On tap at the Plano Gingerman. The beer pours an orange-yellow color with an off-white head. The aroma is strong on the orange hops with some caramel malt mixed in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of orange with some piney hops mixed in. The strong caramel backbone keeps the bitterness level low, but still allows all of the hop flavors to come through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Dark gold (6+) draft pour with no cap and no lace; good clarity. Pineapples aroma. Pineapples and light hop flavors. Medium lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Overall, a light, juicy, tropical fruit linger That is quite enjoyable.

Appearance - This brew pours a transparent golden orange color, and produces a 1 1/2 finger head. As the head dissipates it leaves behind moderate lacing.

Smell - The smell shows off the malt build - malty, bready, caramel, and crackers. There is a note of distant bittering hops. Strap yourselves in - get ready for a malty pale ale!

Taste - I really like how this pale ale stands apart from the other pale ales here in Texas. It has malty front end leads nicely to a pleasant bitter finish. More English style in it's approach I would say. Very striking, there aren't too many pales out there like this. Notes of toffee and caramel in the front. Almost pinelike in the finish.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is pretty good here. There is a bitterness lingers after the brew washes over the tongue. Prickly carbonation. This brews is neither oily nor sticky.

Drinkability - The drinkability on this pale is pretty good. There are a lot of choices when it comes to pale ales in Texas, but this is a very unique Texas pale. Nice malt build with a bitter finish - 'nuff said.
