Beer added by: BEERMILER12 on 02-29-2012

Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

16.9oz bottle shared with friends, poured into plastic cups. Golden orange in color with a two-plus finger off-white head that settles to a cap. Not much lacing, but probably due to the "glassware". Aroma is very nice: citrus, floral, and grassy hops jump out followed by a slight malt sweetness, mango, and tropical fruit. Taste is a muted version of the aroma. Good hop bitterness, light sweetness - just faded. Not an old bottle by any stretch - less than 30 days post-bottling, well inside the recommended 90 day window. Light-medium body, crisp but thin, thin, thin texture, moderate carbonation, dry, bitter finish.

Over all a good pale ale. Nice hop and citrus notes with the perfect balance of malt. I detect no alcohol. Mouth feel is a little thin. This beers only down fall.

A true Pale Ale and perhaps the best one I have ever had.

Look, aroma and taste were all solid. Feel was, as many have described, somewhat light. The finish was interesting. Dry with an almost peppery aftertaste. Overall, I thought it was just okay.

Poured a one finger off white head that disapated fairly quickly. I was pleased with the decent lacing. Unfortunately though I was disappointed with the smell. I couldn't grasp what it was exactly, but was unpleasing to me. Fourtunetly, that smell did not carry over to the taste. Which I found quite pleasing with sweet citrus flavors that finished with sutle hints of pine.
