Pours a light dark amber. Has a smoky oak aroma. Taste is very unique with little hops and strong oak and smoky malt. A lingering smoky aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber/bronze pour. Nose of salty smoked malts and caramel malt. Flavor is smoked meat/salty cheese that finishes with caramel malt and citrus hop bittering. Medium body. Smoke and pale ale flavors really meld together well with further drinking. Trail of salty smoke and candied citrus. Rather enjoyable.

Not even close to smokey. It is a ncie pale ale though, mild, dry, nice citrus character.

Not a bad ipa but not the best one I've had. Smells ok, and the flavor is good as an ipa.

7oz on tap at Fifty West. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Good thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of soft, lightly slick finish. Good hop profile. Lightly spicy, and orange citrusy. Light caramel malt. I hear this is a smoked pale ale, but smoke is very subtle. This might be because I am standing next to a bonfire as I taste this. Moderate bitter taste, little sweet taste. Solid, hoppy pale ale. Sneaky amount of smoke... well-balanced, you could say

On tap at mad mex. Looks like a yuengling. Smells like clean beer. Ooooo, the taste is quite strong at first. However, never makes it over the top. For a 6%, I guess its not coming on too strong after the session gets going. Yes, ass kicken but yet remains reserved. Indeed, a unique beery flavor. Finish is a tad medicinal.
