The color is the standard amber in the pint shaker. Foam is modest to start and dissipates without much provocation. A snappy, malty mouthful to start, makes a good first impression. Average carbonation.

On the tangy side. There is a persistent plasticky note that is the big discord. The hops just seem to be biter. Not much in the way of aromatics. And the stuff is pretty flat before the pint is half finished. Actually, I didn't finish the pint anyway from the harsh, bitter flavor that overtakes anything pleasurable.

Quite bitter in the aftertaste. This seems more than a little over-hopped. There are so many good Pale Ales from everywhere I think this one needs to be retooled.
