12 oz bottle from a mix 12-pack, undated but purchased near the brewery just yesterday.

This is a fine and fine-looking beer. Deep reddish amber body iscovered by a durable and creamy tan head. Excellent lacing.

The aroma and flavor are both less hop forward than the classification as an APA would lead you to expect. In this case, I think it is more due to the larger load of sweet and medium roast malts than to a shortage of hops. In any case, the beer is sweet up front and only mildly bitter in the aftertaste, with at least as much roast and caramel malt flavor as there is hops (Cascade and Fruggle in this case).

Good mouthful, with creamy smoothness and soft carbonation that givs the impression of a full bodied beer.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

Pours dark amber, close to copper with a 1 finger off white head. A good amount of carbonation is present in this one. Good mix of malts and hops in the aroma. Hints of citrus are hiding, overall smell leans toward bready side. Right off the bat this tastes boozy. It's not at 6.0 ABV, but somehow it feels more. This is very different beer then most pale ales I've had. It's darker than most pale ales as well, Three Floyd's Alpha King shares the darkness. It's a lot heavier to drink than it should be, but this brew just has a special place in my heart.
