Multiple bottles thanks to jrallen34 and mikem409. Thanks fellas! Orange amber, mildy cloudy, with a sudsy white head. Nose is fresh citra, nicely bitter, mild sweetness, lots of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Hoppy flavor, with a creamy, sparkling hop palate that pale ales dream of. Yummers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy burnt orange pour with a white head. Grapefruity hop aromas. Bitter and with bland almost grapefruit hops, but not really. Very unbalanced with little malt characteristics. Hey, the label is cool and I’m glad I got to try it...

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy and light yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is chock-full-of fruity pineapple and juicy peaches - skins included. Medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor presents fruity peach and pineapple up front and medium to heavy tannic bitterness on the backside. Finishes fruity, mildly acidic, lightly bitter and bone dry. Nice pale ale. Kudos to fear025 for shipping some bottles my way!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured golden-yellow with a white head. Insane amount of citrus and bitter orange peel, or rind qualities. A little bit of mango fruitiness, especially in the aroma. Clean, and beautifully balanced.

a couple bottles courtesy of bauermj, thanks man! definitely a fine pale ale, no doubt. has a malt profile that reminds me of blind pig and pliny, the hops are big and blanced, bitter and sweet, drinks very well. great finish with the hops transitioning into the light cereal like malts. your basic citrus, tropical and a hint of red berries. delicious.
