Sample at the brewpub. Hazy amber pour with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of hops. grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent all around.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Combo rating between me and my wife. So I would have a tick down. Nice amber hue with odd white head. Great lacing too. Nose is spicy hops and quite generous for a pale ale. Flapcor has an initial burst of hops but not heavy. Good balance of bready malt. Really nice for a standard pale.

Pours a strong golden. Sweet and aromatic with floral hops. Not the most bitter pale ale, but more bitter than the IBUs would lead one to believe.
