Changed my mind about this beer. Poured in a Stone IPA glass. Malty, syrupy, very earthy, sweet. Lightly bitter. Great beer! excellent MF for a APA.

The beer pours a light honey color into a pint glass with a 2 finger head.

The aroma is light pine.

The mouth feel is lightly carbonated and well suited to the style. Often
Pale Ales are too carbonated and not well-balanced.

The taste is bready and piney, finishing with a hoppy fruity finish and a light bitterness.

The beer is a balanced, full flavored Pale Ale, and is unlike other beers in the style, which
are either too carbonated, hoppy and/or lack a pronounced taste.
