Great Pale Ale, one of my favorites. I will be grabbing one of these or two more of these during the summer time. Very refreshing and goes down well for a smooth Pale Ale. This and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale's are my favorites. Wish they came in a 6 pack though, since they are so enjoyable.

Hey, I love this beer and I drink it from a glass. Very simple description: big assertive hop attack, mellows out quickly and has an authentic maltiness that's really yummy. It's got some nice malts, giving it a orange color and great flavor. There's room for a little more complexity to this beer, maybe more nose, but is it needed? This would be my everyday drinker if I could buy it out here in NE.

EDIT: Dec 2015, one of my favorite beers has come down in quality and gone up in price. This happens. It just isn't as well made as it used to be. I wouldn't call the maltiness "authentic" or the hop as "big assertive". Still a fine beer, just not what it once was.

Side note: YES, THIS HAPPENS PRETTY OFTEN. Consistency over the years is almost impossible when you think of all the variables (ingredient qualities, equipment age, production volume, etc.)

Bright, punchy hops meet a slightly caramel and sweet back end. This is a truly well rounded beer and stays nicely within a sessionable range at 5.2%. Very drinkable.
