Draft - straw color pour. Nose of faint tropical fruit rinds and hops. Taste follows the nose. A little grassy but mainly one dimensional. Not bad but several better options. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a medium orange with a thin white head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits (pineapple mainly) grassy and herbal hops, and some light sweet malts. Taste is simIlar to the aroma with a lot of citrus, pine, and pinnapple with just enough malt to balance out the hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, slighty dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, refreshing APA, that is very hoppy for the style.

Part of a sampler set at the brewpub. Nice light golden color with medium off white head. Nose was floral and fruity, pineapple came through. Taste was mildly sweet, medium bodied. Overall a nice refreshing beer, liked the pineapple. FlacoAlto (4240) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Sampled on tap at the Brewpub; July 2012
The beer arrives from the tap with a pale, hazed, gold color that is topped by a thin, white head. The aroma smells of grain, dried hay and yes, pineapple. There is also notes of tangelo zest and a touch of cracker like malt.
The beer has a richer body than I was expecting it to, but it is still just down-right quaffable.. There is a big, bitter, biting hop character here that also has significant herbal ,pine and menthol edges to it. There is also an ample tropical fruit character that is the dominant flavor in this beer; specifics of lychee, pineapple and lots of floral citrus character are all easily noticeable.
This is a damn good Pale Ale, I could certainly drink a whole lot of this beer. The body is really what makes this beer, it is light an quaffable, but with enough residual malt substantialness to support and balance the expressive hop character that defines this beer.
