Golden/orange in hue, this beer has a nose that combines hops, bread, and pine. The foam is substantial and long- lasting, making its presence known from the get- go and leaving its presence behind in the form of noticeable lacing.
This beer has a taste that follows its nose. The flavors of pine and bread are most obvious, backed by flavors of sweet malt, biscuits, citrus, and crackers. The taste is a little less intense than the nose led me to believe, but the basic flavors are just as expected and the beer is very pleasant.
This beer isn’t quite an IPA, but is leaning in that direction; Hence the name, extra pale ale. It has an intriguing taste combination and seems like the type of beer that seasoned veterans and craft beer newbies will all find acceptable. The bread, pine, fruit, and floral notes are certainly there, but not overpowering and the beer is very non- pretentious.
I have only tried a few Gray Sail beers, but this one is my favorite in the bunch. Give it a try if you can find it- just be careful when you pour, as the foaminess can easily overflow your glass.

In a pint glass this beer was a dark amber color. There was a medium-sized off white head that left a bit of lace.
Aroma of citrus and flowers, as well as sweet malt.
Tastier than the aroma implied. Grapefruit and flowers. Strong malt background of caramel and bread.
A hoppy beer, but still very malt forward. Nice balance.
