A- Cloudy pour, (beware of some sediment at the bottom, yeast and whatnot) 1 finger head with good glass cling. Dark copper yellow color.

S- Light hop aroma, sweet citrus, could almost benefit from an orange wedge in there. A bit of pith-like bitterness.

T- Citrus hops. A good strong bitterness in the finish. This beer gives you way more on the palate than it does for your nose. Bold flavors.

M- A good balance. Just right in my opinion.

O- As a hop head in training I am still getting used to bitter finishes from beers. IPAs and APAs are still a work in progress but this one is a drinkable beer for me. The sweet citrus notes help to tame the bitterness in the finish to make this one very palatable. High marks for the this one on flavor.

Pale amber beer with a lovely crusty foam head. Light, fluffy, airy, well-retained, and lacing all down the glass wall.

Florally bombastic with a good deal of citrus rind aromas and chunky biscuity malts. Leafy green and dosing with the bitterness. Delivering the nose.

Bolstered citrus and flowery hop cone with that good and dry pale malt backing. A hint of melon rind in there, too. Quintessential APA components here.

Crispy feel with aggressive bitter-carb punch and a dry body to punch through. A good feel for a hoppy pale ale.

Excellent pale ale. Not a top ten choice for me, but it's hard to say why.
