Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery Minner Pale Ale

Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery Minner Pale Ale, 4.9% ABV. 
Clear-ish, bright golden hued, slim ivory head, looking the very part of a pale ale. 

In the nose: all the fresh citrus-y goodness you should expect from Cascade and Centennial hops. Lemon, lime, and grapefruit. Just gorgeous.

In the mouth: more of the same, fresh, vibrant, hoppy as all heck. Lean bodied, light astringency, clean malt flavors. The hops and the citrus notes are on top, as expected. Hop flavors lay long on the palate. Big hopping on this one, bold and flavorful. They added Amarillo to the dry hopping, as well as Cascade and Centennial. 

Good beer, and you can drink it. I mean that. Hoppy session pale ales / IPAs are my beat, man, that's where I live, and I'm loving it.
