Palo Alto Brewing Co. Hoppy Ending Pale Ale
A- Sweet head! Thick head retention, 1 ½ inch thick, delicate lacing. Yellow amber color, not completely clear
S- I don’t smell anything! Even after trying desperately to find something distinctive.
T- Just flat. Okay mouth, definitely not what you’d hope for from a pale ale.

Clear amber colored ale with just a little chill haze. Small white colored head, pretty average looking.
The scent is light Northwestern style hop. Grapefruit and pine with a grassy scent you would expect from a noble hop variety. Mild toasted grain.
Starts out woody and dry with a mainly toasted grain flavor. Faint sweetness and medium level of bitterness. Pretty basic pale ale here, but it doesn't really standout as being something special.
Mouthfeel is OK.
Overall this is an OK APA. The problem with that is it just doesn't standout in anyway.

Poured into a standard pint glass a clear deep golden color with a nice looking lacey white head that settled into a frothy mass.Herbal and grassy hops stand out most in the nose along lighter biscuit sweetness,like a others have noted I detected a slight mustiness in the aromas.Flavors are leafy and grassy and not overly bitter from the hops,light caramel/biscuit underneath the hops.Not bad,it went down easy at a bbq gathering yesterday.

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a dark golden body. The head fades quickly and leaves decent lace.
S - Musty and slightly herbal hop aromas with just a hint of the American hop aromas that the label implies.
T - Thick malt with some musty hops in the middle and a finish of dry toast and a hint of caramel.
M - Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.
D - Meh, the hop character is totally lacking for all the hop and west coast descriptors on the bottle.

Single finger head with good retention on a clear dark golden body and some lacing. Bready malts, tart citrus, yellow cake and even has an almost sweet milk chocolate note to it surprisingly. The clarity and color are not expected for the flavor which for me is more of a caramel malt based flavor. Their are notes of yellow cake, mild earthy and grassy hops and some generic mildly tart citrus. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Pours a clear golden color with a tight, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.
Smells of grassy hops with a little bready malt.
Tastes of the grassy hops with a solid malt backbone. The grassy hops come through with a little lemon zest as well. Malt comes through and adds a little grainy sweetness with some bread notes as well. A touch of fruit comes through towards the end and rounds everything out.
Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is quite tasty and worth a try.
