4.48/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

From fresh growler from a fresh tapped keg (I watched him tap it).
Maybe its just me but I like my beer bold and cold to start! Its going to warm up (most likely).
A: This is perfect. Side pour into a tulip. Lots of aggressive head eggshell white in color. Giant. A bit went over the side of the glass as it exanded. Dissapates into a cloud-like pillow in the glass. Cool! Lacing is very nice and sticky. Clear. Beautiful gold in color! I really like this and expectations are rather high. I am watching the head and its incredible. Giant bubbles. Foam. Everything in between. Perfect.
S: This beer has body. I like that, even in a Pale Ale. When I nose it, it has a stronger scent than any other pale ale I remember. Thumbs up. When I smell it I think its quite hoppy and bready.
T: Nice. Light and crisp. Hop on. Pine citrus etc as it warms. Malt balances it out and lets it respite as a serious beer.
M: This is the only area I am sketchy about. Its bites. I was hoping for a little creamy.
O: This is the best pale ale I have had so far. I love bold beer. This fits the bill.

Serving type: growler
