On tap, poured a gold hue w/ small head and no lacing. Moderate hop aroma. Initial flavor light sweet to a light bitter finish of short duration. Taste is bread and a light lemon citrus. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, and semi-dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - A murky amber orange color with a yellow tinted head. Tight bubbles and good retention.
S - Yeasty baked bread, caramel/toffee, some acidic fruit.
T - Bisctuity, lemon/orange citrus, sweet pale malt, tart fruit, hops resin creeps in close to the finish and sits on the back of the palate all the way through to the aftertaste.
M - Light side of medium at first but grows fuller towards the swallow.
A good overall APA. Excellent finish with good flavors. Hops provided flavor but didn’t kick up bitterness until the last second.

Thanks to iNBe. Quite a nice all around APA. Hoppy but not excessively so, with citrusy and piney hops. Decent malt backbone to balance it all out. Serving: Bottle

Enjoyed on tap at Fat Pour in Chicago, IL while a friend bought 4 rounds of bombs from a 24 year old waitress who looked like she was 29. Great pale ale, wish I had more time to enjoy it. Would enjoy again.
