Growler. Hazy golden orange with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of toasty malt, citrus, yeast and caramel. Flavor is more toasty malt with a medium hop bitterness and fruity yeast esters. Medium body with a slightly sugary mouth feel. Ok beer, a bit on the sweet side for me though.

Pours nice, little foam, pretty golden bubbles go the whole time.
Taste is good but it has an aftertaste that reminds me a bit of dirt.
Maybe its a "pigskin" thing.

Hazy amber beer, good white head. Palate starts soft but turns crisper. A little creamy malt and caramel. Minerals. Mild sweet generic fruits before mild hop bitterness kicks in. Pine. Finishes semi dry. Decent without being attention grabbing.

Poured from the bomber. Aroma is of earthy and dank hops. Colour is straw but hazy. Flavor reflects the earthy hops, but is malt balanced like a Sierra Nevada. Palate is equally balanced, not too dry, etc. Very good pale ale.
