A - PRETTY DESCENT AMBER COLORING. DESCENT HEAD.

S - ALMOST SMELLS LIKE A DISHWASHING DETERGENT AND BROWN SUGAR.

T - VERY NICE TASTING MIDDLE, DEFINATELY NOT A STRONG STARTER AND FOR SURE NOT A CLEAN FINISH.

M - DISTINCT TASTE OF CASCADE HOPS.

D - REFRESHING, MAKES YOUR MOUTH FEEL LIKE IT HAS BEEN WASHED OUT WITH SOAP.

Hazy bronze hue with a thin, but tight head that manages decent lace. Aroma of pearish fruity esters with a slightly detracting note of green apple acetaldehyde. Clean light caramel sweetness is perceived simulataneously with a floral and mildly citric hop nose. Flavor is dominated by biscuit laced sweetness. Subdued citrusy hops tinged by grapefruit. Trace diacetyl. Mellow all around. Green apple undertone surfaces as the beer breathes. Mild hop bitterness leaves balanced skewed towards malt sweetness. Passably dextrinous in mouthfeel, almost creamy. Finishes honeyish, bready and lightly bitter. Very much ESB like. A session pale. More hop character would have been lent better balance.

Cask Version. Amber in color. Suprisingly malt driven in the aroma with a hint of butter toffee and cookies along with a touch of citrus fruits, herbs and Chanel fragrances. Nice malt flavor with a variety of hop notes (peach, lemon). I preferred the texture and feel of the cask version compared to the draught version.

On cask at Cooper Smith's Pub & Brewery on 8/15/10. Looks like this one has come out of retirement.

A - Clear bronzed orange liquid with copper tones and a creamy, milky white head that reduced to a quarter inch of retention but deposited a thick coat of opaque, sheet-like lacing all over the sides of the glass.

S - Not a whole lot of hop aroma, surprisingly, although some floral and perfumy hop notes eventually emerge, as do some soft pine notes. Malt provides a sweet counterpoint to the subtle hop aroma.

T - The malt character first comes to mind with toasted bread and grains as well as sweet caramel. Hops again take a back seat, and the flavor falls somewhere between an ESB and Pale Ale. While the hop presence is pretty understated, it is still pretty darn tasty.

M - Thin and watery but with a smooth cask mouthfeel overall. Finishes with a slight dryness and mild lingering bitterness on the palate.

D - Fine cask conditioned ale overall, but it didn't really scream hops. Still, I found this to be a tasty offering that remained drinkable throughout.

from the cask this pale ale poured a very dense copper color with a mellow off white head about an inch tall. the nose is very fresh. its woody and smells like a christmas tree. lots of sap and essential hops, but the flavor doesnt carry that though from the smell. its more balanced in taste, with an english malt profile tempering what i thought would be pretty aggresive piney hops. the beer only gets bitter at the end, and is pretty low key overall. the mouthfeel works well from the cask, light mild carbonation under a pretty thick body for an american pale. its smooth going down and plenty strong. i reckon this is a really nice fall beer, worthy of a big slab of red meat.

A: Mostly clear with a little but of cloud in the pour. Thick, white head gives way to some lacing.

S: Light hop in the nose. Notes of citrus and a little bit of sourness present. Mostly smells of pleasant bitterness

T: Hops at the forefront, but not too strong. Balanced by a good amount of malt flavor. There's a sense of grapefruit and pine, especially in the lingering aftertaste.

M: Pretty crisp at first, more medium-bodied and thicker on the swallow. Plenty of carbonation here.

A solid example of a PA/IPA. Not too heavy and a pleasant enough taste, that may be a little lighter than expected, but still very good.
