a less hoppy american pale, pouring a clear yellow color with a spiderweb lacey white head an inch high. the nose is light crystal and pale malts, dry and bready, with a mild fruity hopping. flavor is the same, nothing too intriguing here, but a very balanced and fresh tasting brew with some cut grass notes in the finish. crisp and clean, drinkable and refreshing, a sessionable brew. lots of bubbles, light light body. i wouldnt buy this because it isnt my type, but its yummy and down easy with a bowl of chili con carne.

12 oz. bottle, with a date that reads: "DOB 03/07/12" so it has been chillin in the bottle for a nice 8 months.

A - Pale orange, not extremely attractive looking. Barely any head that dissipates quickly and it leaves a ring of head around the top.

S - I don't really smell any of the 3 hops that was put into this, all I'm getting is straight up malt. Last time I had this beer I remembered it being hoppier. I'm going to let it warm up and see what that does.

T - Not really tasting much hops, mostly just malts like in the nose. Not really much flavor at all, which is disappointing since I remember being impressed that it was hoppy last time.

M - The mouthfeel is smooth and clean, which is more than I can say for the rest of this. I probably need to pick up a fresher bottle and see what's up with that.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in July 2012. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, pine, pineapple, bread, grass, herbal, and floral. Pretty nice aromas with good balance and decent strength. Taste of pineapple, grapefruit, orange zest, floral, grass, pine, bread, and herbal. Light crisp bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pineapple, grass, pine, herbal, floral, and bread on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of flavors, with a good hop/malt balance; a bit watery but still tasty; no cloying flavors at all on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very crisp and clean mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale ale. Good hop flavor profile with nice balance; extremely crisp and smooth to drink. An enjoyable and sessionable offering I would have no problem getting again.
