Aroma: Reminiscent of an English pale ale in terms of malt aroma but with an interesting hop profile that perfectly melds several different hop varieties into a complex herbal, spicy, tropical fruit mixture.
Appearance: Hazy golden with a thin white head that fades quickly.
Flavor: Grassy, earthy and malty bringing us back to a day when this is what pale ales were supposed to taste like. Malt becomes more present as it warms but the hop flavor becomes more piny and resinous.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer with a pleasant bitter aftertaste that leaves you wanting another drink.
