Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a pint glass. Best by 12/24/14.

Color was darker than I expected. Coppery amber with a thin white head. Lots of sticky lacing that just stayed glued to the sides of the glass.

Aroma was weedy and grassy with some pine, but then more citrus as it warmed. Smells pretty hoppy for a pale ale. More like a light IPA.

Flavor was dominated by the fresh hops. More citrus than the aroma, but some pine and grass as well. The malt is barely detectable but provides just enough backbone to balance the hop profile. Finish is bitter and long for a pale ale.

Feel is medium and creamy.

Overall, a bit closer to an IPA than a true pale ale, but whose drawing that line? I really liked this beer and was sad to see the last of it in my glass.
