This poured a very thin bubbly head with noticeable carbonation and a pale golden color. It did not hold the color or structure of many a heartier Pale Ale.
The scents were the best part of this APA. Very evident was the fruitiness and hoppiness of a quality APA. Notes of pine, sweet barley and even a hint of clove were detected. The fruity aroma was the best part.
The taste was smooth and light; a bit of grainy malt and a touch of hoppy bitterness. Didn't detect the fruitiness that I caught on the aroma and that was missed. The end is a touch metallic with a tinny feel.
I was very impressed with the complexity of the scent so the taste was a bit disappointing but still good enough to drink regularly.

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.
