Good white head atop a hazy amber brew.. Aroma is okay reminds me immediately of an Americanized English pale... Plenty of maltiness competes to much for the hops... earthy with light citrus hoppiness... the Pale is just not my favorite of this brewery. As it warms, there are definately American hops there... It still needs a little fine-tuning

16 oz draft into a plastic cup at their 10th anniversary party- Pours clear orange with a creamy white head and nice layered lace, impressed considering the plastic container. Aroma is malt, pepper, lightly hopped. Taste is citrus, generic malt, bittering hops. I like this much better than the Grapefruit Pale i had just before this, love the dry finish.

Bottle, thanks Darell! A bit of skunk in the aroma, with bread and citrus notes as well. Nice mouthfeel with a bit of dry bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable.

I splut this with my wife...I picked it out just for her. It claims that it is good to drink after a hard days work in the sun. I had sat all day inside listening to review lectures and trying to program a Boxee app to watch EMRap videos on, so I don’t know if I’m in the target audience.
Regardless after pouring it there was a really thick head because I poured it wrong and it took forever to dissipate. Tastes slightly hoppy and a bit bitter with lemon hiding in there somewhere. I personally didn’t like it that much, too bitter, my wife enjoyed it though. I could see drinking maybe one or two of these on a hot day, but not any more.

Bottle - Very grassy with some lemon citrus. Cloudy yellow with a decent minimal head. Bready with a bit of bitterness. A bit of yeast in the finish. Not bad, but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour - bright browny orange body, a bit of carbonation. Two fingers of nice yellowish beige head.
Aroma - fruity and spiced hop, lemon, nice biscuity and caramel malt. Quite a bit of malt in this one for a pale ale with light hops and moderate lemon nose.
Taste - middle is malty with notes of bread, biscuit and caramel as well as a tangy lemon hop on the finish. Notes of light pine, grass, grapefruit. A refreshing hop finish with little aftertaste.
Palate - mild carbonation, refreshing taste, medium body
Overall - a bit too malty for a pale ale, but very nice and refreshing pale.

bottle. Copper-kissed gold with a thick light golden head that shows beautiful retention and lace. Aroma is hoppy with a sweet caramel background. Peach, melon, and pine hop flavours burst on the palate, followed by a creamy caramel malt base. Moderately bitter finish. This may be too malty for some hopheads, but I really loved the flavours here. A real standout APA in its balance.
