Pours out to a one inch had that falls to a quarter inch and erratically laces the glass. This APA is very pale--a light gold hue. Aroma is on the subtle side with citrus and floral hops and pale malts. Flavor is also easygoing with a nice balance of sticky malts and crisp hops leading to a dry, refreshing finish. Mouthfeel is light for style. Overall, at 4.6%abv, it makes for a very sessionable pale ale. I had a few and kept my shit together.

This brewer has disappointed a couple of times, but their core offerings (Phila Pale Ale, Good Hope IPA) are excellent. I am a fan of the style APA and always like a new departure.
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a frothy white head that leaves medium lacing.
Smell: Floral, pithy nose with a hint of apricot, and a wide malt base. Kind of English. Very approachable, appetizing, good food beer.
Taste: Starts out with a lemon, floral, apricot approach followed by bitter, citrus hops that provide strong, long finish.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Pleasant. good finish. Would have another.
Drinkability: Must try for APA fans. Hoppy, but not over your head.

3.61/5 rDev -2.2%

On-tap at the local dive bar.
A-hazy yellow, small white head, decent lacing
S-citrusy, bread, grapefruit, floral notes-pine
T-citrusy taste (lemon, grapefruit), hoppier then most pales
M-medium bodied, good carbonation, taste little alcohol, crisp and refreshing
O-maybe its hometown bias and that fact that its on tap every where in the Philly area but a great beer. Not a typical pale and I think that is part of the appeal. Low ABV makes it very drinkable, which is good because I'll be having a several in the coming years.
