look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/11/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep gold color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, light caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balances citrus/floral hops and pale/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, floral, grass, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant pale ale style. Good balance of citrus/grassy hops and moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Citrus, floral aroma and taste. Lower on the bitterness scale for an ale (~50 IBU). Taste has a bit of bready nature to it. An ale that can serve as either a dinner or a party option, with its lighter tones and texture. As a small, Pennsylvania brewery, Stoudts really holds it's own here.

(on tap at Pete's Famous Pizza)

A: surprisingly fantastic pour in a cold pint.... solid, rocky, cottony head - color of recycled egg crate paper... clear, golden liquid... lace left in broad bands, ample cover

S: balance of toasty, cereal-y malts and hop pellets.... mellow... unmistakable, straight-up APA

T: up front - nice, smooth, lightly-spicy hops... light-medium bitterness.... firm malt follow-through after each sip... malt a bit obscured in the background.... mild, mid-range crystal malt sweetness, but very naked flavor from it - like chewing on the grains

M: ideal lighter body and dry finish for the style... bit of a frothy wash from the foam

O: quintessential APA... quite well done... something to seek out in the summer

Serving type: on-tap
