2015 BJCP Category: 18B: American Pale Ale

AROMA: Potent hop aromas of mostly citrus but also grass/spice rack. There is an underlying sweetness of pale malt, but nothing distinctive. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Mostly clear amber/light copper color. Large off-white froth retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderately-high hop flavor right away. Taste is akin to citrus juice concentrate at first with a grassy sensation on the finish with a touch of onion or garlic powder. Mildly sweet honey malt backbone provides balance. Bitterness is quite strong; this could possibly be considered an IPA. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; medium-high CO2. Mouthfeel is fairly crisp and not as thick as an IPA proper. Very quaffable for 5.8% ABV (temptingly sessionable). Refreshing while in the mouth. Hops linger momentarily leaving a slightly dry/pasty sensation. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: A fantastic pale ale that tastes great and is fun to drink. Can also work as an IPA if you want it to. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 43/50

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2016 Felt like I needed to adjust my score. Working through a 4 pack of tallboy cans and this stuff is pretty special. One thing I missed somehow the first time - the palate is perfect: medium, creamy, gulpable. We fought over these and it would live in my rotation if I could get it. ORIGINAL RATING 11/11/16: Courtesy of Wilkes and Lynn from Target in Wesley Chapel, FL. This was done locally at Brew Hub and they swear its not as good as one from brewery. Anyway... gold pour, thin white head. aroma of tropical fruit, grassy, toffee. tastes are melon, citrus, grain malts, grapefruit, mango. sticky palate.

Bulk_Carrier (4212) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a golden burnt amber color with a foamy to bubbly white head that quickens the pace of letting the lace of being messy all over. The aroma starts off with some sharp bitter pineu hops purely agitating a sly earthy sweet malt. Citrus hops slyly move in for a subtle balance. The flavor balances quite nicely between the piney bittersweet hops and citrus hops. Malt level seems to lay back a tad bit more. Pineyness grips the aftertaste and leads on into the finish. On the palate, this one leans to the lighter side between light and medium bodied. Low carbonation yields to the hops embracing a keen bitterness as the harshness punctuating my tongue. Overall, what a damn American Pale ale, that I would love to have again. Awesome in its entirety and purely substantial with whatever food one would want with it.

Fresh can. Clear burnt orange with a thick white head and great lacing. Aroma is a huge tropical overload. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and Citra hops. Taste is juicy with mango, papaya, grapefruit, orange, and pine. Very juicy with a dry finish. Outstanding.
