served it in a pint glass from a brown conditioned bottle with a green cap.
clear orange golden amber colour with white frothy head that fades to a thin sheet that leaves a nice web of lace down the glass.
the aroma is clean and refreshing with mild citrus hops,lite carmel malt followed by some grainy back ground .
the taste is so smooth and clean tasting with subtle citrus/pine oily hops,along with a great lite malt and grains flavor. simple .beautiful.
the feel is a light body with a slightly dry bitter hops after taste.
a classic beer one of the best pale ale out there on the beer market.if you haven't had sierra nevada pale ale yet ,go get one! if this was unfiltered it would bring this up to a new level in my book.

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.
