Copper in color. Didn't really smell like much until it warmed up a bit. Smell is mostly malt with a hint of hops. Taste is much like the smell. Hearty malt backbone with just a bit of hops at the back end to round it out. This is more my style of pale ale. Solid offering from flying dog.

355ml bottle. Tumbler glass. Enjoyed on sepĀ“12. Slightly orangish gold in color. Haze. Beige froth. Quite lasting & close crown. Strong resins, candies & caramel malts to the nose. Quince & tangerine hues. Citric underneath too. Flavor profile shows well balanced mildy toasted malts & hops. Medium & flavorful body. Medium to high carbonation. Buttery & oily texture. Refreshing bitterness in the middle. Fruity & resiny finish. Hoppy aftertaste.

355ml Bottle from Vino Wines, Edinburgh:
Bright orange with a large, three centimetre tall head that is a creamy white colour and looks quite foamy, holding pretty well.

Hoppy and with some good, sweet malts and a sort of biscuit malt aroma. There is a few citrus and floral notes coming through as well and this is backed up by some lighter caramel and some sweet but light malts.

Sweet caramel malts and the floral hops that strike you first. There is some pine hops too but these are more subdued and I could detect some citrus, more caramel and a mild, fruit flavour with some sugar towards the end along with some bitterness.

Medium bodied although on the lighter side of medium and with a nice smooth, bitter feel to the beer that is rounded off with a light citrus tang. The carbonation is moderate and it goes down great, really hitting the spot and it was pretty refreshing too.

Wonderfully balanced with malts and hops both featuring, a nice smooth and refreshing feel to it and a great smell that is backed up by the taste. One of the best I've had from an American brewery I think, particularly from the relatively lower abv. ones.
