Canned 8 January 2014. Tasted 10 Feb 2014.
Pours a nice clear amber. Two fingers of off-white head, fluffy and pillowy. Good retention and excellent lacing. Outstanding.
Smell started out bright and hoppy, with vibrant citrus. But that's gone quickly, leaving a faint mid-level herbal hoppiness. Well supported by solid caramel malts.
Taste is up and down. At times, I find it chalky and unpleasantly bitter. At others, I find it relatively clean and smooth. Wish I could have more of the latter.
Feel is medium-light bodied. Carbonation is mid-low level, consistent throughout. Nice.
A solid pale ale. I get hints of something really good, but they battle with or give way to less enjoyable elements.

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.
