Bottle. Smells wonderful but hard to place. Floral? Little fruity? Pours paddle yellow, thin head, fades to the edge with some lace in the middle. Taste follows the aroma with just a hint of bitterness. It’s a little more bitter than I’d like overall, but it’s a good pale ale.

Aroma is strong upon opening, seems to mellow after the pour. Fruity aromas mostly, and the sip is smooth at first. The hop bitterness comes sneaking in at the end and lingers. Each sip furthers this taste. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased at Lukas Liquors in Kansas City, Missouri. 233 3 6330 1750 stamped on the brown bottle with black ink - I didn’t see the date stamp at the store, I assume this is Julian 233rd day of 2013, so not all that fresh. The pour is orange golden, mostly clear, with a one inch well formed white head. The aroma is citrus somewhat sweet peach, grass along with toasted biscuit malt. The taste is a nice blend of the citrus peach sweet grass hops and the clean malt character. The palate is light to medium bodied, active fine carbonation, and a crisp clean dry finish. Tasty Pale Ale.

Hoppy and acid aroma, quite pale color with nice foam that doesn't keep long. Nice palate and taste. Could be another of my "everyday" APA'

A very nice aroma with traces of floral and herbs. Nice taste but unfortunately a bit too bitter in my opinion.

Clear pale golden yellow pour with good sticky soapy white head. Clean crisp citrusy floral western pale ale. Every so slight ’stinkiness’ to it. Really is one of the pale ales i’ve had. Classic for the style.
