Oliphant Brewing Party Pail Hazy Pale Ale

Thanks to my friend Amanda for picking this up while in Wisconsin recently. Today's sampling is Party Pail Hazy Pale Ale by Oliphant Brewing out of WI.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange juice body with a moderate amount of snow white head on top that diminishes rather quickly, leaving behind a sprinkling of head on the glass.

Aroma: Fairly sweet, floral, tropical notes of pineapple, grapefruit and mango. Leafy hops, grassy hops, but mostly tropical-forward.

Taste: The leafy and bitter part of the hops comes out at first this time around, leaving bit of an alfalfa-like presence, oh and can't forget the bitterness of the yeast. Tad sweet with notes of pineapple, orange zest, lemon and mango, bit bitter with grapefruit.

Overall Thoughts:
Heavy on the yeast and the hops tingle the palate a good deal but not bad. Typical Hazy Pale Ale for the most part.
