Pours a slightly cloudy copper color. Faint floral hop aroma. Taste is light to medium bodied, pretty good mouthfeel. Nice balance and pretty good flavor for a pale ale. Not the most exciting style but this is one of the more tastier pale ales out there. High drinkability and a great session beer, one of the better ones in the mixed sampler 12 pack.

Pours a semi hazy tarnished amber with an off white head and lots of visible carbonation.

Sweet caramel upfront with some toffee. This only lasts for a second though as hops attack your mouth almost immediately. A big piney hop bomb fills the mouth making for a nice dry and crisp finish. Touches of grapefruit and citrus along with some floral notes. Nothing out of the ordinary but quite the hop bomb for a smaller beer. Flavored more like an ipa. Quite delicious though for a sessionable beer. Huge flavor.

Off tap this beer was a clear, amber color with two fingers of pale khaki-colored head. The retention of the fluffy cap was so-so but it did leave lacing in broken bands. The aroma was of grapefruit zest and distinctly floral hops. The flavors were similar to an American IPA but not quite as bold. Though the floral hops were still present I also tasted green grassy hops, some citrus zest which gave it a bit of a tang followed by the malt core that had notes of oiled leather and wood. The finish was quick and a bit twiggy/herbal from the hops. The mouthfeel was creamy, the body medium and the carbonation a bit too high/prickly.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass

A: Pours a hazy orange-brown hue with a thin, white, 2-finger head that slowly dissipates into a solid persistent lace and leaves a nice trail all the way down the glass.

S: Decent hop aroma with a fruity ester background and slight pine scent. Very mild aroma – nothing overwhelming yet pleasant to the nose.

T: Slightly sweet and bitter flavor with a nice hop presence. Very smooth and great aftertaste.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Solid Pale ale. Very well balanced and went down way to easy.

A- Dark orange beer with a two finger off white head. This beer had quite a bit of sediment flowing throughout the glass, mixing in with the carbonation bubbles. Took a few minutes for the head to die down.

S- Citrus and floral hops with a sweet piney backbone. Really an enticing aroma.

T- grassy and hop filled. Getting some toasty citrus malt flavors. A touch bitter but it keeps your palate moist. Doesn't dry out the palate.

M- Medium body, crisp and pleasant.

O- A little more bitter than I would have expected. Definitely one of the more pungent Pale Ales. Good flavor but still up there in the hop range.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark golden amber color with a very small white head, but that has some major staying power. Smells of sweet malt and hops but not overpowering. Much of the same in the taste, nothing too overpowering. Seems to be a little over carbonated, but not too bad. Overall, a very average pale ale.
