A: Pours a nice clear copper with a thin but persistent off white head.

A: floral citrusy hops I the forefront with a nice caramel and toffee backbone, toasty malt compliment.

T: Nice floral citrus hop with a bit of pine and grapefruit. Some lemon zest and a bit of orange malt accentuate a nice biscuit, caramel and toffee base. Bright, clean flavors in this well balanced brew. Bread crust undertones. Bitterness is moderate and lingers a bit in a semi dry finish.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel with little to no astringency noticed.

O: A very nice and well balanced beer. Good complexity with a nice discernible hop and malt flavor. Clean flavors with a tiny bit of an English flare... but still shines as an APA. I'd buy this again.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 10/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, caramel, toasted bread, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, caramel, toasted bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, floral, grass, caramel, toasted bread, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, balance, and robustness of juicy citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale ale. All around good balance and complexity of juicy citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
