Pours a clear honey/straw golden body. One finger of white head. Retention is great, and lacing is really nice as well.
Smells of pineapple, mango, stone fruit, a hint of grass and earth as well. The nose is huge!
Taste follows smell. Apricots, pineapple, mango, grass, a touch of weed. The finish is earthy, grassy bitterness, and it lingers forever.
Mouthfeel is light, crisp, carbonation is spot on.
Super refreshing and hoppy pale ale. One of the best pale ales I have had in recent memory.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks for sharing this, Andrew.
A: The beer pours a pale golden orange color with a nice white head.
S: Very fruity aroma with pineapple, grapefruit, and a touch of peach. There are light grass and floral notes with some sweet pale malts. It's almost a little bit catty from those New Zealand hops.
T: Starts off with a bit of sweet malt and bread. There is a light grass note, but again, it's quite fruity. Plenty of pineapple and various citrus with only a mild pine and moderate bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation and a long lasting finish with some lingering bitterness.
O: A very solid, easy drinking, and very flavorful pale ale. Well done, Andrew.
Serving type: growler
