Pours a deep burnt copper color with a lot of really creamy, off white head that refuses to go away. The lacing is absolutely lovely. Nose is floral, grassy, and hoppy. There's a sweetness to it, peaches and nectarines. It's potent and very inviting.
Taste is grassier, more bitter. The sweetness remains. There's a really nice malts/hops balance to this that makes it exceedingly refreshing, not too heavy, not too light.
Mouthfeel is sudsy, chewy, and wet. Full bodied. Overall this is a lovely pale ale, tasty, refreshing, and goes down the hatch easy.

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
