2.83/5 rDev -21.6%
bomber bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass
Pours very clear. A dark butterscotch color with very little bright white head, and very few bubbles rising. Decent lace.
I get a little bit of a burnt toast smell, not much else.
Taste is mostly malt, slightly burned taste, then a touch of hop bitterness. Nothing spectacular going on here, but not offensive at all.
Mouth feel is thin body with a dry finish.
Overall, just okay.

On tap at the brewpub in Alpine.
Appearance: Clear amber with a small and short-lived head. No lacing.
Aroma: mild light malt with a hint of honey.
Flavor: sweet up front and only mild bitterness later on. A hint of honey. The flavor builds over time peaking in the finish. Very malty for APA style.
Feel: Light-medium body with near medium carbonation.
O: a mild but tasty and enjoyable APA.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Simple pimple. No obvious bottle dating.
A golden amber, almost brass but hint of orange color to the body. Really sparkling clear. Some fast rising carbonation to go with it also. Head is a real nice strong and bright white fluffy three finger simple head. Big retention, and nice cap with island and peaked valley clumps for the top.
Bouquet is an interesting mix. Soft grains, faint sweetness of toast and powder. Very musty though, with a minimal hop somewhat floral presence. Unique, but somewhat off putting.
Palate comes really nicely. Big sense of controlled malt, and the sweetness hints towards fruity ester and perfect balance of crackling and chewy toasty malt. Hints of toasted bread and white sugar but not overly sweet, with a hint of caramel. Big bakery dry finish too with much of the sweetness coming. VEry controlled but also noticeable bitterness on the finish and hinting of fruit grapefruit, orange and citrus, with a slight cookie biscuit.
A real interesting pale ale, very enjoyable, from a great brewery.
