Tap at alewife
Nice creamy head, thick with bubbles streaming, clear golden honey color.

Nose nice fresh hops, floral and light spicy with a resin, nice light citrus and some grapefruit tropical fruit. Very nice hop aroma.

Taste starts with crisp ale, light malt profile. Then nice hop, floral grassy slightly spicy hop with a light citrus and very light grapefruit, grassy hop character. Bitterness is nice almost perfect for an apa, with decent malt balance. Finish is dry and crisp, nice lingering floral grassy hop bitterness.

Mouth us med bodied, nice carb.

Overall very good for an apa, perfect bitterness, nice hopprofile, good balance, crisp refreshing and very tasty.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A real nice looker of a pale, crystal clear, a perfect copper toned body with minimal carbonation capped with a nice tall three finger fluffy and off white head, with a big retention cap that stays for a good period of time. Nice looker.

Good hints of spicy toasted malt, a slight sweetness on the backbone not quite caramel thick, but feels like light brown sugar. Toasty. Airy. Inviting.

Palate brings a real wonderful hop forward and balanced light pale ale body. Light malts, with continuing hint of sugars and toasty cinnamon, but the hops come forward nicely. Staying in the pale ale realm, but a nice lingering hop bitterness in the finish. Earth and pine, with a perfect complimenting toasty malt depth. Hop angle builds real slowly on the finish, some more grapefruit hinting rind comes into play as well on the aftertaste. Good solid palate feel with nothing distracting from the tastebuds.

Really nicely integrated, light and easy drinking, but clocks in with an undescerning 6.3 abv you never would have guessed at. Real good pale ale.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 5/7

Pours lighter amber, translucent, some white foam rings and settles. Mild malty nose. Very soft. Light pale taste, some buried bubblegum, with a firm bitter, gritty hop. Medium carbonation. Most prominent feature is the bitter.

3.8/5  rDev -1.3%

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear copper color. A fluffy, off-white head of about two fingers is formed, and is slow to fade away. Nice lacing is left on the glass.

S: This is more along the lines of a piney/floral pale ale than a citrusy one, but even against my preferences, it works well. Sweet, nutty malts with a bit of floral hops stand out at first, before turning more in favor of the hops. Notes of butterscotch and black pepper help to round out the aroma.

T: There's a great maltiness on the opening flavors which set it apart from other pales. It's very well incorporated into the piny hop finish - and has a nuttiness to it most brown ales would kill for. Bitterness is high without being extreme. It's really well balanced, and not in that insipid manner most 'balanced' IPAs are, either.

M: At first, I wonder if the sweet malts will bother me, but they're nicely cleaned up on the crisp, dry finish. A bitter linger of hop oils accumulate. General drinkability is excellent, too.

O: I half expected some gimmicky, mediocre pale ale more interested in B'more pride than actually being a good beer. I was wrong. Compared to the last beer I had before this (a session IPA brewed with highfalutin' Simcoe and Citra hops - I won't say which brewery, but it sucked ass), this is a damn revelation. These guys brewed a solid pale ale without resorting to trendy hops: Full Tilt could be a brewery to watch in the next few years.
