Tasty is an under statement. If you are a hop head where flavor and not sheer ibu is king, then you have hit the end of the rainbow.

Tap @ brewery. Hazy gold pour with a froth of white foam. Arona is light, fresh hops but no real pine or bitterness. Taste is light fresh hops and a clean malt backbone but not much else. Okay.

A - Served a golden orange color with a thin finger of white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lace.
S - Aroma is full of citrus hop with lots of grapefruit and a bit of pine. There is a bit of sweet caramel malts in the background.
T - Starts off with lots of fresh citrus and grapefruit hops with some good bitterness and some pine. Through the middle, the sweet caramel malts comes through a bit with some more hop flavor. The finish is a mix of earthy citrus hops with some bitterness that lingers.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a nice dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Really nice fresh hop pale ale. The hop profile was really nice and there was a good balance.
