Big thanks goes out to stopbarking for this one in the LNBA BIF. You rock danny boy. Now go make me some wings.
Pours a nice looking glowing amber/orange color. Nice fluffy white head retains quite well and leaves good lacing.
Nose is candy sweetness with massively piney hop resin. Sugary sharp smell.
Whoa! This is tasty stuff! A great blend of candy sugar like malt sweetness and pine hops. Very unique flavor. This is a very nice pale ale. An odd sort of sharp candy sugar flavor through the middle, but I like it. The hop profile is right where it should be in a pale. This defenitely rivals Dale's for one of my favorite pale ales. Nice dry finish without being unrefreshing.
Mouthfeel is just about right, maybe ever so slightly thick. Carbonation is perfect. slightly soapy.
Drinkability is very very poundable. Would love to get my session on with a few of these.
Overall a very suprising and respectable pale ale. One I would SURELY revisit if it were local. If you like Dale's pale or any good pale for that matter, give this one a shot. A very unique and enjoyable session brew. Great. Thanks again to the one and only stopbarking.

Pours a hazy amber color with a thick creamy head.
Aroma is faintly hoppy with alcohol more noticeable as it warms. Some malt and a little fish sauce in there.
Taste is caramel malt with hop bittering and a metallic finish.
Good carb with a sweet sticky finish.
Would buy again.
