This attractive pale ale pours a bright amber color, with a frothy off-white head and gorgeous lacing that lingers. Forward hop-derived aromas leap from the glass, including scents of orange oil, grapefruit pith and pressed hop flowers, with additional notes of ripe tropical fruit and sweet, raw dough that add depth. A solid caramel-malt backbone supports the creamy, medium-weight palate and keeps the piny, bitter-hop flavors in check. Hints of caramel and toasted bread tease on the finish, followed by a long, dry astringency that leaves you begging for more.
