Poured a cloudy amber color with golden highlights when held to light and two fingers of fluffy off-white head. It's pretty good looking, though with maybe a bit too much head formation. Scents of bready malt, light fruity esters reminiscent of apple, light notes of tangerine flesh and a light level of floral and grassy hop aromas. Malty and delicate, with a low level of hop aromas and a moderate level of fruity esters overall. Far more like an English Pale Ale than an American. Flavor begins with notes of bready, biscuity malt with a touch of caramel and medium-light floral hop flavors. This moves into a slightly drier yet still lightly sweet middle with a moderate level of floral hop flavor, a touch of apple-like fruitiness and a bit of sweet malt. Finish lightly dry with moderate flavors of floral and herbal hops, a light touch of apple and a bit of orange peel. Aftertaste is dry with notes of floral and herbal hops and biscuity malt. The flavor profile is balanced and not overly hoppy, with flavors most resembling an English Pale or an older style American. Not groundbreaking, but pleasant. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with medium-low carbonation and a smooth feel. Nicely drinkable and true to style. Overall this is a serviceable Pale Ale. It's balanced in flavor and aroma, smooth and easy to drink. It's not the hoppiest or the most experimental American Pale around, nor is it the best simple pale ale, but it's good in its own way.

Appearance: Darker than I am used to for a pale ale. Pleasant amber color with a nice finger-worth of head. Smell: Not much to it for me. Some malts and grains and some hops as well. Taste/mouthfeel: Kind of fruity/citrus-y with a definite presence of hops. I am not normally a fan of IPAs, and this one, to me, was moodle of the road overall. It was tasty, but I won't buy it again.

Pours a nice clear copper color with a hint of read. Forms an inch or two of a tan head that doesn't stick around too long. It doesn't leave much lacing on the glass, leaves a thin layer across the top of the beer.

Smell seems to be malt, floral, pine, and a hint of caramel.

Starts out a touch sweet, reminds me a bit of caramel. A hint of apple. finishes with some floral and pine notes from the hops.

Feel is ok, seems a bit watery.

My impression is that this is a good beer, but not a great one. It has a decent amount of flavor, and nothing negative in it. My biggest complaint would be that it seems a touch watered down, like it is close to being very flavorful, then they got a bit timid and scaled it back. Had they just allowed the flavors to fully emerge, this would have been a standout. Still, it is pleasant enough, and a good beer for a hot day.
