3.15/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A: Pours a hazy, bubbly bright tangerine color with an absolutely massive beige colored head. The head is so large, in fact, I'm a little worried that this beer could be infected (though it doesn't smell like it is...). Nice lacing patterns, as well.

S: Clean and bold hop aroma, big time grapefruit and citrus aroma. They definitely used some Cascades here.

T&M: Flavor is kind of bland. A light Cascade citrus flavor is present, but there's a very weak pale malt backing. Body is a bit too light and it's not as substantial as I'd expect from a good APA. It's a decent start flavor-wise, but it's just needs more substance. Furthermore, it's incredibly over-carbonated. The beer just foams up in my mouth, which kills the feel and flavor.

D: Well, it's light enough, but the mouth-foaming thing is pretty annoying and doesn't make it as enjoyable to drink. I don't think I've gotten a bad bottle, as some other reviewers have voiced similar complaints about over-carbonation.

On tap at Taco Mac Duluth. BOOYAH!! 100th review of this beer! Reviewed from notes.

(Appearance) appears a deep golden amber tone, very cloudy in appearance, with a thick froth head, solid white color. Good retention. Looks pretty solid for a pale and a really good presentation. 4.5

(Smell) Pale malts and a mild crisp hop aroma, mild but balanced. Not much else beyond the predictable but decent for what's there. Higher potency and it would be gold. 3.5

(Taste) Malt with a medium bitter brace on the end. It's largely going for a bitter hop approach, and does pretty well on those grounds. However, there's not much substance that comes through with the bitterness, and the beer lacks a lot on flavor with hardly any middle ground. Not the most watery thing I've had but could improve on body a bit! 3

(Mouthfeel) finds a middle ground between smooth and crisp, there's a bit of perkiness from the carbonation. Texture wise it's very slick, pretty good for emphasizing the difference between the IPA and pale ale aspect. Body is very mild. Alcohol presence is low as well. 3.5

(Overall) not a bad pale ale from Red Brick and certainly fits in with the category, although the emphasis on hop bitterness takes over much of the brew without a body to balance it with. It's going away soon so get it when you can because its worth a shot for the price paid. 3.5
