3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2011 Bottle. The pour was clear medium orange with a small (less than 1 finger) fizzy white head that did not stick around too long and had what I would call OK lacing.
The aroma was of quite noticeable of citrus and pine hops right off, with a mild caramel malt and an earthy yeast undertone with mild notes of fruit and citrus towards the end.
It tasted nice and hoppy with a strong note of citrus (grapefruit) right off the bat then became a tad malty with a note of fruit and a nice strong hoppy finish. The flavor lasted for quite a while after the swallow allowing the bitterness of the hops to settle in nicely on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied and very smooth and a bit dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a very satisfying Pale Ale that had a nice blending of fruit, malts and hops.
