12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours an orange amber color. Just a dusting of head and light blotchy lacing. A bit of pine in the scent. A well-balanced pale ale. Nice representation of the style but not memorable. (8.0)

I liked this one!!!! Poured a clear copper color into a pint glass. Big frothy white head with good retention. Thick bands of lacing on the glass. Smell is not that robust, but it includes some citrus and floral hops. Taste is more pronounced. Good bitterness, Floral (or herbal whatever) hops and some citrus hops and some balancing bready malt.

Mouthfeel may be a hair light, but it is crisp with good hops "bite". At 6.2%, you could enjoy a second one!!! I would drink this again. Good APA.

Decent APA but a little hard to figure out, malt and hops need a tad adjusting. Interestingly, seems like a malty bite with a sweeter hop taste. Appreciate a hidden yeasty taste and like the hoppy ending but generally at times a little rough.

Nice color. Thin head. Generic flavor. Meh.

Pour a really nice copper color with a thick white head that sticks around for a bit, leaving behind some nice lacing.

Smell is a bit fruity, there's also pine and floral notes mixed in.

Starts a bit fruity up front, mainly some mild citrus notes. The hops make themselves known pretty quickly, adding pine and floral notes. Leaves a bit of a lingering hops flavor at the finish.

Fairly thick feel for the style, nice and solid.

I would call this an above average example on an APA. It is darker and has a bit more hops presence than I usually associate with the style. Not a bad beer, but being as I am not a big fan of hops, not one I'd drink a lot of.

Bought from Table & Vine in West Springfield, MA. From the Goose Island Flight Pack. Served in a glass goblet. The beer has a clear golden-amber appearance with little head retention and spotty lacing on the sides. Aromas included a sweet orange citrus flavor mixed with earthy tones. The beer tasted nicely bittersweet with a good balance of citrus and malts. Pretty good carbonation to the drink, which allows it to be refreshing and crisp. Overall, a good pale ale.
