Hoppy hoppy is the way to describe this pale ale. A little too malty in my opinion but still very good. Pours copper in color with a tan head. Had a draft in myrtle beach ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zeswaft (1625) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle. Pretty tame aroma. Lightly hoppy. Flavor is also pretty mild for a 8% beer. Well balanced with mild citrus hops and caramel malt. Alcohol well hidden. I would certainly drink it again.

JStax (4992) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a pretty hazy copper with a thin head of beige foam. The aroma has a lot of wood and pine character. Somewhat resinous. The taste is pine bitterness. Not awful, but really not good either. Bigger body, thick mouthfeel, medium carbonation.
