look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
Drank 1 1/2 months after bottling. Poured from a bottle into a glass.
A: Medium gold hue to bright red-orange depending on the light. Beer poured a big 3-finger, foamy head which left some lacing around the glass as it resided.
S: When I first poured it I got a big whiff of all kinds of hoppy goodness, but mid-way through the beer it's mostly just a think corn smell.
T: Corn flakiness up front but a strong citrusy/floral hop hit to back it up.
M: Moderate-high carbonation, which I like in a pale ale. Slightly sticky mouthfeel but very refreshing. The carbonation elevates the hops nicely.
O: Good APA. Maybe it would have a nicer aroma on tap or from a fresher bottle? But that's the only lacking characteristic of this APA.

Bottled 5/29/13. So over a year old, should probably not review this, but it was surprisingly good! Purchased as part of a mixed six at Liquor Outlet Wine Cellars in Boonton New Jersey on June 25th 2014.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.
a: Slightly hazy amber with a finger thick white head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Bready malt and slight fruit.
t: Moderate bready malt under a medium hop bite. Bitterness lingers at first but mellows later. Sweet to dry finish
m; Medium with very good body and smoothness. Some carbonation tingle.
o: A surprisingly tasty Pale, well balanced and satisfying. Very sippable. One of the best American style pale ales I have had. Perhaps aging this actually helps it.
