A: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The body is a hazy honey-amber in color that turns more golden-orange when backlit. Small off-white head on top. No real lacing.
S: Not terribly strong in the nose - some mild citrusy hops (think clementine oranges) over bready malt.
T: More or less follows the nose: bready malt foundation, then citrusy hops. Some grapefruit, some orange peel, finishes with a touch of lemon zest that sticks around as a lingering bitterness. As it warms, the malt becomes more caramelly, but the hops still dominate on the finish and in the aftertaste.
M: Medium in heft, carbonation is fine and slightly prickly.
O: This is a solid take on what has become a ho-hum, ubiquitous style. It doesn't shine, but neither does it disappoint.

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.
