Appearance - Pours an dark orange/amber color with an inch thick head that lingers for a few minutes.

Smell - Caramel, floral, and earthy.

Taste - Very sweet and floral. Light hints of caramel with earthy malts and a strong bitterness throughout.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall - This is much more bitter than most APA's I've tried. It's one step under an IPA

Slightly cloudy pale ale with a towering head from a vigorous pour. Nice dark brick orange color with a beige head. Decent lacing and active carbonation. Smell has mild breadiness with an orange citrus hop. Some light caramel malt sweetness with a touch of fruitiness. Taste is hop forward with a tasty malt core that glues the light orange and bigger grapefruit hoppiness together. Hops are the star here in case you were wondering. Finish is dry and mildly bready with a dry hopped pucker. Feel is crisp and light with a refreshing swallow. A nice drinkable ale that is always welcome

Ive tried a few APA's now and so far this is my favorite. Brewery is also very close so getting this stuff fresh isnt an issue. I do tend to buy S.N pale ale a bit more because of price, but I enjoy the doggie style just a bit more. I normally pour my beers into a glass, but sometimes I just gotta keep this one in the bottle and display that wonderful Ralph Steadman artwork. Keep it GONZO!

A normal pour got me just under a finger of parchment colored head. Body is a nice deep amber, and head leaves a nice frothy ring. Lacing tries but can't quite hold on.

The nose is a bouquet of weak pine, sweet grass and mild citrus.

The taste is where I feel this one falls apart. It comes off to me as a generic grassy/piney hop taste, with a light bitter end.

Beer is light-medium bodied. It washes down quick and easy and is refreshing. No coating or stickiness, dry ending, little bit bitter.
