I'm a fan of the crisp, refreshing pale ale.This one stacks up well.
My first exposure was in a restaurant/bar in Ocean City MD - the only pale on tap. I remember being surprised, and years later remembered the label when I came across the bottle. I remain impressed!
This sits high on my list of drinkable American pales, alongside the likes of Troegs, Dogfish Shelter, and my newest fav, Wyld.
Primal is a bit more earthy on the finish - almost peppery. Very bold for a fairly low alcohol (5%) ale, but clean from start to finish. Tasty!

Pours a pale clear wet straw with ok head that fades to lacing fairly quick.
Smells of fresh sweet malt and piney hops. Not too impressive
Taste is a lot more impressive. An apparent pine hop that leads to medium pale malt sweetness that balance it out. Very nice. The bitterness isn't too much but good for APA
Mouth and drink are good for APA. Gonna drink a few of these tonight

amber pour with loads of carbonation coming up to the surface to form a nice little head of white that was about an inch or so high. nice lacing coming down the sides of the glass as well. aroma is nice and tight, clean piney hop notes give way to grapefruit, light lemon grass and a decent touch of simple malts. crisp, clean, and completely drinkable flavor has me from the first sip. really easy to put down and i could see myself easily drinking 4 or five. nice sharp bite of hops on the front which mellows into a very well balanced and lightly sweet buttery flavor, but keeps it all very, very light

A 12 oz bottle from Liquid Assets. I can't wait until Saturday and a visit to Evo...
A: The pale ale is a light golden color, a bright yellow color. Two fingers of white head were generated in the pour and laced nicely around the mouth of the glass.
S: Biscuity grains and citrus hops. The two competing aromas are well-suited to each other, neither one getting an advantage.
T: Ahh, a fresh pale ale. The hops zing out of the glass, citrusy and firm. They are paired with light cereals and grains, toasted just a bit. Low alcohol, or seemingly low alcohol, provides a boost. The floral hops, even though the ale is well-balanced, stand out.
M: The mouthfeel is toasted and grainy with a nice streak of hoppiness running through it. The floral citrus hops steal the day with their soft bitterness.
