First off I don't think BA gives this bad boy enough love, especially The Bros.
Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45°F
Appearance: Clear light amber color with a one finger off white head
Smell: Pine, citrus, sweet malt
Taste: Pine, citrus, bicuit from malts.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with substantial bitterness. Pretty full for an APA
Overall: If this was labeled an IPA I wouldn't have thought twice about it... Which is why this is one of my favorites APA's and I think is one of the better readily available beers in the style. Also light on the wallet (being found on sale regularly for around $26-$28 a case in my area) which makes for a great go-to. It's full bodied and the flavor is balanced. Can't go wrong with a Dales!

COD 4/21/14. Pours a clear almost medium amber with a nice dark ruby tint. Tremendous head with excellent lacing and retention. Very nice nose of tropical citrus hops over a pine and light caramel background. Medium body with an almost slick texture. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavors found in the nose, then rapidly flows to a pine focused hop bitterness over a slightly tart note. As the bitterness fades, a light caramel sweetness emerges in the effervescent finish. A tart pine bitterness with hints of spice lingers.
