OK, not great; I am glad I got this one as a gift and I did not buy it on my own.

Pours a light brown body . Small 1/4 in head. No detectable lacing

Smell is not very pronounced. I'm not getting much of anything . Maybe a slight malt smell

Taste is malt forward and not bad ! Very slight hop note on the finish

Feel is a bit over carbonated

There is nothing wrong with this pale ale! It would do anybody well on a hot day. But there are other pale ale's that I would reach for before I chose this one again. The 4.9 ABV doesn't help...

By far the best Pale Ale I've ever had. It has a great look out of the bottle - amber hue - although not much of a head or lacing. The smell was just superb - not your run-of-the-mill pale ale scent. Mouthfeel was okay, too carbonated for my taste, but speaking of the taste, it was great. Hints of fruitiness to go mix quite well with the bitterness of the ale. Overall, I consider this the best Shipyard offering I've had to date.

Pours a copper color. Smell is malty with a slight pine and citrus.
Taste follows the nose with a sweet malt with pine and citrus flavor.
Nice dryish malt. Not hoppy. Very nice EPA.

Best by date was still 5 months out... but this tasted dreadful. Malty, stale bread.

P- thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew!

A- pale clear amber in color. Minimal head with poor lacing.

S- salty malty is all I get. some faint hints of pine and caramel come through. bready as well.

F- bready malts and piney hops.

M- malty/hoppy...malty/hoppy....it seems to flip flop without any real true flavor. Light bodied though which is nice.

O- eh....not again but worth trying.

Poured into tapered pint glass. Poured about an inch head with a pretty Amber color. It has a super sweet smell with burnt sugar and malty caramel notes. It has a strong malty bread notes upfront with a piney hoppy aftertaste. Not a bad beer at all. Nothing special, not a lot going on, but solid.
