Pours a light golden yellow. Aroma of roasted but light malt and grain with a robust head. Taste is smoked/roasted with a light body and highly carbonated. Finish is dry but bitter. Not really my favorite. One-off

Golden color. Bottle. Thanks blaw. Very foamy head that stayed put. Citrus aroma with a pine taste and a bit caramel. Clean crisp finish. Pretty good.

Draft at brewpub, and Craft Ale House. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, piney hops. Tastes of caramel malt, resiny and peppery hops, with finishing tropical fruit flavors. Decent complexity and feels bigger than it is.

12oz bottle courtesy of GT2/CaptCougar, a nice basic APA, nothing superb but nothing offensive this bottle was a little long in the tooth, but still a solid choice

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear medium copper pour with a slight foamy head. Sharp earthy hops with unexpected dark amber malt flavors that cushions the impact. Floral nose. Lavender. Truffles. Straw. More meadow than barnyard. Lots of citrus pith. Dark vanilla caramel. Charred tangerines. Wildflower honey. Pink peppercorns. Slight smoked cherrywood. Very nice mix. Sharp hop bite with a nice integral earthy dark sugar back.

On the seventh day of Christmas. Pours deep copper with a fluffy white head. Aroma is floral, citrus and earthy. Taste is mild bitters that linger into a sweet finish. Medium bodied with sticky texture.

Pretty impressed with this pale ale. Pours a copper color with a soapy white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and hops with caramel, citrus, and pine flavor. Well done!

Malt aroma is surprising in the mix with the hops on the nose. I think there is too much cara in the mix here, I think it is just a bit too much on the overall profile. On the sweeter, maltier style of pale ales if you’re into those you might like this one. For me, not a fan, but I would try it on tap.
