A - amber to orange with frothy rich head
S - nice but subdued clean malt with a bit of hop. very classic pale ale
T - This beer is on the verge of being really good. All the components are there - they just don't stand out enough. There's a nice malt note, but its rather bland and timid. It finishes with a somewhat nice blended hop piney/citric flavor - but again its very bland. The whole effort just seemed a bit restrained. What I did like was you could tell the water was very good, and the beer has a nice smoothness and brightness to it. Its good but just almost like watered down.
M - good mouthfeel due to the nice quality soft water used and brightness of the hops and malt. Very smooth and glides across the palette.
D - its drinkable but because I kept being reminded of a watered down taste it didn't exactly make me want to imediately crack another. Man o man - if they just could amp this brew up a bit and make each ingredient pop a little more it could be a great brew. Seems flat, uninspiring, and bland.

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.
