to me this is about as good as an american pale ale gets. quite similar to the odell 5 barrel in a lot of ways. smells more malty than most, almost british style in that regard, but also has a touch of sweetness in the smell and in the flavor too. flavor has a nice fruity hop profile, but nothing aggressive, just a nice balanced easy drinking session pale ale. works will with tailgate style food, and is a nice beer for that purpose. i must say, this brewery has done nothing but impress me, i will always buy their stuff because its so unique and high quality. this is their staple beer for good reason.

T - Orange, citrus, grassy, some bread.

M - Good carbonation, medium body, sweet orange finish with some bitterness.

O/D - Not too bad, very drinkable and pleasant with nice balance.
