#3 in the Troegs Anthology. Poured into a beer mug.
A: Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber body that's maybe a little more reddish than most pale ales I've had. Also features a 1.5 finger head that doesn't have great retention. Carbonation bubbles can be seen floating up toward the head.
S: Some understated grapefruity hops and a slightly sweet malt base make themselves known to my big ol' nose. Nothing special, but it's nice.
T: The flavor that sticks out to me the most is the grapefruit notes that open the beer. Combined with the malt base keeping the bitterness in check, and you have something that's nicely balanced. It gets brownie points for being stupidly easy to drink while not being overly boring.
M: This has strong carbonation, even for a pale ale, but it's the good kind that isn't overly intrusive. The opening is, honestly, slightly creamy (which is weird, but not necessarily a disadvantage), and the finish is mildly drying.
O: A good quality, solid pale ale. Is it a world beater? No. Is it as good as, say, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale? Not quite. Would I buy it over the aforementioned SNPA if I wanted something a tad less hoppy? Yes, yes I would. Thumbs up.

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.
