(bottle - 12 oz) Orange pour with a fluffy head. Lots of citrus and pine resin in the aroma. Dry and grassy hops at the start that move to a juicy and sweet citrus middle and a lightly peppery but malty finish. Light bitterness lingers.

Excellent pale ale. Much like Sierra Nevada’s and Boulevard’s. Both are better than this one which is slightly lacking something. The fact that this pale ale’s score is 87 and Blvd’s pale is 69 is proof that it’s more about brands than flavor. Blvd’s pale ale was in the 30’s before the Smokestack series made people pay attention to the brand.

Hazy golden colour with lots of tiny particles in the brew. Nice creamy warm cap that stays long and give out bubbly lace. Hoppy nose with fruity grapefruit notes and mild pine. Wet mouthfeel at first, but gets dryer as the aftertaste progress. Mild bitterness lingers. The taste is on the fruity side with lots of citrus and a bit of its zest. Something is not well-balanced in the middle. Not a bad APA, but not something I would have many.

Tap in pint glass at Sheffields in Chicago. Dark Gold with small white head. Citrus hop aroma. Hop taste but we’ll balanced. Dry but good balance throughout on the palate. Nice beer, better than expected.
