3.78/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Just a tad more than two fingers worth of clean crisp airy audibly fizzy bone white colored froth comprised of huge chunky bubbles... Really good retention ultimately gives way to a full even veil of moderately thick lacing... The color is a pale medium gold... A moderate bit of moderate paced medium sized carbonation bubbles some of which cling to the sides of the glass... Some lacing clings to the sides of the glass...

S - A real pleasant aroma... A grassy hop presence is at the forefront... There is also a subtle toasted malt presence... Simple straight-forward, but rather effective...

T - The earthy hop bite is again at the forefront... It never over powers, but it is constant throughout... A light metallic tinge lingers beneath the surface... This all sits a top of bready malts and toasted malts...

M - Medium bodied... Moderate carbonation... Clean and crisp... Just a touch of stickiness... The finish is ever so slightly dry... Spry and lively throughout...

D - A rather pedestrian American Pale Ale that has a tad more hop bite than most... Nothing remarkable nor nothing off putting... I absolutely love the label which is a collage of random used concert ticket stubs... A decent enough brew that I would gladly indulge again if provide the opportunity, but I'm not sure I would invest in a six-pack or case in the future...

Poured into a nonic a clear lighter dull golden with a fluffy,sticky one finger white crown atop,the bottle says to decant into a glass,I saw no need.Aromas of grassy/herbal hops over top of nutty malt,not real big but pleasant nose wise.Herbal notes along with a tinge of red onion on the palate,a little tea and mint is noticable,a firm lightly sweet nutty biscuit base holds up to the hops.This a nice APA not gigantic hops but a minty herbal approach that makes it really drinkable,the maltiness is big enough for non hopheads to like this beer as well.Nice job here.
