Enjoyed in a pint glass from a bottle
Appearance: A moderate pour yielded a significant white head which dissipated at a very reasonable rate. The beer is a nice gold color with some slight orange highlights. Very clear.
Smell: Rather powerful hops here in the nose, but not overwhelming. Piney and a little sticky smelling, and nicely rounded out by the sweetness of the malt. Fresh.
Taste: Clean, dominated by hops, but the malt is not too weak to deal with it. Hops are less green and sticky than I would have guessed from the smell, but they instead transition very nicely into a healthy dose of malt. The malt seems to me to be a little bit grainy, if that is really the correct term, but it does assert itself nicely. A sharper hop bitterness and a sweet lingering maltiness battle each other in the finish, with both slowly fading away. There is some sort of an almost but not quite metallic taste that I keep getting caught on, but it is overall quite tasty.
Mouthfeel: Refreshingly clean, well but not overly carbonated, with a slight astringent drying at the end, this is a well crafted pale ale.
Drinkability: I could have a few of these. Goes down smoothly and quickly, without becoming overbearing in any regard. Well done.

Golden amber color with a thin thick head with low retention but leaving lots of laces.
Aroma of bread malt with light notes of herbal hops and papaya.
Flavor is more intense, notes of sweet pale malt, herbal hops with some lemon and grapefruit citrus, a hint of spices and resin finishing. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with low carbonation.
Pleasant beer that grows over time. Balanced and refreshing APA on the average lower side of intensity. Great fit for a session beer.
