Had this one on tap at the brewery.

Poured a brownish amber color with a decent slightly off-white head on it.

Smell was nice, hoppy, light citrus notes as well.

Good well balanced beer. Nice malt flavor up front with a bitter hop finish.

Mouthfeel was light and this beer went down very easy.

Overall I enjoyed this beer. I'd definitely go for it again. Really a good pale ale.

Draft at Vintage, review from quickly written notes.

Bright yellow orange body, thin cap of off white foam sits on the surface. Color is saturated and has good clarity. Foam ebbs away fairly quickly, leaving behind random spotty lacing.

Aroma was of citrus and crushed vitamins. Taste was similar, there was something odd going on with the hops, a cross between chewable vitamin and sweet tarts (citrus flavored of course). Some basic pale malt sweetness to balance, mild hop bitterness. Seemed a little faded and not all that bright and flavorful. Body was somewhat light, same with the carbonation. Didn't opt for a second pour. This was better than the Woodshed IPA, but not by much. It's basic and serviceable, a utilitarian pale ale.

A-Light amber color with good head and decent lacing.
S-Very nice citrus hop aroma.
T-Good malt sweetness to balance the hops. Very nice citrus hop flavor from the centennial hops. Slight earthiness.
M-Slightly sweet for a pale ale.
Overall, very tasty APA. I'm a fan of a malty pale ale and more citrus hop flavor so I really like this beer.

Sampled 10/9/2010 at the brewpub.

Pours orange/brown, mostly clear, off-white head, decent lacing and retention.

Aroma is pretty hoppy showing some pine and old hops (fishfood).

Flavor is an interesting balance between pine, mango, and fish food (only negative aspect of the flavor but it is significant. Also a healthy dose of caramel mixed in there.

Body is medium with ample carbonation. Drinkable for sure.
