Darker than expected-auburn color with a fine haze throughout. Head is yellow/brown tinted white, densely foamy/almost nitro looking in texture. Lace is semi sticky in the form of shifting sheety rings and spots. Aroma is doughy caramel-ish malt with a dusting of light floral, slightly fruity/spicy and earthy hop aromas. As it warms more tropical fruity comes through. I find myself digging for hop aromas in the syrupy malt. Taste is caramel malty, grainy, with super fine aggressive carbonation mixing with dry citrus rind bitterness. Not a bad beer....now that I'm getting further into it and more adjusted to its forward bitterness, I'm starting to like it more. I do think some additional late hop additions would benefit the aroma and flavor...however this does say its dry hopped on the label.

Pours dark amber, almost red with a finger width foamy head, which persists through drinking. There is a good deal amount of lacing on the side of the glass. The smell is not really all that overpowering. Can determine citrus, slightly grassy smell. You get a malty taste up front, quickly followed by a moderate hoppy taste with a stronger malt at the end. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, almost soapy. Not a bad beer, but I have definitely had stronger and better pale ales. Would drink it again, but there are others I would chose first.

Nutty brown body with a mostly white head and lace that clings to the glass like crazy. Some visible floaters in this one...

Smells a little spicy, sweet, and citrusy, with a little funk.

Not a lot of flavor, a little bitter, a little too watery. A little funk, I think this one might be beyond it's date.

... I don't know about this one...
