I had a couple of pints of this on tap at the Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe earlier today. I've had some of their other brews and found them to be lacking in flavor (Sunbru and Kilt Lifter) or over hopped for my palate (Hop Knot). The 8th Street Pale Ale was just right. Very well rounded and balanced. I'll be looking to get this at my local grocery store.

Appearance
It was on tap and filled to the brim of the pint glass, so its kind of hard to say. Light copper color. Not that much visible carbonation. Good lacing.

Smell
Malts and floral hops.

Taste
Malts and floral hops. Perfectly balanced. Clean. Not bitter.

Mouthfeel
Very smooth and drinkable. Good, solid, medium body. Clean finish. The hops are floral in character, so the finish was not that bitter or dry. Goes down super smooth but has body and character.

Overall
A pretty awesome beer. Well done Four Peaks. Balance and clean flavor are the hallmarks of this brew. Wonderful hop character. Good body. Smooth, flavorful, and satisfying. Definitely worth trying if you go to either of their pubs or see it in a store.
