Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light orange/copper amber with a thin white head that dissipates immediately to tiny patches and a light ring around the glass which leaves light lacing. Mild aroma of caramel and biscuit malt, citrus hops; slightly vegetal and spicy. Flavor is light biscuit malt with light grassy hops, hints of earthy darker malt. Finishes with biscuit malt and light grassy hop bitternes. Medium bodied. A light, dry biscuit pale ale that is somewhat subdued and pedestrian. OK, but nothing really stands out in this one.

Pours out hazy amber.

Smell is very light. Light hops/malt at best but not much of a nose to it.

Tastes comes over light and crisp with a light and bready mouthfeel. Flavors are pretty mute and subtle. It serves best as a session ale or an easy drinker. Not the best pale ale I've had but a nice opportunity to try it.

I've had this many times in my life, on tap and out of the bottle. It's always the same. Here's the rest of my take on this.
Into a pint glass, it has a light orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing stuck finely around the glass.
The smell had a light citrus hop bitterness graced with a light earthy hops in the background.
The taste was pretty much the same.
The mouthfeel seems to be right on par as an APA, it's sessionable and somewhat crisp.
Overall, good APA I always love coming back to my craft beer roots.
