The first I noticed was the beautiful color, slight head and wonderful smell. The smell is similar to a lot of popular IPA beers --- hoppy with citrus scents such as oranges and grapefruits. The taste is very very good. It is a smooth tasting beer with a little creaminess and the right combination of hops and malt. It begins as with IPA characteristics but mellows out to a very tasty American Pale Ale. It's bitter but not over the top and leaves a dry taste in your mouth that makes you want to drink more.
This is a really good beer that taste much more complex than your average Pale Ale and isn't too over the top at 6.4%. The more I taste the more I like! I almost skipped it, but decided to pick up a six pack yesterday. I will have to get another six pack before the beer is out of season.
