Can poured in an imperial pint. Beautiful dark amber color with a dense bright white head that thins but only to 1/2 inch. Excellent lacing. Sugar pine aroma. Nicely balanced pale ale with flavors of biscuit, apricot nectar, and a little boost of resin. Hop bitterness lingers on the palate. Very quaffable.

Poured amber with a 2 finger head, the aroma was citrus and piney hops. The flavor was a nice blend of hops and caramel malts. This was a a decent APA, would drink it again.

Poured a dark copper with a nice creamy head that left a ton of lacing. Aroma was grass and pine but also had a very odd plastic smell. Taste was spicy and malty with strong hop bitterness at the finish.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells fruit and earthy with some caramel hints. Tastes malty with some light citrussy splashes on the finish. Hops almost totally burnt out. Malty IPA, had lots of amber ale characteristics

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 What makes this pale ale is its hop character--spicy and floral--which is overlaid on a perfect malt foundation.

Pour is hazy orange with thin white head, aroma has notes of nice pine, orange, tangerine and big grapefruit, hints of caramel and biscuit, and hints of lemon in there as well. I wish it tasted like it smelled, taste is some slight lemon, orange, hints of tangerine, touch of caramel and toffee, finishes fairly dry, hints of spice. Not bad.
