Hoppy aroma with a nice crisp bitter flavor. A dry mouth feel and not overly sweet. Hits with the hops but is very sessionable.

Smells great, like an IPA almost with some addition of something sweet like honey. Nice, brought to me by a friend.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle poured into my Mad Anthony pint glass.
A- Body is a cloudy pale yellow color with lots of sediment n’at floating around in the glass. Pours with a 1 finger white head that quickly fades to 1/2 finger and has good retention from there. Leaves traces of lacing all the way down the glass.
S- Nice, classic APA nose. Lots of pale malt along with some subtle earthy and floral hops and a slight citrus twang.
T-A little bit of lemon zest accents soft floral and earthy hops and a solid pale malt backbone. The finish adds a touch of citric bitterness adds some crispness to the finish. Pretty clean and nothing lingers.
P-Good medium to high tingly carbonation and light, smooth, drinkable body.
O- This is a nice, classic pale ale. The classic version of this style seems to get overshadowed by much hoppier APA’s like Dale’s. I wouldn’t mind having this again, though there are similar local examples readily available to me.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a cloudy copper with a rocky pronounced head. Smells of citrus fruits. Big hop hit up front but lacking a sweet malt backbone, making it out of balance. Feels thin and soapy.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
IPours with an incredibly thick off-white head. Very nice citrus and pine aroma. Cloudy amber appearance as a pale ale should have. Taste is somewhat flat. Judging from the aroma the taste should be much stronger. A good beer but only a mediocre pal ale.
