3.85/5 rDev -2%
First had: on tap at the Corner Cafe, Tequesta, FL
A good basic APA here. Clearish amber pour with a small cap of white head that displayed a bit of retention and nice lacing. Good melding of citrusy hops and caramel malts in the aroma. Similar taste, nice balance of crisp citrus and earthy hops with biscuity malts that lent a mild sweetness, keeping the bitterness in check. Medium body, easily drinkable. After a small taster, I had no problem going in for a full pour.

Had it on tap as part of a flight and then took a growler home which i'm drinking as i write this.
Pours a very petty amber, darker than your average pale ale, above average lacing.
Pine and a bit of citrus with a nice bit of malt in the back.
Hops are dominant in the entrance, pine and citrus like the smell, a hint of malty sweetness to balance it all out, delicious.
Very creamy for a pale ale, resinous but not sticky medium carbonation.
Overall a very good beer, super drinkable and very unique for it's class. Good job Tequesta, i'll be coming back for more.

Arrives a dark yellow, almost coppery in color. Small head, off-white in hue, drops to a film fairly quickly.
Smell is a piney hops note with lesser notes of citrus and malt.
Taste is aggressively hoppy for a 44 IBU beer. Some searching found some malt and citrus hints to go with the heavy dose of pine.
Aftertaste is a bit more subdued with a little juniper berry, citrus and malt fade.
Overall, similar to a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. A solid, American take on the style without getting all "west coast" on you.

On tap at the brewery, 1/26/12
A-pour is a clear orange amber with a frothy white head. Great retention.
S-biscuit malt with a strong citrus hop note. Nicely aromatic and appealing.
T-hop forward huge citrus and earthy hops but the biscuit malt base is very solid. Excellent balance keeps this in the pale category rather than IPA but this is my kind of pale.
M-medium bodied, crisp, dry.
O-excellent pale ale, love the hops. Great malt balance.
