, I could certainly drink a whole lot of this beer. The body is really what makes this beer, it is light an quaffable, but with enough residual malt substantialness to support and balance the expressive hop character that defines this beer.

A pretty good pale ale. It definitely keeps it interesting with the tropical flavor. Think a weak version of zombie dust.
