US pale ale poured a bright golden color with a good size head. There wasn't much of an aroma, some floral notes but very weak. The taste also a bit weak, but had a nice floral taste come through. A bit watery, but the flavor has just a hop like flavor. Overall not a horrible beer, has a straight up hop flavor.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear copper amber orange. Lots of rising bubbles and a solid three fingers of off white head with good retention. Leaves a lot of lacing sticking to the glass.

Smell: A fairly sweet aroma with some fruity citrus esters and malts. Hops upfront with some good hints of orange, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, and a slight hint of papaya. Also some herbal and piney hops. Mixed in is a quite noticeable malt balance with hints of bready biscuit, caramel, toffee, yeast, and crackers. A solid balance of hops and malts in the nose.

Taste: Like the aroma indicates, a balanced mix of citrus and earthy hops with sweet bready malts. Starts out with some herbal, earthy hops and citrus esters with notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon, tangerine, and a little bit of apricot and papaya. A strong malt balance comes in with notes of bready biscuit, yeast, caramel, toffee, and cracker. A nicely balanced and solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and pretty smooth.

Overall: A pretty solid take on a American Pale Ale. Nice hop kick up front with a solid malt backbone. Its what you expect from the style.
