Description 

This fresh, sessionable Hazy Pale ale stands out as one of our core, year-round beers. Flavors of bright citrus juice, orange rind, and pineapple lead to a light and fruity finish. An after work pick-me-up, or a patio pounder, Sightglass is refreshing: inviting sip after sip.

Sightglass by Single Hill Brewing falls under the category of #18B (American Pale Ale) according to the 2015 BJCP Guidelines. This is a Hazy Pale Ale. The beer revealed a straw-like hue in the pour with an obviously cloudy and hazy appearance. It had nice carbonation that dissipated quickly. The aroma had nice citrus reminiscent of grapefruit. Nice balance of malt and hops. The malt had a very nice malt sweetness and the hop bittering was moderate. It just falls under the standard ratio of IBUs for a pale ale. The hop flavoring again had a nice citrus taste and flavor - once again of a grapefruit quality. The beer was somewhat dry and crisp. The body and mouthfeel were light with a light carbonation. This is a very quenching summer beer. Very light malt and hop bitterness makes this a very drinkable beer for those long summer days.
