3.49/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into SN hop glass.

A: Pours a dark amber with a huge, billowing, fluffy, and greasy looking vanilla colored head that took forever to collapse into thick and oily film. Rocky chunks of sticky lace was left down the glass.
S: As expected, hops dominate the nose. Tangerine citrus and slight tropical fruit nectars come through. The hops are resinous and fresh smelling.
T: Hop oils, citrus, and cantaloupe hit first followed by caramel and amber malt. The finish is herbal and there’s a touch of tree sap, and the aftertaste is bitter with citrus rind, tobacco, and resin. Leafy hops and tobacco leaf linger long after the swallow.
M: Medium-full body, greasy and oily resinous mouthfeel, soft and fluffy carbonation. The finish isn’t necessarily boozy, but the bitterness is a bit rough around the edges.
O: Definitely a potent and hoppy beer for a pale ale. Flavors are exceptionally resinous. Drinks well but it could be smoother.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: A muddy brown copper color with a small head.

S: Hops of a different smell, at least for SN.

T: Nice hoppy pale ale here. One of the better pales I've had.

M: Even carbonation, a bit frothy.

O: Great for a pale ale. These are starting to run together though.

3.6/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours out a deep amber with a thinnish head. Aroma is strong with toasty malts and citrus hops. Kind of a toast bomb in the nose. The flavor is also big on toastiness. Not into that. I pick up some good caramel malts, nice citrus hops, fruity esters. The toast is still a little overbearing. Mouthfeel is smooth and a bit creamy. This is a good pale ale, but this is no SNPA. Can't improve upon perfection.

12oz into SN IPA Glass.
bottled on 05/15/14

Clear, coppery orange with a thick, foamy off white head with nice retention and lacing.

A nicely balanced mix of lightly nutty, bready malts and fruity, lightly floral hops.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

Nothing particularly mind blowing, but certainly a delicious beer for the Pale Ale style.

3.98/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass. Liquid is a clear amber-orange, with a moderate amount of bubbles rising quickly, and a two-finger nearly white head that leaves sheets and sheets of lace as you finish the beer.

Aroma is tropical fruit, with a sweet toasted malt background. I get a little bit of raspberries as well. Super super fruity, although not orange and grapefruit like most (I)PAs.

Taste starts off with the fruitiness, along with a bit of an herbal bite. Lots of tropical fruit mid-palate, and then the finish is tropical fruit along with toasted malts, and a bit of a resiny caramel flavor comes out on the aftertaste. Not the hop assault I was expecting, but a nice, balanced, interesting flavor profile. Mega tropical fruit - mango, guava, etc.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick, with a ton of prickly carbonation. Works well with the flavors.

Overall, not what I expected, but really nice! Well-balanced and interesting.
