4.22/5  rDev +6.8%

Pours a bright clear copper with a nice frothy head. Aroma is light malt and hops. Light lacing left on the glass.

Taste is toasty malt and a fair amount of hops. Nutty, nice bitterness and fresh juicy hop flavor.

Mouthfeel is medium, clean, good balance, very fresh. Definitely one of their better standards.

Sampled on tap at The Covey on January 23, 2010. The beer pours a copper/orange color with a white head. The aroma is biscuity malt with some citrus hops. The flavor is similar with grassy and fruity hops as well as a nice malt backbone of British malts. You also get some light caramel malts. Thinner mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I should start by saying I am a "HOPHEAD" and this beer is as close to being an IPA without being one as any beer I have ever had.

Then aroma was very resiny and citric. Still some malt on the back to even out the hops.

The appearance is that of a typical Pale Ale and it was very clear. Nice quarter inch head on the ones I had and they stayed for the entire pint.

The tase is the defining factor for me with this beer. Subtle malty backbone and a very nice hop flavor. This beer had such a clear, clean hop flavor, I felt like I could almost pick the hops out of my teeth. Very resiny and grapefuity.

I personally think this is the best beer at The Covey and maybe one of the best Pale Ales I have had to this date.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

A- Reddish orange coloring with a decent amount of light brown head.

S- Has a very weak hoppy scent to it. Lacking in scent like most beers from this brewery.

T- Typical pale ale flavor, but not hoppy enough compared to most pale ale's.

M- Bitter, but still a pretty smooth beer as it is not as hoppy as other pale ale's.

D- Very drinkable beer, not too bitter.

Overall I enjoyed this beer, but it is not as bitter as I would expect a pale ale to be.

Pours a clear copper amber color with a short white head that fades into a moderate lace. Nose is floral and citrusy hops with a bit of maltiness in the background. Taste is lightly toasted malt and fruity hops with notes of pine and juicy grapefruit. Nicely done—I could easily go with this as a session brew.
