On-tap at 38 Degrees, on to the beer:

This pale ale is a light orange color, moderate sized head on top, and solid lacing around. The aroma brings clean, piney, and vague fruitiness to the nose. It's a pale ale which leans towards the hoppy side, not just in aroma but in taste as well. Rather clean and fruity with a pleasant hoppiness that doesn't go into bold IPA territory, and adding a light honey malt base further enhances this ale.

This is one pleasing pale ale which is good for everyday drinking. Be on the lookout for this one.
