Out of a bottle so aroma and appearance are a little hard to judge. Taste is pretty good; more intense flavor than your typical beer but not over doing it on any one aspect.

Poured from bottle to tumbler. Two finger white head, medium lacing. Amber-Orange in color. Aroma of grapefruit and pine with malty notes. Taste bitter with some sweetness. Medium body, light carbonation. Finishes herbal, earthy and pleasingly bitter. A great American Pale Ale.

Drank this draw at Tonic. Liked it! A lot! Kind of hoppy. But in a good way. Will drink it again.

darker orange, less lacing, small bubbled oily cap. Grassier, juicier than River, light manure. Sweet orange flavor at front, some cereal mid with dusty toast and caramel sugars finish. Juicier with more citrus than River, very similar though.

Bottle. Amber with a white head. Citrus hop aroma. Mild hop flavor with a good body. Not crazy tasty but very easy drinking.

It's ok. Nothing special about it. Kind of a bad aftertaste. Not much of a pale ale fan anyway.

Delicious, almost perfect Amber color. Tastes great and leaves a clean palate. But bitter, not heavy. This beer defines the term "ale"

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle served in a cheater pint. Pours light orangish golden with medium thick off-white head. Aroma is light caramel malt with faint sweet, earthy, oaky notes. Just a hint of hops on the back. Taste is clean juicy caramel malt, with light crisp hops to balance. Pine and citrus notes present.
Impressively malty and flavorful for a relatively low abv. One of my favorite pale ales, and easily an archetype for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden amber. Biscuit malt, citrus nose, and a touch of juiciness. It has craftsmanship, but it’s not for me.
