Pours amber with a fairly creamy off-white head and clear. Aroma is of citrus fruits and floral hops with a slight caramel malt scent. Taste is mildly bitter with a good sweet backbone. Medium body, softer carbonation, and smooth / creamy on the palate. Overall a decent pale ale.

22 oz bottle. Pours ruby amber in color, has a ton of zesty hops, nice malty sweetness to balance itself. Not for the faint hearted with regard to the bitterness, but not over the top either.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured a hazy deep orangish amber with a thin cap white head that quickly dissipated and left light lacing. The aroma starts malty, biscuity, bread crust with some sweet honey notes, and a slight hint of floral hops. The taste is very balanced with sweet, light caramel malt followed by a subtle bitterness. Very smooth, with easy carbonation.

draft at Coles, Buffalo. A real nice pale ale. Deeper amber caramel pour. Caramel malt heavy aroma. Flavor is more malt than hop but has a great caramal malt flavor with decent hop presence. Well balanced with a fuller mouthfeel. Nice APA

Another very sessionable beer. Nice hops flavor with just enough sweetness from the malts. The little higher alcohol is masked extremely well. Had this with a margarita pizza and it went beautifully.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle. Pours an orangish amber with a big pillowy head of white cream. Aroma is spicy floral hops with some sweetness. A very nice smooth balanced flavor profile. The malts get a little sticky and too sweet at warmer temperatures, but cold, this beer is incredibly refreshing and easy to drink with a nice crisp hop bite to the finish.
