I had this on tap at the brew pub in Flagstaff, AZ.
A: clear medium amber, with a tiny off-white head. Minimal lacing.

The aroma was mainly hoppy, mostly of the citrus and piney variety, and reasonably strong.
Tasting revealed a rather strong malt component, leaving this pale ale less hoppy than it should be for style. Acceptable sweet/bitter balance nonetheless.

Mouthfeel: carbonation was a bit too low and the body was too watery. Faint astringency.

O: not bad; not worth seeking out.

A - pours with a small head of white foam on top of a clear, golden body. The head settles quick, but leaves nice lace.

S - some sweaty and pine hop notes with toffee make character.

T - bready malt with musty hops up front. Some pine and just a touch of grapefruit in the middle with toasty malt that is balanced by a moderate bitterness.

M - medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - drinkable enough, the hop character is a bit bland in the flavor, but the aroma is nice. A petty average pale ale overall.
