4.14/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed on tap at Bier Station poured into an "imperial" 20 oz nonic pint glass. It was tapped the day before, so it's nice and fresh. I have to say that I *love* the use of negative space on the label. The foreground shows a hop farmer with runners of hops on either side, framing a field of hops in the distance, which also happens to give the impression of a beautiful glass of beer. Great stuff... but anyway, onto the beer.

Appearance - A golden amber hue with orange highlights topped with a generous two-finger head. The foam is frothy and just barely off-white, and takes quite awhile to dissipate, leaving quality lacing.

Smell - Intoxicating and aromatic, but subtle. I detect notes of citrus, floral hops and some hints of pine as well.

Taste - Delivers on the light but distinct promise of the smell. Faint citrus zest, piney resin and subdued hop bitterness. Enough to balance with the grainy base. The only issue I would take is that the flavor could be a tiny bit more pronounced, but it's a minor quibble.

Mouthfeel - Effervescent carbonation and a light body, but avoids getting into watery territory.

Overall a fantastic summer pale ale. This is what American pales should be for warmer weather. This one has instantly moved up near the top of my choices when it comes to APAs.

Bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Dated 8-21-14, so must be a "best by" date since this is still July. Medium orange body with a light haze. Two finger off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly but leaves a bit of lacing.

Wow - nice aroma for an APA. Heavy fruit notes that seem to be a blend of many types of fruit including citrus, tropical AND a peach note. Very light malt note in the background.

The taste follows the aroma but I expected it to be a little sweeter based on the aroma. But, that's OK, the flavor rocks. A light hop note that is little more grassy than piney gives the sweet hop and malt flavors a balance.

Medium thickness in the mouthfeel and no obvious notice of alcohol. I really like this and will be seeking it out.
