Poured out looking blond and a little hazy. White head, dissipates quicker than a white girl's looks after getting married. Weird herbal aroma, not in the herbal hop way, herbal in that they knocked something off the spice cabinet into this. How about some hop aroma bro? A little bit vegetal and plastic like.

Taste was very grassy, still not quite arriving at the level of being hoppy. Biscuit flavors and spice rack accoutrement all over this. Some lager like yeastiness to this. Man, this beer is all over the place. At times tastes like they blend this with a witbier. Soapy exterior in the mouthfeel.

Its got bitterness on it, but it just doesn't taste like a pale ale. Everything about it seems off for style. I wasn't picking up on a heftier malt base or any caramel notes. The herbal spicing was just weird. The lack of hops, or anything they impart flavor wise.

Had they called this a witpale, I might have found it to be above average, but as just a pale ale, its just kind of a headscratcher.

I found this beer at the beach. First smell was pear and has a fruity (overly fruity) taste. Not a bad beach beer but wouldn't buy again.

A-Pours copper. Not much else to note from the 2 oz. sample.

S-Malty. There is also a bit of an 'off' aroma. Bland and very stingy on hops. If you have an American Pale Ale clocking in at 6% ABV, then I would like some hops, please.

T-A recreation of the aroma on my palate. A little bit 'off', a little bit hoppy? A good bit malty.

M-Nothing useful to note.

O/D-Was not a fan of this beer. Below average in my estimation. Don't enjoy slamming beers but this one needs a drawing board close by so it can get back to it.

Appearance: It pours a clear copper with an off white rocky head upon thinning out leaves behind thick lacing.

Aroma: Lots of grapefruit and citrus hop notes in the front. Tropical fruits, simple syrup light malty sweetness but it's in the back.

Taste: A good citrus hop profile. Light malty sweetness, smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied.

Notes: A drinkable beer not too much too it but it's decent. Cheers.
