Very close to the perfect pale ale. Nice orange colour in the pint - this is going to be a dry one. All the required hallmarks of the style which a lot of brewers get wrong - Firm bitterness, crisp, clean, well balanced etc. But a cracking hit of classic american, slighly dank hops, but all in balance and not over the top. And a bit of a biscuity malt makes a cameo appearance to make this a complex, but very sessionable pale, one of the best I've had (if not the).

22oz bottle thanks to a recent trade here, can't remember who sent it but I do appreciate it a lot. Split this with a buddy and we both thought it was a good pale ale. Nice orange color, decent head. Smells a bit hoppy but nothing extra. Taste had a nice hop bitterness with a decent malt backing. I'd drink a couple sixers of this if I could, not bad at all.
