Thanks UGADawgGuy for the opportunity.
Pours a orange-yellow. A 2 finger white fizzy head falls quickly.
Aroma is bready, caramel, fruity, citrus with a bit of lemon, and some butter.
Flavor starts gently sweet, caramel and a little butter. Then a strong bitterness comes in, citrus and piney. Finish is bitter, a little harsh metallic, with another hint of butter in some sips.
Medium body with lots, too much, carbonation.
As it warms. the butter becomes more apparent in the nose. Butter + harshness = not very enjoyable.

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
