Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of peaches and grapefruit, as well as light notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with lots of fruit - somewhat fruit punchy, leading to a slightly bitter end.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light evergreen/citrus aroma. Nice amber color, but the thinnest head possible. Starts with some pine, but malt immediately arrives. The good news is that a citrus hop finish is there. There is malt along with the citrus, but it’s a very good finish. It’s a very good pale ale, and it verges on IPA hoppiness. I understand the comments about brown sugar and honey, but in my mouth they flow away quickly. So it’s dry/astingent. This is really good pale ale. Really. Good.
