Thanks to Rusel_G for the bottle.

Appearance: Hazed orangey gold. Head is white, super fluffy, with a dense creamy, bubbly head. Solid retention with some spots of lacing.

Smell: Leafy and grassy. Some herbal and citrus. Malts are lightly sweet, pushing some biscuit and caramel malt. Slightly toasted. Slightly earthy. Very mild. Pale malts. Some grapefruit mixed in there.

Taste: Bready and slightly toasted. Hops hit a rather wide spectrum with some earthy, citrus, and even floral notes. Slight grapefruit and caramel malt sweetness. Undercooked bread and a slight lingering bitterness. A bit of hop spiciness. Leafy and grassy at times. Nice clean fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean with a medium body and slightly above average carbonation.

Overall: Hey, I can drink this!

It's a straight up, no frills APA. Nothing to write home about, but drinkable overall.

12 ounce bottle -> Dogfish Head glass

This one pours up a hazy gold with a gargantuan white head that made me initally think I had an infected bottle. Retention is world class and the lacing is some of the most elaborate I've ever seen. The nose is citrus, pine, floral, and biscuit. Taste is very nice. There is a definite grapefruit note with this one along with some maltiness. Not very bitter on the finish though. It would be a great summer beer for those who like an easy drinking pale ale. All in all pretty good.
