From notes on 11/9/13

This is ok. Basic pale ale. Not much flavor besides the hops, which is only ok. O’so definitely has better, but this is still ok.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours deep bronze with a lasting head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is piney, slightly citric with a grainy background.

The taste leans hoppy, but balanced with firm grainy malt. Pine, floral notes, some citrus with a grainy/honey sweetness. It has a crisp, dry-ish finish.

It is easy to drink. Smooth. Hits medium-bodied.

A nice APA that lands on the hoppier side of the spectrum.

Appearance

A golden honey color, off white/eggshell head. Moderate amounts of lacing slightly hazy

Nose

Light roasted malt, hops, pine, flowers, honey

Palate

Light and fruity, velvety mouthfeel, moderate hop presence, pine, decent malty presence,bitter finish

Overall

I’m very happy with this beer, it is one of the better IPAs in my opinion and fits what I like in an IPA perfectly. It has a sense of balance and harmony with all of the tasting notes that you rarely find in an IPA anymore. Perfect drinking man’s IPA for any occasion
