Nose: fruit and resiny, piney hops
An enormous, persistent, rocky bone white head takes up 2/3s of the glass and perches over a brilliant reddish amber body. Excellent lace.
Palate: light grains, light fruit, and piney, resiny hops.
Medium body and above average carbonation.

A great tasting Pale on tap at the brewpub. I had this right after their ESB. They were almost exactly the same color, a nice dark amber. It was decidedly hoppy, but still had a good balance. The hops were of the earthy spicy variety, not fruity or piney like a typical American IPA. The beer was very smooth, I kept liking it better as the glass neared the empty mark. Highly recommended for anyone who likes a good Pale Ale.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/23/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange, apple, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toast, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange, apple, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange, apple, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and solid complexity of citrus/earthy hops, bready malt, and light yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and some slight cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly prickly/sticky mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this was a very solid English pale ale. Good balance and solid complexity of citrus/earthy hops, bready malt, and light yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
