Honey colored beer makes a valient attempt at head but just can't hang on for more than about ten seconds. Whats left of the head hangs on for dear life as lacing. Virtually odorless. Citrus notes add a tang to an otherwise slightly bitter pale ale. The rye, which isn't as pronounced as I was hoping sneaks out at the end makes itself known in the aftertaste. Don't let the numbers lie to you, its all about the taste with this beer, and if you like Pale Ale, its definately one you should taste.

On tap, beautiful copper clear color, thin head faded fast, good lacing though. Carbonation just right
Peachy aroma, fruity esters with hops present seemed just right for a local pale ale
Nice mild to medium hop taste. Nothing overwhelming, very balanced
Dry hoppy attack. Nice finish. Easy to drink
Overall I liked it, and I am not a hophead

3.76/5 rDev -1.1%

Pours copper orange with some creamy head and good lacing.
Smells sweet, soapy and floral with some tropical fruit coming through.
Tropical fruit, peach and citrus up front, with some rye spice following close behind. Pretty full body for the style and more sweetness than is typical in an APA. This is my last bottle of the sixer and I've also noted some bitter, metallic off-notes at times. Sort of coppery. But for the most part it's just pleasantly juicy and hoppy, although a bit big in body to have more than one or two of.
