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

Sampled at GABF on 9/16/2010. This Pale Ale pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with some citrus hops. A medium bodied Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy. Nice carbonation. Crisp and clean. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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

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. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-24-2008 00:56:43

MeadMe (1284) - Riverview, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2010
A: Pours a hazy orange with quite a few floaties. Nice tall foamy white head, very good retention and some nice thick sheets of lace. S: Aromas of caramel, pine, and bold citrus. T: Nice light bready malt, hints of caramel and brown sugar as well. Quite aggressively hopped for the style. Mostly citrus with light pine, and hints of earthy grassy notes in the bitter finish. M: On the lighter side of medium, slick, bitter biting finish. D: Good, I really like this one. A very solid pale.

benpickens (397) - Camarillo, California, USA - JAN 6, 2010
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.

RKanis (152) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2009
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.
