A: crystal clear; bronze colored; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to a wispy cap; nice lacing;

S: earthy hops and caramel; balanced, but tilted toward the caramel;

T: well balanced through mid-palate; earthy with moderate bitterness at the end that lingers;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: a nice beer, but too much caramel and not enough hop character for the style;

On tap at Time Out. Amber-orange with no head thanks to the inept bartender. Carmel, citrus, floral aromas. Hop, pine, roasted malt, orange oil flavors.

Hazy orange color. Malt sweetness and some fruity hops. Good malt base here, a hint of floral hops, but predominantly fruity hops with just a touch of bitterness. Very good, bubbly feel. Really, really good pale ale!

First off, let me just start by saying that if they are classifying this as a pale ale and not an ipa, you could have fooled me.

Now, to get to the beverage, it was aboslutely beautiful upon pouring into a tulip style pint glass. A sparkling copper color with a nice thick 1 inch fluffy white head. Thick, sticky lacing follows all the way down.

The smell was extremely dank and pungent.

The flavor followed the nose, wow, this is full of dank, pungent, piney, hops flavor. Just a bit of malt to keep everything in check, not much though.

Medium bodied with a smooth and sticky mouth feel.

I really enjoyed this one at first (and still do), but it became pretty heavy in my stomach as I went. It probably didn't help that I had one of the larger Pint+ cans. This was good but not something I could see throwing back a bunch of.

Would drink again, but not sure if I would seek it out and purchase again. Unless it was a good buy at the time or I was really in the mood for it.
