A: hazy; amber-darker than I expected; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to a thick cap; thick lacing;

S: clean; light malt; noble hops; in spite of the color, it smells like a pale ale; must have used a dark grain bill to give it color, but no aroma;

T: earthy with citrus undertones; a touch of caramel behind that; finish is moderately bitter with a bit of grapefruit;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; crisp and dry;

O: very nice pale ale; a lot going on;

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A - Pours a mostly clear orange/copper with a smooth, one-finger, off white head with good retention. Really nice sheet of lacing.

S - Moderate strength aroma of caramel malts, spruce, and earthy hops.

T - Taste matches the nose, with piney hops taking center stage. Some hop fruitiness (lemon, lime) in the mid-palate. Slight mineral/metallic taste in the finish. Not very well balanced, as the malts fall way short of standing up to the hop bill.

M - Light bodied, with downright stinging carbonation. Could have used more body and less spritz in my opinion.

O - Not a big fan here. An unbalanced APA with some glaring flaws. One of the weakest of the Beer Camp 12 pack.
