12 oz brown bottle with a freshness date on the label.

A- Orange amber hued brew, two fingers of head stay steady with great retention.

S- Apple and pear fruitiness, whiff of orange blossom like hop smell and a fresh malted grain aroma.

T- Fresh hop flavor with a medium bitterness stack up well to the caramel like maltiness. Mandarin oranges and pears come to mind, more hay like hopiness and grain in the semi-sweet finish.

M- Light crispness rolls out to be a creamy smoothness, medium bodied.

D- Solid enough to drink all night, a good medium to pair many foods.

I am very impressed, if you love hops this has a well rounded hop character.

Reviewed based on tasting notes from a blind pale ale tasting.

12 oz. bottle inside a paper bag poured into a plastic tasting cup.

A- Hazy, dark amber color.

S- Bouquet reflected the taste.

T- Very hop forward. Very fresh, floral hops with notes of citrus. The hops easily dominate the malts in this one.

M- I didn't make any notes on mouthfeel.

O- A dark horse(I hadn't ever had anything by this brewery) in the blind tasting that did pretty well for itself. A good choice if you are looking for a very hop forward American pale ale.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear orange with a half a finger of fizzy white head, no lacing.
S - Nice big orange aroma, some sweet malt, a tad astringent, some hop resin.
T - Orange up front, it fades fast, you get some biscuit and pale malt, lightly floral on the end.
M - Yeah its mildly creamy, a mild bitterness.
O - Decent APA, refreshing, good orange quality.
