Draft - Bright citrus hops. Pale gold with a decent white head. Grapefruit and pine with a nice pale malt sweetness to balance. This pale ale is more of an IPA than their others. A great if not big APA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a finger and half of head on a clear, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is grapefruit, through and through.
The taste is strong bitterness, a bit dry and all grapefruit again.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
It’s a strongly bitter pale ale and good for it.
