look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a very pretty hazy golden, orange in the middle, straw towards the outside of the glass. 3/4" head that leaves quickly but leaves lacing.
smell of lightly toasted bread, medium light malt,yeast, tangy hoppy note.
taste, pale malt, perfect compliment of hops
medium light body, medium carbonation
how does mediocrity earn a 4.25? sometimes you just want a perfect, simple pale ale and this is right on the nose (409 characters)

12 oz can from the brewery in a mixed sixer (only available on site) . Poured into a SAPP glass.

A - very pretty. Hazy golden orange. Nice and bright. Tan - white head about two fingers. Good lacing.

N - sweet and hoppy. Lemon notes. Kind of flowery.

T - follows the nose. Quite hoppy with grapefruit and sweet pine. Toasted biscuit background. A bit too hoppy to call really well balanced, but it isn't too unbalanced. Pleasant with some bite.

M - smooth. No surprises. Bit of an aftertaste but nothing bad.

O - very satisfying pale ale from my hometown. Cheers! (568 characters)

Consumed 11/30/13

Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-gold color - small, off-white head, fades to a small collar and leaves some nice lacing

Smell: Citrus and some pale malts, pretty standard for the style - floral and candy-like - candied oranges and grapefruits - citrus is kind of strange overall, seems oddly extract-based, almost artificial - some grass as well - pale, caramel, and what smells like a hint of amber malts

Taste: Bitter and hoppy, but the hop profile is rather strange - straight-up bitterness, oily orange and grapefruit rind - bitter, candied citrus pith - sticky, oily bitter aftertaste - malts are mostly caramel, with some lighter, paler notes and some more toasted notes - above-average sweetness, which doesn't work well with the bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation, smooth at first, but the sticky, oily aftertaste is really not what I'm looking for in an APA

Overall: Yeat?

There are lot of charming, easy-drinking American Pale Ales out there. This isn't one of them. This tastes like it kind of wants to be an IPA, but the hops are oddly candy-like and inexplicably bitter. I think some may appreciate this unique profile, but it's not really what I'm looking for. (1,216 characters)
