3.33/5  rDev -3.5%

American pale has a trace of light lace over a crystal clear straw yellow beer. Sharp biting bitter with strong hop presence is a really nice APA. Nothing particularly fancy but well brewed and brightly flavored. Traces of lemon and light citrus on the nose.

A- A dark yellow/ light orange liquid with a few streams of rising carbonation. The white head is massive and craggy and has some good retention.

S- Biscuit malt and a very crisp hop presence that brings to mind fresh celery. Reminds me significantly of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

T- Shockingly bitter, but has some caramel malt presence at the end that bring in some sweetness.

M- Bitter and dry that is also clean.

D- For my tastes, this is far too bitter for a pale ale. Overall, the bitterness brings down the drinkability some. The flavors are good and it is worth trying.

Yet another American pale ale that poured the typical clear, golden color with the foamy white head. The aroma is quite striking: a very nice blast of bittersweet tropical fruit. The flavor does mimic this with a long, solid American hop bitterness that you will really enjoy or hate. I did enjoy it but only wished it was complemented by more malt in the background.

The ale was light to medium with noticeable carbonation and a very nice bittersweet aftertaste.

This was good but does not standout from plethora of American pale ales on the market.
