Poured from the bottle into a chilled pint glass. Extremely well balanced. Moderately hopped with a nice malt undertone. Amber in color with a with a robust, white head that laces nicely. A very nice beer indeed. Could easily enjoy several of these in one sitting.

This is an above average beer. It pours a nice deep golden color with a finger of off white head. There was some lacing left on the glass. I noticed a nice bitterness, I think it was from the 45 IBU's which to me is pleasant and mild.

Copper colored beer with a rapidly fading head. The usual pine and citrus of an APA but not overboard which I like. I am not a big fan of hoppy beers but this one is OK.

Pours fairly dark for a pale ale. Malty flavor.

L: Light brown/orange colored beer, clear, great head retention
S: Sweet caramel, brown sugar, light citrus and fruit aromas
T: Very lightly sweet up front, rounded out by a grain or bread flavor. And then finishes with a light hop bitterness
F: Light, pretty easy drinking, really refreshing with a nice hop finish to keep thing balanced out in regard to bitterness. High-medium carbonation
O: Enjoyable pale. Something that can be tossed back really easy, but doesn't hold back in regard to flavor. Different than pales I'm used to but certainly a fan of this.
