Once again, I was turned away by hokey-ass labels.

This is a really good beer. Probably the most controllable pour I have ever experienced. You want a thick head? It pours a thick head and stops dead short of the the finish line. You want a medium-sized head? Same deal. It's a good looking head too--espresso thick (speaks volumes about the grain bill). Body is beautiful APA.

The "scent of an American micro" tickles the nasal passages, and hop arousal takes over as the beautifully tangy and sappy hops just squish all about in the middle palette after being led to the dance floor by dextrine-sweet crystal malts. A great balance working here.

Just like the pour, you can take this taste anywhere you want it to go. Drive it down the fairway for a bitter hop snap, or squish it out the sides for a sweet floral finish.

The choice is yours.

P- Thanks to some friends for this beer

A- gold copper color that is quite clear with visions of alcohol in it. half finger head that leaves a water line mark on my pint.

S- grassy hops with hints of citrus. Some toasted malts as well.

F- grassy citrus hop flavor with back end toasted malts. a nice complement but the grassy tone tends to dominate. I would like the citrus to dominate the grassiness.

M- smooth and light bodied. hoppy taste in the mouth.

O- not a bad beer but like I said the grassy dominance tends to take it down a notch for me.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, grassy, pungent, pale, and toasted malts.

Taste: You get a nice dose of hop flavor here. Mild bitterness in the rear that compliments the toasted and pale malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, crisp, a little chewy, refreshing, mild bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice pale ale that I haven't had in a while. Another solid brew from these guys.
