COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper-colored ale is medium-bodied and highly hopped. Its flavor is delightfully complex: tangy fruit at the start, with an assertive hop crispness and a long malty palate that one well-known beer writer has compared to the flavor of freshly-baked bread.

Deep amber body with a beautiful off-white head that clings nicely to the glass. Complex and inviting aroma. Caramel, berries, citrus, and a hint of pine. Smooth, creamy palate with a decent bite of carbonation at the back. The flavor takes the great aroma and steps it up a notch. Sweet entry with caramel and bread coming to mind. The brew finishes appropriately bitter with a grapefruit and pine bite.

BillKismet (3474) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Brassy amber with nice head. Smells like iced tea. Again, the hop flavor is of iced tea, which is complemented by an easy malting and a slight tannic bitterness. Very ESB-like.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 9/3/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, apricot, lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, apricot, lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of piney/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, apricot, lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice compelxity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balace and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice American pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle - I found this Pale Ale to be rather boring. No distinguishing characteristics that would make it worth while to drink again. Good amounts hops but still rather boring.
