Pours a deep golden color with a good sized fluffy white head that shows great retention and a fair amount of lace. The aroma is caramel bready biscuit and a fair amount of earthy citrus hops with enough butterscotch to remind me who makes it. The flavor is bready toffee and butterscotch with an aggressive hop bitterness but little flavor. There's an off putting mineral mixed with wet cardboard oxidation going on here as well. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick bitter mouthfeel. Welcome to yesterday's APA. There's an aggressive use of hops here for the style, but they are all bittering hops so you get that bite mixed with the signature flavor from the yard with the ships. Honestly with so many better beers out there why bother with this one?

From the 355 ml. bottle dated July 2012. Sampled on March 9, 2012. Ooh, it is a handsome looking copper-amber with lively carbonation that builds up to a moderate head. Those bubbles keep flowing up though. The aroma is high on hops and sweet caramel malts. The hops are heightened compared to similar pales I have had. The body is smooth and medium. The taste has an odd yeasty, toffee-like flavor with a hop bite topping it all off. Bitter finish.

from notes taken about 2 weeks ago.

A: Amber, nice 1 finger head that leaves a lace on top

S: pine and floral hops, malty

T: Bready, some nice bittnerness, but dominated by the malts and has a tartness that is hard to place. The hops are citrus and noticeable. It ends with an off note that has a hint of licorice and a bit of sulfur somewhere in the finish.

M: light to medium body, good carbonation and drinkable.

I used to drink this frequently when I lived not far from the brewery. It's an average pale ale.
