Pours clear amber with a creamy/bubbly off-white head. Aroma is nicely floral/fruit over mild roast malt. Med body. Flavor is moderately hoppy - fruit and floral over mild roast malt. The finish is definitely on the bitter side. Hop accumulates towards a slight burn. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is amber in color with a couple fingers of white head that leaves some mild lacing on the glass.
S: A solid hoppy aroma right away. Juicy citrus with plenty of oranges and tangerines, perhaps some hints of grapefruit, too. A moderate amount of malt in there. Nicely balanced.
T: The citrus hop flavors open things up quite pleasantly. Plenty of tangerine and mild grapefruit along with some hints of pine which provide a little bitterness. Balanced with sweetness of bready malts.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: This is very much along the lines of how I like my pale ales. Nice hoppy character without being overly bitter or malty.
