Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect pint glass. Thanks to my buddy Todd for the Indiana > NY trade.
A: Beautiful, crystal clear, amber color. Mildly aggressive pour leads to a fluffy white two finger head that takes some time to go away and leaves a thick layer of lacing.
S: Woah - smells like an IPA. A really really nice IPA. Piney hops up front, caramel malt back end. This is a wonderfully smelling Pale Ale that really can't be understated.
T: Boom goes the hop dynamite. Hops up front, hops on the back end, hops hops hops. The malt is there to create some balance but holy wow is this the hop-heads wet dream of a Pale Ale.
M: Bitter back end, bitter aftertaste. The aftertaste doesn't linger but that's what makes this a great Pale Ale, not an IPA!!
O: Probably the best Pale Ale I've ever had. I'm a hop head and this is easily the hoppiest pale ale I've ever had. It's easy drinking, a perfect 6.5%. This beer is one I'll be getting a steady supply of as it's one of the best beers I've ever had.
