A: 4.0 - Bright clear amber-gold with a large, frothy head, fading but leaving nice lacing.
S: 3.75 - Nice amount of piney, resinous hops in the nose, with very light malt.
T: 4.0 - Flavor certainly emphasizes the hops, with a load of piney, barky hop flavor. Bitterness isn't extreme, but this is a very dry beer, very well-attenuated. Yeast flavor is pretty neutral. It's about the hops, with just a tad bit of biscuity malt underneath.
M: 4.0 - Light bodied, easy drinking, refreshing in its way.
O: 3.75 - Very good beer, though good hoppy beers are a dime a dozen. Would like more adventureness from RA.

From the bottle. Brewed with Ultra hops.
This pours a straw tan with creamy foam that’s tightly packed and long lasting.
The aroma has characters of a dry grassy hop with a hint of tropical fruit.
It's an intriguing blend which comes across on the palate as well, with a sharp hop bite and a slightly honeyed finish.

Thanks to @xicanobeerrun for the trade!

Re-review with the old review left in place. The old one was when I had just gotten to this place and was new to the brewery. Now I'm a regular customer of theirs, RABC being not only great beer, but local, and frequently cheeper, tho every bit as good as any other craft brewery in America. Not changing any ratings, just refreshing the review.

original review:

Good looking brew, tannish orange and mostly clear with rising bubbles and a great 1.5 finger white fluffy head and good lacing.

Aroma is great! Crisp and spicy hops are very up front. Pepper and citrus, some earthy malts, and a little fruit.

Flavor is also quite good. Very hoppy for a pale ale, this could easily be an IPA from all the hops flavor, but it's not quite as bitter. Earthiness and peppery spices again make a showing, along with some citrus and a little biscuit malt.

Body is pretty rich and full for a pale ale, yet drinkability is maintained. An earthy hop bitterness finishes it off.

Overall this is a very likeable beer and I'm glad I took the chance and bought a whole sixer of it. I will now have to try more beers from this brewery!

Color- light gold.

Aroma- pineapple, pine cones, and new latex gloves.

Taste- Starts with a refreshing citrus then finishing with a dull dry bitterness as if the hops were stale. A disappointment from Real Ale in Blanco, Texas.

Tasted on 12/31/2012. Bottle had a "best by" date of 1/27/2013.
