This bottle poured a rich hazy orangish amber, leaving little foam. I like a slightly hazy look, and this has it. I like a slight creamy foam on top, and this doesn't have it. The almost lace does not stick to the glass. This is good to look at with character, but not spectacular.
Smells, to me, are of floral and orange.
The mouthfeel is okay. It isn't really great, but it is good. It is a little fizzy creamy, which dissipates, and then it finishes light and syrupy.
Taste has an overpowering pine hop, which I really do not like. My personal feeling on this taste would put it at around 2.75, but I don't care for this style. Judging for the style itself, I think it does a very good job. Those who like pale ales will really like this flavor, it is done very well.
This has a moderate body - I like that in a beer - i'd guess its about what you would expect for this style, they did a good job.
It is easy for me to reach for another one of these, so if you like pale ales, then do give this one a try.

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.
