Best before 8/10/11
A vigorous pour from the 12oz bottle into a new belgium goblet produces a 1/4" of soapy head. Color is a hazy, bright orange. Very attractive in the glass.
Strong, pleasant smell. Lots of biscuit, and toasted malt, with plenty of citrus hops. There's rye in there but it's the least noticeable smell. The rye does come through more as the beer warms, giving this one a really nice smell.
Flavor has the same elements as the nose, they just don't work as well together on your palate. The rye is a nice touch, but the malt flavor is a little muddled. The hops are there on the front of the tongue and are probably the best part of the flavor.
This is a very thin beer. Not the worst thing for a pale ale, but it could use a touch more body. Finish is quite dry with some spicy rye leftover after every sip. Nice beer, just doesn't quite hit in the flavor department.

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.
