Went out on a limb and grabbed this APA from Erie. Only had one other offering from this brewery. Poured into Spieglau IPA glass.

Nice looking pour. About one finger of white bubbly head, minimal lacing. Color is light copper, clear, no cloudiness. The first smell I get is more of a bready, caramel, malty scent. There is definitely a light hop essence as well, slightly citrus and earthy as well. Taste isn't far off from this either. Well balanced bready malts with a solid yet subtle hop backbone. The finish is dry with a nice earthy lingering hoppiness. Medium bodied with some substance; I like that. Overall a nice well balanced ale.

2.66/5  rDev -23.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly.

S: Aromas of caramel, biscuit, lemon, lime, herbs, and mandarin orange are present on the nose, but are very muted.

T: Indistinct flavors of lemon, lime, herbs, and mandarin orange take a little time to express themselves, but are muted even further by the emergence of a jumble of caramel, cream, biscuit, and mineral notes at mid-palate. The finish is very short with fleeting notes of minerals, caramel, and orange.

M: Medium in body and dryish. Carbonation is very crisp and intense, but the ale goes down well enough. I have a feeling that if the mouthfeel were a bit better balanced and the carbonation tamed a bit, this ale's flavors would be easier to discern.

O: I really do not know what happened here. Looking at some of the other reviews, I seriously wonder if I have been drinking the same beer. This is a fairly simple, straight-forward ale, but unfortunately it is not simple in an appealing way. There just isn't enough going on in this ale to sustain my interest.

A - Clear gold with just about a thin layer of white fizzy head, no lacing.
S - Sweet malt, a little lime zest, thats about it.
T - Sugar water with some light hop flavor.
M - Thin, wattery, and sweet.
O - This is just lame, good to session on a hot day I guess, but pass on to other, much much better APA's in the similar price range.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours an amber/orange with a small head that quickly fades. Medium carbonation. Great smell. Hop aromas with some fruity notes, possibly citrus. Taste has a definite ale note, but is otherwise surprisingly bland - even for a pale ale. Very thin feel as one would expect. I can't say the beer was bad, it wasn't; it just wasn't anything great. I was given this bottle so I can't complain. May be a nice summer or hot weather brew.
