Best by 12/12/12. Whoa.

A: Pours a clear, light copper with a little bit of foamy head.

S: A pretty nice balance of bready malt and hops.

T: Same as nose. Very balanced. You get a little hop bite at first, then there's this malt backbone that lingers. Well done.

M: Really good levels of carbonation. Light-medium bodied. This makes for a great session pale ale.

O: Just an excellent pale ale. I could, and sometimes do, drink this all night.

Best by 9/18/12...nice. Purchased 9/29/2012. Oh well, I'm sure it's fine. Just happy to get some!
Tall, rocky ivory head tops an amber colored ale. Great retention and just stellar lacing all.the.way.down.the.glass! Aromas and tastes are very similar with notes of bready malt, caramel, toffee, earthy citrus tones, somewhat fruity. Mouth-feel is creamy, smooth, medium, excellently balanced. Overall, one of the best APA's I've ever had, regardless of the best by date....it was fine.
