A better version of Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale. Extremely high drinkability and perfect amount of hops, does not overload it as a lot of these West Coast beers are apt to. I wish I could easily find this back on the East Coast as it's my favorite example of an APA.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A- Clear dark orange/light red. The head is thin and only leaves a slight lacing.

S- Caramel notes along with pine and grass. I'm almost positive there are Nugget hops in this beer.

T- Very similar to Hopback Amber, maybe a little less sweet. Mild caramel upfront followed by a piney bitterness. The finish is slightly grainy.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O- A solid pale ale, reminds me of a cleaner Hopback Amber.

Serving type: on-tap
