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.

Different label...more of a skeleton in pirate attire.
Pours a light gold with small head.
Aroma of sweet malt and light grassy hops, fresh bread dough.
Moderate carbonation and mild mouthfeel.
Flavors of light malts, grassy hops, light citrus and a little bite in the finish. For the style it's decent, not exceptional but not offensive. Certainly more flavor than a Bud-Miller-Coors!
