This was a stunning little beer from what I considered a more commercial brewery. Tasting this compared to every other beer they make was a treat, and this beer rocked me. It isn't the biggest, boldest, most bitter brew; instead it is elegantly made with balance and subtlety. You can't drink IPA and Stout EVERY time (though you can try!)
Serving type: on-tap

Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Lacings are average.
Smell is bready malts with just enough herbal hops to keep to style.
Taste is herbal earthy hops with a light funk to them. The malts are bready and lightly dirty.
Mouthfeel is medium fairly low carbonation and a bitter / sweet finish.
Overall a Pale Ale for every day drinking. Eclipsed in most was by the bigger and bolder trend, it is still an easy drinking un pretentious example of an APA.
