shaped pint glass, no date
A- Big foamy head, 4 fingers, on an even pour. maintains cap, excellent lacing thick and consistent, like a good nitro stout almost. Color is a pallid amber, hazy.
S- American hops, piney, but not overpowering. I was expecting more due to the dry hopping. Not unpleasant, but not special. Like fresh pine wood sawdust almost.
T- Flat, in spite of the hopping. Initial hoppy tingle, lingering bitterness, some acidity, but nothing I can really tease out, and the flavors aren't really complex- just recedes into the bitterness really quickly, in an almost watery fashion. The bitterness isn't bad, but it just doesn't seem strong and in balance with any other flavors.
M- Thin, tingly initial carbonation, but disappears almost immediately.
D- an ok beer to drink overall. It's not offensive, nor great. Not something I would visit again since the hops just don't pop and the flavors just aren't as complex as I would like- fade into the bitterness just far too quickly and nothing to segue or balance it with. I do think I have an older bottle, 2007 of some sort, just don't know exactly, so if given a fresh bottle, I'd try again, but it doesn't keep well.

Enjoy By March 18, 2014. Another aged single purchased recently (two days ago) at a local liquor store. Check your freshness dates people!
a: Hazed amber with a huge inch and a half offwhite head which receded slowly to heavy surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Very mild fruit.
t: Caramel and bread malt up front followed by a light to moderate hop bite.
m: Medium, very good body, quite a bit of carbonation tingle.
o; A solid pale ale, probably not as well-flavored as when fresh, but still very drinkable and pleasant.

08/22/13 On tap. Pale ales are always full of surprises for me. Often they get overly hoppy, but that is not the case here. Not only is this an example of a well balanced brew it has a remarkably lingering aftertaste. I know this sounds weird but if you like a lot of hops, this may not be for you and if you hate hops, this is may not be happy spot either, but if you can appreciate a well crafted balance, somewhere between hop heaven and hell, put you money down on the D&I. IMO you'll get a better understanding of where I think the place hops have in this whole process.
