Poured into a perfect pint.
2.5 A: Very lightly hazed yellow orange color. Two fingers of foamy white head. Retention is poor and scant lacing is left.
3.5 S: Wow this is skunky. Not skunky as in it got skunked by light, but rather it smells like woodland creatures with skunk being the most apparent. Mineral, floral and earthy hops, light caramel, and a touch of breadiness round this out.
3.0 T: While the skunkiness worked in the nose, it's not so great in the taste. It's like chewing on woodchips if the wood taste was taken out(, ya I don't know what I mean either). Grainy malts with just a hint of toastiness. Floral and earthy hops. Light caramel and breadiness. Mineral woodchip creatures.
3.0 M: Lighter medium body. A bit overcarbonated as it "blows up" in the mouth a bit. Could use some more creaminess as well.
3.0 D: It's not necessarily bad, but it's weird. Some might love it and probably more will hate it. Either way, I was glad to try it.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/23/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange, apple, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toast, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange, apple, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange, apple, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and solid complexity of citrus/earthy hops, bready malt, and light yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and some slight cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly prickly/sticky mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this was a very solid English pale ale. Good balance and solid complexity of citrus/earthy hops, bready malt, and light yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
