The beer pours a nice amber color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a dry, pale and crystal malt scent along with a light hop aroma. The taste is decent also. It has a dry, "amber" ale taste with a moderate bitterness. It's basically a copper colored APA. The mouthfeel is average. It is a medium bodied beer with too much carbonation. This beer really isn't much to get excited about. It's overly carbonated and isn't all that interesting.

Pours a clear golden amber color with a minimal white head. Aroma is hops, pine hops, and citrus hops.

The taste is more of the same. hops, hops, hops. A bit watery too, to be honest. Like many other APAs out there, this one just goes a bit too hop crazy and never finds the right balance. The flavors are light and crisp, so it's not a bad beer for a picnic or something, but it's a bit too unbalanced for my liking.

A nice clear copper colored brew, this one has a thin off-white head. Good appearance. The aroma is clean,a lightly malty, and with a hint of undetermined fruit. Decent hop presence. Fresh and clean taste. Firmly bitter. This is a tasty, but not exceptional outdoor brew (enjoyed on my deck on Memorial Day).

3.33/5  rDev -5.4%

On tap at Sawmill Tap Room 4/28/12

A - orangish amber; thin lacing of white head; little retention

S - very little is anything in the nose; faintly metallic

T - citrusy, caramel, faint chocolate, fruity

M - medium bodied, smooth, lightly carbonated

This was a bit disappointing. It didn't have much flavor-wise that stood out, but it had some characteristics that lead me more towards an amber ale. In the end it was boring, unbalanced, and not specifically stylistic.

Pours a clear copper color with about two fingers of beige head. Keeps a pretty full, nice looking lace and leaves some nice webbing on the sides.

Smells of toasted malt and a bit of caramel. Hops are very feint; only a bit of earthiness and a hint of citrus.

Taste also consists of primarily toasted malt and caramel, with a bit more hop flavor than the nose let on. It's primarily earthy like the nose, with a leafy, slightly herbal quality as well. Very minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and pretty smooth. Slightly dry in the finish. Moderate carbonation.

This is decent but it's really nothing to get excited about. Pretty basic pale ale that's pretty light on the hop character actually. The toasted malt is the dominant quality. Decent stuff.
