A - Pours a color amber with s monstrous light tan colored head. Fantastic retention and very good lacing
S - Some lighter fruit notes (apples and pears) and a nice dry bitter piney hop aroma. A nice sweet caramel maltyness rounds out my quaffs.
T - nice tolerable dry bitterness up front followed by sweet apples pears and sweet caramel. Very common flavor profile but well above average. I think I was off on the pineyness.
M - lighter bodied, very drinkable. Still somewhat sticky on my palate.
O - very well done although traditional. Dry light crisp bitter hops, non citric fruits and a nice sweet malt presence. I dig it for sure.. good gateway brew

Sampled from a can purchased at Chevy Chase Beer & Wine.
Golden with good clarity and a thick off-white white head. There's a suspension of very fine particles but no ill effects. Aroma is citrusy hops with a hint of pine. Flavors follow closely with a nice citrusy bitterness and flavor. The bitterness lingers forever. A moderate level of toasted malt supports it well with a hint of sweetness throughout. Good depth. There's a moderate carbonation of very fine bubbles that give it an airy, creamy feel.
A solid west coast pale ale. I'll be back for more!

Deep copper color and clear. Frothy white head with loads of lacing and excellent retention.
Grapefruit and pine aromas. There's a healthy dose of caramel and bread.
It's a balanced APA, a tug of war between grapefruit and pine vs the sweet caramel. It's bitter but checked by the sweet. Finishes with some herbal flavors.
Full bodied and moderately dry. Ample carbonation.
It's a fantastic APA. Well balanced and pronounced flavors.

Thanks to cw577enfield for this one!
Absolutely gorgeous stuff. Murky but glowing honey golden body with a dense creamy bone white head that leaves perfect lace, retaining from start to finish.
Sweet, mild citric hops meld with cereal malts and some floral qualities. Nice.
Surprisingly abrasive on the palate. The relatively intense hop bitterness dries out flavors of marmalade, oats, pine and citrus.
A tasty option if you're thirsty for a pale.
