Poured from bottle. Colour is medium gold, nice lacing.

S - dry citrusy hops, grapefruit, caramel apples, sweet malt.

T - caramel malts, mild hops that kick more toward the finish. Grapefruit, dry, and malt dominated, with some dry earthy tones on the finish. It's mild allround.

M - pleasant mouthfeel, malty body, with moderate carbonation, semisweet feel, and a balanced finish.

Overall, a quite nice session pale ale, mild and too-malt forward though.

Bottled 10-22/drank 2.23, which I had caught this one sooner but it was still a nice beer. Not IPA class, but it still had a representable amount of hops aroma left in it. Malty, full thick carbonation, dark amber. Cheap, would buy again at this price, but will keep an eye out for a fresher batch next fall.

Dark amber body; thick, sticky head. Mostly malt aroma; some mild pine resin notes. Caramel malt flavor; crisp, piercing hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel; mostly dry finish.

A decent beer although it offers nothing new to the pale ale experience. Pleasant enough.

Nice floral smell from the hops. Smooth yet a very nice kick of hops I look for in my APA's. Overall a well crafted beer.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/22/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, apple, light pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, apple, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Good amount of pine and earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, apple, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, balance, and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and a light lingering bitter astringency after the finish; but not too bad. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good pale ale style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
