This pale ale seems like every other at first but let it ramble through your mouth and you’ll notice a caramel-smoky flavor that makes it a very unique but still veryu authentic pale ale.

Crisp, malty aroma has a note of sour apple. It pours a nice bubbly almost clear amber with a very thick and fluffy white head. The sample I got fizzed like crazy, so open with care! Flavor is quite satisfying, malty with a slightly sour fruity note and an earthy, hop-bitter undertone. Smooth texture has above-average body and a firm, persistent fizz. A truly satisfying and enjoyable ale.

12 oz. bottle. Bubbly gold color, with a medium, frothy, beige head. Lots of lacing. Strong orange juice aroma, and some caramel, sourdough, and straw. Sweet and malty flavor, with a nice, smooth bitterness. Light to medium body, smooth, and a little grainy. This is a very nice, smooth, easy-drinking pale ale. Great hop aroma, and an amazing, well-balanced flavor.

Bottle thanks to badnloose. Pours a slightly dark amber color. Small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is hoppy, with notes of pine and citrus. Flavor is citrus, with some floral notes. I really liked this one as it’s a very solid APA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Bottle. A great pale ale! I think some lower raters are comparing this to an IPA. As a pale ale, this is a fine brew. Burnt orange/bronze pour with a frothy white head and thick lacing. Sweet citrus hop scent, grapefruit with a spoonful of sugar, and a hint of pine in the finish. Light/medium bodied (a low point for me), sticky texture. If it were a little fuller in the mouthfeel, I’d have rated it higher. Hop taste right up front, citrus, and a tangy middle that reminded me of fruit loops! Bitter finish. Excellent!
