Pours a golden yellow with medium sized head. Aroma of hops and floral elements. Flavor has some muted hops and grassiness. Not bad, but not particularly memorable, either.

One of my first beer crushes. Doesnt really hold up to most pale ales these days. Faint bready aroma, biscuit and some citrus on the palate. Good balance. Will always hold a special place in my heart

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange-amber pour. Nose is light citrus hopping, slightly herbal, with a sweet graham cracker malt sweetness and some biscuit. Flavor is a lightly toasty/biscuit malt backbone with light citrus bitterness to match. A mild, drinkable pale ale with more of a focus on balance.

Tap. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is grain and cereal malt, citrus, pine, and resin hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy dark copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is pretty light, more malt driven than then hop focused, which generally makes me sad for an APA. Fairly dry and toasty smelling. The flavor is much like the nose, very minimal bitterness, lots of toasty and dry husky maltiness. At least itís not all sweet and caramel tasting. Finishes very lightly bitter with mostly husky and grainy maltiness. Lighter bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Lingering, almost dusty and grainy malt finish. This one is a pretty big fail in relation to the style for me. This maybe should be considered a hoppy amber ale.

Bottle from Winter Sampler 12pk.
Pours a cloudy amber, frothy off-white head, decent lacing. Some floral hops & citrus on the nose with a bready, caramel malt mixed in.
Taste has a nice balance of floral hop bitterness & creamy caramel malt. Great everyday beer, better than their IPA. Solid effort. Could see myself buying a 12 of this stuff.
