Had on tap at Hilliard's. Review from notes.
A: Pours a clear orange/amber color with a very small head that reduces to a thin ring quickly. No lacing to speak of.
S: Not an overly hoppy aroma. Some toasted grains and caramel with light pine and a bit of tropical fruit zest.
T: More toasted malt with some toasted nuts as well with grains and some faint grass and orange zest.
M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: An ok APA. Had it since everything else is readily available in can. Liked the Hilliard's space though, very cool industrial feel.

on-tap, at the brewery
I've enjoyed many a pint of the Nautical Reference, often paired with something from a food truck parked out front. In the era of dumping a farm full of Citra hops in a beer and still calling it a pale ale, this may not excite the average BA. That's fine - it's an extremely solid creation in the spirit of what a Pale Ale used to be - grassy, layers of toasted malt, earthy green hops. It's honest, versatile and refreshing.

draft at the brewpub
a: served in a brewery logo can glass, golden orange in color with a finger deep bone white head that falls back to a thin ring
s: pale malts with a bready, slightly toasted aroma, nicely grainy, hops open with sappy pine and citrus rind
m: lighter bodied with a crisp medium carbonation
t: flavorful body of pale malts, touches of grainy bread and hints of toast, hops bring a moderate vein of citrus rind and a touch of pine, restrained but balanced bitterness, good stuff
o: a pleasant pale ale with an extra little dose of character from the chocolate malt, drinks well
