Wow. I went on a Pale Ale pilgrimage and think I found it. This had a very nice taste to open matching the initial smell. I bottle drank this and it was crisp with good hop taste mellowed by some slight piny taste. This won the pale ale competition hands down. Sad that I only drank two. Recommend this to anyone.

appearance - pale golden-yellow, not too hazy. nice finger or two of head.
aroma - floral, slightly piney.
taste - balanced. taste very similar to the smell- floral hops up front, a little piney. solid malt backbone to make this such a well-balanced pale ale.
mouth feel - medium body, smooth.
overall impression - this is my staple pale ale, i've been drinking it for years, but just kinda started reviewing beer. its a classic and i compare many pale ales against this one - which i think says a lot.
