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.
