look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours copper with a 1/4" of thick, foamy, white head that has great retention. The nose has notes of faint malts, bread, and floral hops. The taste is lightly bready up front followed by a moderate floral, pineappley hop character. The hops leave a slight bitterness on the palate after the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, smooth, and well carbonated.

This is a smooth, easy drinking pale ale. The flavor profile is moderate, but for a pale ale its solid and rather complex. This is one of the first craft beers I had when in college, and I get more whenever I can.

Pours copper yellow with a thick, fluffy head like a cross-section of a slice of white bread. Lacing indicates sticky hops (and it's right). Smell is piney hops with a sweetness behind it, sort of a glutinous smell. Taste is spicy, piney hops up front and biscuity malts in the back, with an almost cidery note in there somewhere. Mouthfeel is pleasantly carbonated. Not a bad APA at all, but there are better.
