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

A: Light copper, maybe a 1/2 finger's worth of head, with long retentin and a good amount of lacing.

S: A slight toasted, grainy maltiness on the nose, but the vast majority of the aroma comes from the grapefruit/citrus of the hops.

T: The taste doesn't deliver anything that isn't promised by the nose. The initial flavor is that of toasted cereal grains, a some biscuity notes. They are quickly swept away, though, by the aggressive hopping. The hops come through with grapefruit and an intense woody flavor. The finish is dry and crisp.

M: Fairly heavy body, bready and almost chewy in texture, with a decent amount of carbonation which brings a nice crispness.

O: A solid beer. It packs a lot of flavor, between the aggressive hopping and the intense bready malts. i would almost say that they over-did it if they really want to call this a "pale ale" Definitely a big beer, and it goes down easily.

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

Appearance: Strong copper color with some slight orange tint. About a finger worth of head on the pour which stuck around very lightly overall. Heavy lacing on the glass which stuck with each drink. Below average carbonation throughout drinking.

Smell: Light citrus front on this brew. Kind of a sticky malt body in the aroma. Some cinnamon sugary spices in the aroma. But overall pretty subdued.

Taste: A ton of malt. Some APA go on the hop side, this is not one of those. Very sweet molasses front which transitions into a syrupy malty body. The hops are felt on the finish, a heavily dry hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Dry, but at the same time some sugary sweetness going on here.

Overall: A decent APA. Goes hard on the side of malt for an APA but is a very solid representation of the style.
