Wow...that's all I have to say. this is beer sets the standard for pale ale's in my book. They definitely boosted the hops by adding a beautiful aroma on it. I recommend this beer to anyone getting into craft beer or anyone having trouble grasping the hop flavors. For a Pale ale this beer has a huge hop aroma with a very lite hope bite on the end. They balanced this beer right on the edge of Pale Ale and American Pale Ale (APA). No enough hop bite on the end to consider it an APA but just the right finish to make me wanna drink this all day/night. I give the guys over at Crazy Mountain Brewery Props on this one. It hits all the right spots i expect when drinking a quality craft beer.

Pours a very cloudy, amber color. Looks like honey. Very untypical for a Pale Ale. Thin foamy heady with very good amount of lacing around the sides of the glass that persists through drinking. Strong citrusy, piney smell. Can tell from the smell that it is a very hoppy beer. When tasting, you get a hint of pine with a strong citrus flavor throughout. Great hoppy finish with a hint of caramel at the end. Never heard of this brewery before, but if all their beers are like this, I will definitely try some more of them.

L: pours brilliant amber gold, permeated with streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a lacy 1" light ecru blanket of foam with good retention

S: aromas start ripe with bread crust, tropical fruits, citrus, floral, wet wood, earthiness, and a faint hint of tobacco

T: Mildly sweet biscuit, rich tropical fruits, citrus, and pineapple, begin the flavors with some earthiness and wet wood underneath

F: has a very rich creamy texture with a medium body and medium, very soft carbonation

O: This is a full flavored, very satisfying beer

12 oz. Bottle

Pours a nice yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, citrusy. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body. Overall, a nice tasty brew.

Looks like a pale, smells like a pale, tastes like a pale. Yup, it's a pale alright. I get the citrus flavoring, though not so much the tropical description that they provide on the bottle, but this was a solid APA. Lower IBU's than most pales (40), and a drinkable alcohol content as well. Not super hoppy as a result, and you don't get overwhelmed by the bitterness like some APAs slant toward. Nothing too adventurous here, but it works.
