poured a clear amber hue with barley any head. Aroma had a mix of caramel malts and both pine like and grapefruit hops. There was a slight almost a leathery presence. Flavor was mainly hops, which seemed to be more grapefruit than pine. Malts were present, but mild. Finish was moderately dry.

BTBF. Light orange color. Hoppy nose, citrus, sappy. Sweet notes. Flavor is dank, hops, musty notes, dry and a bit rough on the finish.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a slightly clear gold/yellow body with a one finger white foamy head, streams of carbonation are seen rising at a moderate pace, some clingy lacing sticks to the pint glass throughout the entire drink. The smell had a strong citrusy hops up front, a slight amount of caramel and bread follow up as it warms. The taste was bittersweet all the way down, wow! slight bittersweet aftertaste, crisp yet smooth finish. On the palate, it was light, sessionable, carbonated exactly the way it should be, smooth all around. Overall, wow, what a nice APA, I can’t believe I’ve passed up on this so many times and now I’ve finally had it and am kicking myself for not having it sooner.

Aroma is fine, some citrus hop notes. No malt. The mouthfeel is clean with an aggressive hop finish. The flavor is dominated by hops and the beer has a pleasant hops citrus flavor but a harsh hops finish. I would expect a Pale ale to be more balanced. This should not taste like an IPA.

A typical American Pale Ale; not too bitter or hoppy. Floral aroma, smooth finish, clear dark blond. - March Madness 2014

This is a fine example of a American pale ale. Hoppy, but light and not overpowering. It would be good in the summer months when you need to battle the oppressive heat. Watch the review: http://teamchug.com/?p=791

fishonmyplane (350) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 9, 2013
A modern American pale ale: hoppy with a high ABV. More substantial than I expected, almost an amber or copper ale. Bitter flavor with citrus and some subtle notes of grass, hay, and cereal malt.

Pours straw with a lacing white head. Aroma of pine, hops, and citrus. Aroma of the same, sweet malts, citrus, mild fruityness. Good.
