4.24/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured into a pint glass, bottle dated best by 5/3/2013
Appearance: Pale golden, light brown, light bronze, slight haze (I am assuming their is some dry-hopping here), Large, two finger head with excellent retention. Sticks along the side of the glass throughout the entire time.
Smell: Interesting up front spice smell, orange zest, apricot, a hint of biscuit/bread
Taste: Very smooth, medium carbonation, slight bitterness, complex malt/roast taste, mixed with just the right amount of hops. Also taste a bit of spice of sorts.
Overall: Excellent American Pale Ale, very refreshing. The smell may throw you off into thinking this is a hop monster, but it's really not. Whereas there is some bitterness in the mouthfeel, it seems to be more on the smell. Highly recommended!
Serving type: bottle
