COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We kept this one simple, used water, malt, hops, yeast, and made it the kind of beer that will help you, when your (real or imaginary) people are tired, thirsty, hungry, enslave, to step forward and state with authority: Let my people go!

650.6 ml. bottle. Bottled 9/2012. Pours a thick well retained white head with hint of lacing, over a clear, amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is cereal, light cocoa, light pine, hints of toffee/caramel......taste is hints of toffee/caramel, light cocoa, cereal, finishing with a mild hop bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, slight astringency, carbonation low with a light tingle. The hop back bone is understated for an APA and the malts a in moderate ascendancy. The result is more of an Amber than an APA. Given the bottling date, I wonder if the hops have already declined. BJCP 6/3/11/4/7

Bomber. Cloudy dark amber with a foamy head. Strong floral aroma with a perfume taste and sweet. Just okay.

travita (3857) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. The look is clear, off white head, and copper colored. The smell is dill, pickle juice, hops, tart, and fruit. The taste is malts, stale hops, old, and not up to par.

Reddish orange in color with an off-white head, this pale smells strongly of highly caramelized malts... Roasted, almost burnt. The flavor is nice... Dark caramel malts dominate the palate with hardly any hops decorating it. Perhaps some astringency spears in the finish, but its hard to tell if that’s from the malts or hops. It really reminds me more of an amber than a pale ale. not much to this beer... But if it were labeled an amber I’d give it more respect.

alexandersh (196) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle; Color: burnt Amber with reddish tint. Aroma: Fig, very mild scent. Flavor: Herbal tea flavor with a mildly bitter profile, finishes smooth. Palate was watery, overall not my favorite.

alexanderj (3298) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle; color was an amber orange color with a fairly big khaki head. Aroma had a lot of toffee and some dark fruit, reminds me of Halloween for some reason. Flavor had the same profile as the aroma with a touch of wateriness. Toffee and fruity, a bit unusual for the style. Some toasted and earthy elements near the finish. Ok overall.

annunz123 (853) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2013
Caramel and dark fruit in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and fruity with a little flowery bitterness in the finish. Better than I expected.

PhillyCraft (3143) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Draft at Barcade, pours hazy copper with light to medium head, not much lacing. Notes are pale malt, belgian yeast, grapes, saison shampoo, and hops. Drinkable but lacked citrus and sessionable qualities for most pale ales.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
unclemattie (4134) - Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2013
22oz bottle, bottled on 08/2012. Deep copper color. Thick tan foam, nice lacing. Aroma of Brett, spicy rye, and bubblegum. Very interesting nose, wild yeast scent for sure. Caramel malt, notes of honey, nice pine hops, some herbal notes, and dry earthiness. Spicy, peppery tingle in the finish is either the presence of rye or wild yeast strain. A very nice APA. (3641)
