This is the original, quintessential American PAle Ale, absolutely my go to beer, it's fucking delicious, entirely sessionable and widely distributed! This brew is a golden copper color with a nice white head some thin lacing left on the glass. The aroma is sweet and hoppy as is the flavour. The flavour is very well balanced. The malt is sweet like honey and contrasts the bitterness of the American hops perfectly. I don't see this as a world class beer to be sipped out of snifters or a beer to impress anyone. To me, its just a great beer that goes perfect with any occasion any time of year. As i said this is my go to beer i drink it all the time. Perhaps you should too.
