Mike certainly has a thing going. I know that Pale Ale is a stock beer for craft brewery places, but this is a bit good. This is quaffingly good beer, I almost forgot to sit and mull over the range of flavours that this has. Almost. It’s crackingly good.
The bitterness is offset by the malts, the layers of taste give it length and depth.
Get some if you can.

Solid example of an APA. Little more malt driven than hop driven but nicely balanced. Good length of flavours and had to keep reminding myself that this wasn’t a DIPA. DylansDad (652) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 16, 2013
For a description, the previous two posters have nailed it. This beer can certainly hold its head up in the world of APAs, it has all the essential elements, although, a minor peeve, I did find the flavour profile a bit ’scooped’; there was good bass and treble but the mids felt just a little overlooked. Anyway, I’ll be buying this one again before the month is out, that I can guarantee. It is a very good beer.
