Bottle. The pour was a slightly hazy golden amber with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that had great retention and lasting throughout producing thick sheets of lacing. The aroma was to say the least nice and hoppy of a pine hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with nice strong notes of citrus and caramel. The taste was bold and bitter with a hint of caramel at first then became extremely hoppy with a real nice dose of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted a really long time allowing for full enjoyment of this beyond hoppy brew. Mouthfeel was just a bit beyond light in body and dry in texture with a nice prickly carbonation. Overall this Pale Ale is by far one of the better ones out there. If I did not know any better, I would have taken it for an IPA.

ben4321 (4318) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Location: Draft at Dandelion Market, 2/16/15

Aroma: The aroma is light hops, some citrus notes, a little pine, and some caramel
Appearance: This one pours a clear golden color with a decent off-white head
Flavor: The flavor is light-medium sweet and medium bitter, fairly balanced
Palate: It has a light-medium body, fairly easy drinking, clean enough, with a light dry finish
Overall Impression: A decent enough APA that maybe leans a touch closer to the EPA style than most of its brethren. Solid enough though. Unoffensive.

Just a plain simple average beer. Aroma is grain. Taste and mouthfeel is grain. Palate is good for abv actually a strong part of this brew. Overall a sweet syrup type of beer with little dry hop and little pale ale. No distinct anything pale ale.

chinchill (2437) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Unibroue snifter. (from notes). A: The beer is a deep amber color. Poured quite clear although a small amount of sediment remained at the bottom of the bottle. Has a short white head that soon fades to a ring, leaving little lacing on the glass. S: The aroma is complex and malty for style. Features caramel malts and some pale hops and light hops with hints of vanilla, honey, and citrus. T: The taste has a crisp and spicy/herbal hop component along with a sweet malt base. Overall, mildly bitter by the finish. More malt in the finish and aftertaste than expected. Complex flavor components integrate nicely. M: Crisp; medium body; medium carbonation; semi-dry finish. O: A complex and flavorful APA. More malty than average due to the load or assortment of malts; not to any lack of hops. Recommended.

boxofrane (2292) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from Food Lion. Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head that dissipates to a white film and leaves a bit of lacing. The aroma has a grassiness, a bit pils-esque. The taste has a light bitterness, a grassy hoppiness, dry finish. No bitterness and little to seperate from an average to slightly below average pale ale.
