Amber color with an off-white thin head with short retention.
Light malty aroma with English hops and hints of earthy hops and caramel.
Flavor is much more intense than aroma. Taste of slightly toasted and nutty malts with lots of English hops. Earthy and caramel notes. Hints of citrus peel and fruits. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation.
This is a beef up English Pale Ale. Less sweet and more hoppy than its inspiration. I did like this American interpretation. Very sessionable.

Poured into a tulip glass from the 12 oz. bottle.

a: A beautiful dark clear amber, finger high white head dissipated to sparse patches of surface foam and a little lacing.

s: Mild malt and pine.

t: Fairly well balanced malt/resiny hops, leaving a rather bitter finish on the sides of the tongue. Tasty malt becomes more evident over time.

m: Moderate with lingering bitterness.

o: A good, hoppy pale ale.
