12 oz. bottle poured into a nonic pint, Drakes 1500 Pale Ale is a dull, brassy orange with an off-white head that leaves pretty heavy lace.
Smell is a big blast of grapefruit hops, spicy and resinous, some sweeter caramel malt. Love it, this is my kind of pale ale!
Taste is great, they are spot on with the IIPA hop flavor, really strong, but not overwhelming bitterness. Nice malty backbone makes up for the lack of heft normally found in hop bombs like this. Reminds me of Celebration but with way more hops, awesome.
Mouthfeel is oily and a bit chewy, medium bodied.
Drinkability is exceptional, wow. I love the huge hop flavor yet overall smoothness and light enough to really session. Super impressed with this beer.

4/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: pours an orange color with a 2" fluffy head that slowly fell. Thick lace painted the glass during the session.
Smell: oranges and a soft bitterness were the dominant aromas.
Taste: Caramel, orange, a bit of grass / earthiness, and a nice floral bitterness. Nicely balanced flavor profile.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and mildly dry late.
Overall: this beer was very easy to enjoy and tasted great as it seemed to be a super fresh keg. This can be a sessionable beer and can be enjoed with a variety of foods.
Serving type: on-tap
