While visiting the Boston area, I made it a point to try local brewery products and the Nantucket brewed Whale's Tale Pale Ale was the first contender.
This beer is rather dark for an APA; approaching Amber. It is easily the cloudiest commercial non-hefeweizen I've ever had. Lace does not hold on this lexan stemmed goblet (hey, I'm travelling - gotta make due with what I can get) but I don't quite know what to expect from this material.
Aroma is lightly citrus - tangerine, with some peach. Very nice, but subdued.
Bitterness is just about right, and the orangy hops show up just right. Finishes a little sweeter than I would expect for an APA, but it's nice. A little caramel sweetness finishes nicely.
Although the presentation is a bit odd from the color and haze, this is a tasty beer and I'd be pleased to have another pint - in a real glass this time please!

Poured a light copper, almost Amber with a thin head of light foam. Aroma was spicy with a sweet fruit note. Great carbonation helped bring out the bitterness of the hops very well and finished with a sweet caramel flavor. Very nice and refreshing.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted and slight sweet Maris Otter malt follow by herbal and slight orange citrus hops.
Taste: Chewy and crunchy bread, pale malts, herbal, and slight hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: As for an EPA, more earthy and fruity notes would be good.
