4.35/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle into pint glass. Bottled on day 361 of 2010 (December 28?) I would prefer to review a fresher bottle, but this is what I have in front of me.
Appearance: A classic look. Thick soapy head that hangs around for awhile on top of a light golden body.
Smell: Not overpowering in the least, albeit slightly metallic.
Taste: Ahh, as good a pale ale as you will ever taste. Slight piney hop profile with a full body. I think I actually prefer the taste straight out of the bottle - habit maybe?
Mouthfeel: Full mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. Smooth operator.
Overall: Probably one of the most sessionable craft beers I have yet to come across. I could drink this all day. Again, a classic.

Keep in mind that I am more of a stout/porter/dark brew fan than I am of ales and lagers.
Still thought this was great. The appearance was beautiful - poured a deep golden amber but did not have a very thick head, thin and white with no lacing at all. Would have rated Appearance at least 4 if it had more persistent head/more lacing. We'll see if the next bottle is any different. Smelled kind of. piney in a way. Smells hoppy. Spice-y. Smells good. The taste is one of my favorites for a pale ale. Absolutely perfect blend of hops and malt. Got a hoppy flavor which transitions into a bready spiced barley kind of flavor. Finishes a bit dry. Light-medium bodied, closer to the light side. Slightly above average carbonation. Overall I'd say a 3.75. High drinkability, might purchase again if I'm ever in an ale mood.
