look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

I believe this is a single hopped pale with warrior. Had it at the brewery.

Clear gold in color. White head.

Aroma is dank and hoppy. A lot of pine and grapefruit citrus. A bready malt backbone.

Pretty sticky. Ends with a hop resiny aftertaste.

Overall, this was a really nice pale. Very fresh and hoppy.
Definitely worth a try.

12 oz. can poured into tulip

(Jan. 15, 2014 bottled date printed on bottom of can)

L: gold, clear with big thick head of white foam, almost a full inch tall and sticks like glue at the top, not a ton of lacing on the way down, but it keeps a super-thick white collar of foam; brew isn't crystal clear, has just a little haziness to it, but it's still very easy to see through it

S: grapefruit light ... it's like a big grapefruit bomb with some sugar added to tame the bitter, astringency

T: follows the nose 1 to 1; a mini-grapefruit bomb, tons of bitter citrus hops that have a quick and pronounced fruity sweetness in the middle of the bitter ... it's like citrus hops candy

F: full for a pale ale, good carbonation for drinkability

O: LOVE IT! i was thrilled to hear Karbach was going to make a pale ale ... I much prefer the sub-6% ABV world of American pale ales/IPAs/DIPAs, and this hits the mark as well as any APA I've tried -- big huge hop flavor in a much more sessionable form. i'm tempted to give this brew all 5s because it truly is EXACTLY what I want from an American pale.

4.01/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours out with just a bit too much froth at first, but the head eventually settles down and displays great staying power, leaving sheets of lacing on the wall of the glass

Smell: Shortbread malt with a nice hop kick, featuring floral, tropical fruit and pine tones

Taste: Balanced between the shortbread malt and the floral, tropical fruit and pine hop flavors; after the swallow, the hops become a bit more assertive, moving toward a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very drinkable APA; this would be a standard in my fridge if I had a standard beer

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity

12oz can poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

A- Murky orange with a two finger, foamy, whit head that holds strong. Lacing is that of soap suds.

S- Spicy hops, light citrus, lemon grass, bread, malt, and bitter hops.

T- Bitter hops, a little soap, orange, grapefruit and sweet malt. Very well balanced between hop presence and malt, but still showcases the hops well.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Hops linger on the palate. Would pair well with almost any meal.

O- What a good pale ale. It's nothing crazy but it's very solid. Glad I got to try it.
