Had this out of the bottle at Silver Dollar in Louisville. I thought this was a surprisingly average pale. Not a tone of hops or malt - I don't know if the idea here is that it's supposed to be more like a golden, a bit milder, but wasn't what I was looking for. It's fine, but maybe go elsewhere for a pale ale.

Pours a white fizzy fluffy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, hazy honey orange color.

Nose brings nice grassy noble hops, with a little spicy American touch to them, a bit floral, very touch fruity notes, faint malt base.

Taste starts with juicy malts out front, not a lot just enough for a nice base, followed quickly by grassy spicy hops, a bit earthy and leafy and even floral, again a mix of noble and American it seems, with a touch of fruity notes and very light citrus rind. Finish dries off as the juicy malt fades, gets pretty bitter but not a ton, with more lingering grassy leafy hops, that bring a bit more citrus peel notes and floral characters.

Mouth is med bod, nice carb.

Overall pretty nice, about what a typical APA should be, nice base malt balanced with good fresh hops, nice noble American blend, good bitter lingering finish, sessionable and tasty. Very enjoyable.
