I bought this on a recent trip to State College, PA at Kildare's Pub.

A nice amber colored APA, with a malty smell. A smooth APA, it was a good APA, not too strong and not too hoppy.

A good session APA. Not anything great, but it goes down easily.

3.25/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of floral hops, a touch of sweetness. Taste is mild, some hops up front, malts at thew finish. Not bad, but a bit bland for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent brew but nothing special.

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

A-Clear orange, not much carbonation, two finger fluffy head.

S-Good deal of earthy hops, some dirt as well as some malt.

T-Rather malty, earthy, caramel, dirt, but not much in they way of hops, tad unbalanced as well.

M-Light, not much carbonation and watery.

O-Short story; too much malt not enough hops to balance it out.

22 oz bottle. Pours orange with short-lived, thin, fluffy, white head. Aroma is of caramel malt, bread crust and piney hops. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of piney, herbal hops, biscuit and caramel malt. Finish is long and bitter. Very nice Pale Ale.

3.81/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A - amber with a soft, white head that has good retention

S - light malt, some caramel, mild piney bitterness

T - caramel, pine, some toasted malts, some citrusy notes, moderately bitter finish

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a nice, refreshing APA. It doesn't offer a dominant flavor, but it does have a decent, balanced character that makes it very easy to drink. I would like a bolder hop presence in my APAs, but I did find myself enjoying this one nonetheless. It's worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12oz. bottle poured into a curved pint glass.

A- a light amber color, lots of carbonation sticking to the sides of the glass. A small white head, that dissipated quickly.

S- Soapy. A bit of citric hops, and some malt sweetness.

T- Some floral and citric hops hit up front, a bit of balancing sweetness. Not much going on there. Pretty much run of the mill APA.

M- Aggressive carbonation for the style. Light to maybe medium body. Not overly dry on the end.

O- not bad, but nothing great.
