As far as pale ales go this is on the bitter end of the spectrum. Not bad but not one of my favorites.

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!
