Bready, yeasty aroma, but subtle. Bitterness I would not describe as citrus. Bitterness had a long finish. Says "Pale Ale" but more of an IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours a clear dark gold to copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring, some light lacing. The aroma is more driven by the sweet crystal malt than by the hops, just some minimal citrusy notes. Not a great start to this one. The flavor is overly sweet as well with a little too much crystal malt. What hops are there, are pretty covered by the residual sweetness. Medium bodied with a little clingy sweetness and fizzy carbonation. Definitely a letdown for a west coast hoppy beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours a rich golden amber color. Very little head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops up front, with significant maltiness. Flavor is bitter and roasty up front but with a sweet backbone. Overall a decent imperial IPA.
