A somewhat bready malt aroma intertwined with fresh-smelling hops that can best be described as having the aroma of a wide field of clover-grassy and floral. After a beautiful copper/orange pour, the malt is dry and bready, almost cookie-like, contributing more body than flavor. The hops are clean, grassy, and provide a thirst quenching, snappy dryness. That quenching dryness is the real strong point of this beer. A good pale ale should be clean and drinkable, with enough character to make it interesting. This beer has a vibrant hop character with a solid malt base. A bit strong for a session beer, but it is an easy drinking pale ale with a solid punch of hops.
