Excellent beer! Very similar to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Total IBU's will put you over for Pale Ale. But the Horizon hops are super clean and the bitterness level is perfect for a pale ale. The dryhopping adds a very fruity and spicy aroma. Overall taste is fruity followed by a spicy finish..medum mouth feel. Best beer I've made yet.
