3.34/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a Bell's tulip on 7/23/12

A) Deep honey-amber with faded tobacco highlights. Billowy three finger head collapses slowly to a 1/4th inch layer. A crackling upper tier of lace leads down to thick swaths farther down.

S) Compact aroma of notes of orange peel, musty grass, earth, caramel and biscuit.

T) Mild pine greets the palate with a comparably mild bitterness. Pepperings of dank citrus here and there. Earthy finish. Toasted biscuit with a hint of caramel sweetness.

M) medium-light body made crisp by a dose of high carbonation. The feel is kind of coating in a dusty way.

D) Not a bad beer despite being too malty for my usual fancies. I drank it warmer than fridge temperature; probably would have liked it better if I had it colder.

12oz bottle, best by 5/12/2014. Poured into an O'so snifter today, 3/24/2014.

App- Hazy light copper-orange body, one finger white head with good retention and thick, sticky lacing. Looks the part of a good American Pale Ale.

Smell- Dank, floral, grassy hops, a bit of citrus as well. Not much in way of a malt backbone. A little bit of caramel sweetness and that's about it. Hop-forward nose.

Flavour- True to the name, this is a hop-centric pale ale. Floral, dank hops dominate, supplemented by a little bit of citrus grapefruit. The pale malt backbone brings a bit of caramel and a musty graininess. Finish is a bit of citrus bitterness mixed in with some grassiness.

Mouthfeel- Thinner bodied, on the verge of watery. But easy to drink, bitter enough but not overwhelmingly bitter that it gets in the way of my enjoyment as a "just-got-home-from-work" beer. Resinous, dank and appropriately dry.

Overall- Good drinking, nice and hoppy APA. Not mindblowingly good, but a solid buy for an everyday drinking APA.
