Pours a dark straw/light copper color with a half-finger white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving light lacing.

Smells of pale malts with hints of grapefruit and floral hops. As the beer warms the pale malts take over even more than they already were.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Pale malt flavors up front that carry on through until the mildly bitter ending. Very light grapefruit flavors manage their way out midway through the sip.

Mouthfeel is good. It's a bit on the thin side, but overall it's pretty smooth.

Drinkability is good. This isn't the most flavorful of APA's, but I could have a few of these.

Overall this was a good beer though it was nothing special. Worth a shot if you're at Park Tavern, especially if it's hot and humid.

Comes out of the tap a clear golden amber - not remarkable, but at least appetizing. Malty aroma has some fruity and spicy hints. Solid flavor is mainly malty and surprisingly hoppy, and only mildly bitter. Texture is smooth, tingly, and satisfyingly sassy. Nothing spectacular, but worthy.

On-tap at the park's brewpub. Cheesy aroma, a bit of grassy hops, soapy metallic finish.Fuggle hops.Less thana verage mouthfeel. Not one of the better ones, and at that highly carbonated. Pale yellow colour, with active carbonation bubbles.Worth avoiding really.

This was a dissapointing beer. The body was thin watery and so was the flavor. It was a bit light for a Pale Ale as well. Verged on being golden. Needed either thicker malt or bigger hops. The hops it did have made it take Eastern European with noble hops like saaz or hallertau.
