Poured from 11-ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Very pretty copper color, with a thick, spongy white head that left scads of lacing as it settled. There was no date on the bottle, but this sample was quite malty. Lots of caramel on the nose and palate, with some piney and resiny floral hop character in the background. Assertive bitterness as advertised. Not bad, but I expected more from the impressive hop bill. That said, this was much better at room temperature than at fridge temperature. YMMV.

12 oz bottle poured into snifter

A: deep amber body with slight haze. Frothy small bubbled white head.

S: Smells malty with a slight floral, resin bite.

T: Malty beer bready resiny and not very hoppy.

M: Slightly heavy especially for an pale ale.

O: Such an average beer, more of an English style IPA. It has a ton of maltiness and just flecks of Hops. This is is a beer you won't be disappointed you didn't buy.

Pours dark copper, smells heavy of malt and piney, resinous hops. Tastes very similar-dark dank hops with a strong malt presence. This is one of the heavier APAs I have had. Drinks closer to an IPA.

Pours copper in color. Transparent. Nice thick head retention on top of the beer.

Aroma is citrus forward with notes of honey and mango in the background.

It's flavor is very well balanced. It has a malt backbone that pairs well with it's hop level and hop profile.

It's a good, all-around pale ale.
