Poured from the bottle into a shaker pint glass, snagged from a mixed pack. This pale ale is a coppery brown color with a decent amount of biege foam, maybe two or three inches upon initial pour. Aroma evokes some dark bread, musty grape, hints of citrus rind (mostly lemon). The malts are more assertive on the nose than the hops. Ditto on the palate. Initial taste is dark crust, some caramel, nut shells or old rancid walnut meat, dusty white peppercorn, lemon and watermelon rind but these are particularly subtle. There's a hint of hard candy fruitiness and some peppery spice but surprisingly little hop flavor for an APA. Rather tannic as well, with some grain husk emerging in the dryish finish. Highly carbonated and on the thin side for the style. I don't know, I am not sold on this one (or this brewery for that matter). It is too malty and in a coarse "cheap lager" way, and the hops are OK from an earthy bitterness standpoint but rather lacking in the flavor department.
