light tan foamy head that retained well for a while then collapsed. Carbonation low with small bubbles. Aroma of very and strong nice citrus hops. Taste a bit bland up front followed by a nice mild citrus hops bitterness. Light to medium body. Overall a very pleasant beer with a long nice bitter finish.

Review from notes on 07/07/10.
$2 for 12oz @ Huckís in Spokane, WA.
Poured from bottle to Sam Adams glass.
A: Pours a brilliant amber with two finger persistent white whipping atop the ale. This is consistently complimented from bubbles arising from the ale.
S: Hops! Hooray! Pine, citrus, skunk, earth, grain all accentuate this pales nose. On the sharp side, this is nose candy.
T: The hops carry over into the taste as well. Strong citrus and pine with a resin bitterness marry the generous malt packed into this one. Finishes with a wonderful, short lived, balanced flavor of hops and malt.
M: Moderate carbonation allows you to enjoy the flavors on this pale. Medium bodied for a pale, this is not a childís PA.
D: This screams American Pale Ale. For those who enjoy Daleís Pale Ale, get your hands on this one! Malty, hoppy, and clocking in at 60 IBU, this beer stands far from the children in itís category as a manís beer!

Bottle pours clear copper with a medium head and thin lacing. Aroma is subtle hoppiness. Flavor is not bad. I need to try a fresh one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright Hazy Orange with foamy head, decent lacing and mild visible carbonation. Floral Hops, yeasts, grassiness and caramel malts in the nose. Flavor is rather bitter with floral hops, caramel, grassiness, Munich malts, and bitter resin aftertaste. Light body and moderate carbonation. Decent but I think there are better APAs out there.

Pours a muddy bronze. Hazy. Big eggshell topper. Smells of dough and soap. Soapy through the taste with grass, citrus zest, and sweet bread notes. Nice bitterness lingers with dry finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Not bad, but a little off point.

The beer pours nicely with a decent straw haziness and a nice white one finger head and leaves some decent lacing on the glass but my particular beer was loaded with sediment. The smell is okay with a mild citrus bitterness to it, somewhat orange and white pepper scent. The taste is decent with a nice bitter citrus hoppiness to it. The mouthfeel is okay with a bitterness lingering and decently carbonated. Overall, an average APA but the beer seems to have more chracteristics of a pale ale than an APA.
