Crisp and clean from start to finish. Large white head with ringed retention around the glass. Grapefruit and lemon aroma that continues in the flavor. A lot of bite for a pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled May 29, 2014.
Appearance: A huge dense off-white head erupts out of the clear and vibrantly orange hued body and sticks around with great retention.
Aroma: Bit of orange, mango and grapefruit, a bit floral. There’s a slight yeasty quality in the aroma, and a bit of a homebrew maltiness.
Taste: Crisp and refreshing with a noticeable hop flavor that is prominently oranges. The body is crisp and clean until the finish, which is a bit dominate by the malt that comes through sharply at the very end to throw this off a bit. Refreshing until the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied with filling carbonation, a bit overcarbed.
Overall: This was much better on tap last year. This year, in bottles, tastes like homebrew, pours like one, and is carbed like one. It lacks the professional refineness that should be associated with a top tier brewery.

Very tasty brew. Kind of a pilsner aroma up front but lots of hops in the end. Very bitter and quite dry. Another great beer for the hot days.

Tap. Probably the best APA I’ve ever had. A bit over carbonated but after it mellows and warms up this is an exceptional hop treat. Bright citrus hops all around and a mild malt balance. Super flavorful and drinkable.
