Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip. Bottled 8-8-11 so its only 2 weeks old, should be nice and fresh.
A - A rigorous pour yields a 3 finger head that descends at a pretty medium rate. left big sheets of lace down the glass as it went down. a thin disc sticks around for the duration thereafter. Light amber in color.
S - Hops!! A great American hop aroma. I can't really get much else besides Cascade and Chinook.
T - A very bitter beer. The hops don't come through in the flavor as much as they do in the aroma. Dry biscuity malt presence. Not enough to balance the hop bitterness IMO
M - Medium bodied and sudsy.
O - A very American beer. hop aroma is spot on, but is a little lacking on the flavor of the overall beer.

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.
