From notes. Pours an orange tinged copper, with a one finger head that recedes quickly to a thin ring that leaves behind a sparse webbing of lace. Smell; mostly piney and citric hops, but neither one really jump out at you. A bit of sweet malts are present, but I can smell a little bit of diacytle as well. Taste; the hops come off as piney with a little citrus, backed my some caramel malts. The diacytle is even more pronounced in the flavor than it was in the smell, and almost overrides the other flavors. Maybe I just really don’t like butter in my beers and I have a hard time getting past it. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, and because of the buttery flavors, this one is hard for to drink.

Nice light hop aroma--mostly floral. Reddish brownin color with a decent head. The palate is medium to full for the style. Nice floral hop taste and good malt balance. Really solid APA--very enjoyable.

Fruity. Some apricot in the aroma. Might be from the apricot ale they brew. Good medium body and a bit sour/tart in the finish.

Not too bad of a brew, to be honest. It wasn’t knock you off your barstool good but it had all the basic implications of a pale ale that hit me the right ways. Word.
