I did click had but this beer deserves a full review

this is one of THE bench mark beers
not only for American craft brewing but also as a world class beer.

Pours a delicious almost lemon yellow golden body with a huge Bolshie white frothy head that settles down put stays the course.

The bite of the hops is unrestrained in the aroma backed up with malt biscuity notes and sea breeze.

The flavour of this beer just lands on the tongue to perfection, a big hop hit without overpowering the floral tones and peppery bites.

Perfect, I mean perfect carbonation.

Glorious if you don't like this classic beer then you don't like classic beer.

Rich, golden amber in appearance, this American classic poured into my Dogfish Head ale glass with a massive head and seriously huge lace. Superb.

Nose was delicious pine and citrus. No mistaking the hoppiness here. Yum.

Taste was more pine, some grapefruit. But while this may imply a more IPA-style flavor profile, SN Pale Ale's bountiful malts give this hops character a superb sense of balance. Exceptional for the style, and a superior beer.
