Poured into a Pilsner glass. Has a light coppery color and a light not very long lasting head. It has some nice carbonation and is pretty hoppy. It has a kind of sweet malty taste with a nice crisp finish. Overall I enjoyed this beer. It is something on the lighter side that I wouldn't mind having a 6 pack of in a sitting. Very enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured chilled in straight-edged glass

A: yellowish orange, clear; 1.5-finger head; decent carb action
S: a big poof of hops at first; mellows into mostly malt (cotton-candy-like)
T: bitter, hoppy; buttery flavor with subdued spicing; round, broad flavor; most pronounced in the tenor-note levels; bready, salty, and crispy

Overall a pretty good pale ale; more robust than most

Appearance: Really nice golden-amber color with a clear body. Excellent frothy head, with great retention from start to finish. It just looks refreshing - this is how a Pale Ale should be.

Smell: Citrus and floral, and plenty of hops.

Taste: Robust citrus and floral tastes, hops are noticeable while remaining understated. Malts come out after a few sips. Blends into the palate seamlessly. A totally balanced beer all the way through.

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, yet exceedingly refreshing.

Overall: A really solid pale ale, another great offering from Troegs. An excellent "session" beer (ok, it's 5.4% ABV, so not quite) with plenty of character. One of my favorite APAs.

Brilliant gold, the white head is small but sticks around.

Appetizing citrus and floral hop aromas, with a touch of resin and caramel in the background.

Crisp, citrus hops, a bit of sweet, toasty malt, and then a nice lingering grapefruit rind finish.

Medium light body with lots of carbonation.

Quite the easy drinker. Could definitely have a few.

I get that very nice fruity, floral, almost bubblegum Cascade hop smell that you get in a lot of the top notch Pale Ales like Victory's Headwater, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Dales Pale Ale. I get a fruity hop spiciness followed by a hop crispness some biscuit malt in the middle and ending with the crisp dry Cascade hop.

Very delicious Pale Ale. Its nothing too different than a lot of the top notch craft beer Pale Ales but it definitely holds its own as an extremely drinkable fruity hop forward ale. The biscuit malt is perfect with the hops and as it warms it the malt becomes sweeter. I also get bubblegum, tea, herbal and fruitiness from the hopping.

This definitely ranks amongst the best Pale Ales you can get. It blends all the flavors perfectly and gives off one of the best hop flavors you can get without it being an IPA.

a bottle from the anthology mixed case, poured into a pint glass. Tried this after recently trying an otter creek pale ale

yellow, quite clear, decent carbonation, head thin, but persisted, and left some lacing

Smell was pleasant, slightly citrus

taste was good, definitely better than the otter creek offering, citrusy, delicate hops, not at all bland. Mouthful was medium, quite smooth.

Overall, a good offering. Can see drinking several of these with a light supper.
