Appearance: Hazy golden, with a slight head of off-white suds. Virtually no lace.

Aroma: Subtle citrus hops, corn, grainy, lagery malts. Hmm.

Taste: Very mild somehow, with the hops and malts blending smoothly, but the impression here is really a pretty dull ale. It’s not a bad-tasting beer, but in a land of big-tasting craft ales, this is a pale, watery shadow — ultimately forgettable and not one I’d reach for again.

BOD 11/5/14 from Total Wine. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.

Light nose of biscuit and somewhat spicy hops.

Light body with a somewhat smooth texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with a touch of effervescence in the middle and more in the finish.

The flavor profile is borderline outstanding. Intensity is a bit light (even for a session ale), fair complexity, world class balance and it is tasty. It begins with a grainy biscuit that soon surrenders to a mild herbal hop flavor. A perfect amount of mild bitterness arrives in the middle. The finish is a slow fade of hops.

A : Pours a mellow golden hazy hue, coloring in a 30% opacity, with a very nicely layered and stable 2 finger head. The head leaves webs and lace on the sides as it recedes.

S : Lots of dense, malty grains, maybe stashed in a wooden bucket. Some faint pine pokes through but the hop is largely juicy citrus. Some bready smells also accompany the aroma.

T : Mildly piney, with a lot of orange and orange peel. This is held up by a solid foundation of cracker and bread malts, a little yeast, and ends on a citrus rind note.

F : Light bodied, airy, not particularly dense at all, with a mild carbonation underneath. It ends somewhat fizzy and semi-dry.

O : I remember the first time I tried a pale ale that I liked. I bought it from the Wolf Stop in Aberdeen, SD. This reminds me of that beer. It takes me back to a time when I was first trying different styles and I landed on an example of the pale ale category that I thought did pretty well by me. Audible Ale does a pretty good job if I do say so. I'd buy this in a sixer, it's a solid APA.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/13/2014. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, light pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a really solid pale ale style. All around good robustness and balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Copper colored with excellent clarity. Lots of carbonation bubbles are churning from within. Heavy lacing. There's a quarter inch head of eggshell white. Aroma is of light malt and fresh bread. The flavor seems a bit muted with some light malt and bready notes. Just a trace of gentle bittering hops are detectable. The mouthfeel is light and smooth.
