look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours with a burnt orange color. Half a finger of head on the pour which dissipated to the edges of the glass while drinking. Carbonation is above average for the style.

Smell: Light caramel and toffee jump out first with some floral hop notes in the background. Some slightly resinous pine opens up on the body with a lingering gummy sweetness. There is a maple syrupy sweetness lingering as well, unique aroma.

Taste: Chewy malts stick immediately to the palate. Taffy, grass, orange peel, and bitter pine come together on the body. Gummy malts pop up on the back end. The finish is lead and mainly dominated by bitter pine which dries out and gives off some herbal, earthy flavors.

Mouthfeel: A pleasantly sweet front is matched in intensity on the back end with heavy palate punishing hops. Carbonation fits.

Overall: Not something I would want to drink more then one per occasion, but a unique pale for sure. Certainly not another boring pale, so props for that.

On tap. In a pitcher. Poured in a standard pint glass. Clear dark orange-amber in color. Forms a moderate sized foamy head. Good retention; decent lacing. Aroma isn't much. Toast and caramel malts with some earth hops in the mix. Taste is s bit better. Mild caramel malts and a bit of juicy citrus hops before turning more earthy and bitter. Medium mouthfeel. Moderate bitterness - more than expected actually.
A rather drinkable amber ale (its not an APA, and to be fair the menu calls it an amber ale as well).

pint on tap at the brewpub

look is a deep amber orange, dark for an apa. smell is hard to pick up, but what's there is enjoyable: floral and citrus hops. taste is well hopped but has a good amount of roasted malts. there's oak, spice, pine sap.

tasty pale

Pour is a hazy tea brown with a smallish head that leaves a decent amount of lace. Smells quite earthy, herbal hop, even a bit grassy.

There is a distinctly earthy nature to the otherwise herbal-pine flavors. Medium bitterness. It is a bit light in the body, ample carbonation.

Good amount of flavor in an otherwise middle of road American PA.
