S: Slight bready sweetness with a pleasant fruity hoppiness in the background.

L: Slight, hazy burnt orange. Creamy white head that dissipates slightly. Great lacing.

T: Light bready sweetness with a slight resiny and fruity hop taste. Medium spicy bitterness with a fairly clean maltiness into the finish. Finishes semi-dry and hoppy.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Solid pale ale. Not much more needs to be said.

Poured from the bottle a lightly hazed bright orange color with a thin ivory head. No lacing with this one.

Aroma of bready malts along with light floral and grassy notes. Found an almost-buttery aroma of microwave popcorn floating about as well.

The taste had a bitter bite to it. Not really from any hops, but just bitter.

Medium bodied and a bit dry with fair carbonation.

I fear I may have picked up an older bottle while in Michigan. I found none of the hoppy presence that others have mentioned. Bummer.

Poured into one of those Sam Adams glasses and developed a thick white head which clung to the glass, though the head was shortl-ived. Appearance was cloudy with a honey / straw color. Aromas had strong hop characteristics with sweet, citrus notes. Taste was predictably hoppy with hints of spice and citrus. Aftertaste was clean and dry. Overall an excellent beer.

liked this better than i thought i would, and its a steal as an under 5 dollar bomber. the pour is real pale hay color, with a fair bit of haze to it and a short white head of tiny popping bubbles. the nose is fresher hops, resious and sappy, bitter but with that lemon zest element. flavor is balanced more than the nose, with a biscuity malt profile that borders on doughy and desserty, with no clear leaning. the hops intensify through the drink, culminating it a very bitter but somehow addicting finish. carbonation is grandiose here, more generous than the style usually commands, which gives this beer an effervescent mouthfeel. the medium body is just right, and this may well be the best blue point beer ive had. i have been unimpressed to date, but this pale ale was outstanding.

Snagged a bomber of this for $4.25 at the local Giant Eagle

A - Nice 1/2 inch of sticky white head with great lacing. Beer color is a hazy bright orange yellow.

S - Biscuit malt, pale malt, a touch of sharp bitterness.

T - Actually quite good. The bitterness blends very well with the biscuit and pale malts. Not much else to say.

M - Light to medium easy to drink. Pretty nice carbonation.

Overall nothing to run out and buy again but one of the better pale ales I have drank.
