3.58/5 rDev -1.1%
Appearance: auburn with thick off white head, great clarity
Aroma: a little coppery with citrus and floral hop character
Taste: solidly hoppy with citrus and floral hop character on the tongue and a caramel malt kick to balance. A strong bitter finish
Mouthfeel: like a normal IPA, medium body, medium carbonation, smooth but a little prickly
Overall: A fine ale especially when found on tap. Nothing ground breaking but definitely a solid choice at a bar lacking in diverse beer offerings. Bitter but with balancing malt character and a coppery finish.

A big shout out to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an amberish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is hoppy, citrus. Taste is bitter up front, hops, a bit of malts at the finish. None of the citrus in the smell is present in the taste. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass, date October 28th 2013.
Deep copper amber red and quite clear. Not much noticeable carbonation, and only provides about one finger of fine light tan bubbles. Does manage to stick around a bit with some retention, but settles to a good thin puck and thick collar.
Nice toasty aroma akin to brown ale, some mild hop senses (probably a bit faded) mixing slightly with some sticky caramel sensations that seem a little more downplayed. Mild sensing sweetness but the toasty bread sense dissolves into more caramel sweetness over time.
Mild caramel and nice grapefruit punch on the first sip. Steely and mineral finish with pine hop bitterness that really sticks. Good caramel sweetness with a nice thick and proportioned malt backbone. Nearly juicy with a good quenching hop citrus and tropical qualities.
Really diggin it, but perhaps past ideal prime, a beer worth revisiting but still a solid pale ale.
