Nice. Very nice. Will I drink it if offered to me in a social setting? Yes. Will my heart go "aflutter" when I discover this is all my host has to offer? No. Still, nice. Very nice.

Huge, frothy head. Leaves a great lace. Nice copper liquid. With just a touch of pungency, the rest of the smell is earthy pine with a tab bit of ripe fruit. The hop character is quite big for pale ale, and could easily be mistaken as an IPA. Piney goodness with a pleasant bitterness. I will certainly get it again.

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

A: Pours a copper color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a cap that laves some decent lacing

S: Earthy and lightly fruity hops up front, along with a solid malt backing. A little lacking

T: Starts off with the hops, which are again earthy and moderately fruity. Definitely a little more intense than the nose. Malts back up the hops nicely. Finishes with light/moderate bitterness with a light sweetness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid pale ale with great balance that goes down very well, especially for pushing the abv limits of an IPA. Certainly a standard for the style
