Bottle, low foam, no lacing to speak of. Good example of the style. Worthy if not exemplary.

Nice orangey medium copper with haze and suspended particulates. Aroma of biscuit malts, slight pine, grass, and a little dank (just a touch of cat pee.) Refreshing mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Pretty light malt bill with some orange and hints of pepper on finish.

Pours a hazy gold with tons of white head and lace. Aroma was grassy, light pine trees with some malt. Taste was grass, lemon, slightly spicey. I got more malt sweetness than others but there was a light pine hop presence. Pretty good, would love this in the summer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[On tap at BHM airport Holiday Inn]
Slightly spicy, pine, apricot and grapefruit aroma with some dried fruit and caramel specialty malt in the background. Hazy copper under, lacy white wisps and a collar of large bubbles. Flavour is fairly sweet base malt with some peppery phenolics and faint, sherry-like accents that are a spicy combination. Perhaps this keg has been sitting around for some time. Bitterness is assertive and leads to a low astringency. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth start, crisp, carbonic finish.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/6/2016. Pours a lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Great appearance. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and lightly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice standard American pale ale. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
