This Pale Ale's aroma consists of grapefruit and passion fruit at first, then takes on a familiar piney hoppiness. It is clear and copper-gold with a moderate off-white head. This beer's flavor manages to take on quite a different hop character than the aroma. Quite hoppy from beginning to end, it is herbal and grassy with notes of bitter fruit rind. Underneath is a light toasted malt flavor. This beer finishes spicy and sticky, with lingering bitterness and low warmth. Although it won't stand out amongst competitors, this aggressively hopped Pale Ale is a solid option for the style.
