Defintly more american and citrusy than their ipa. I prefer this. One of my favoriste of their main lineup. Balanced, nice ctirus, big for a pale ale. Pairs with several foods. Great session beer, hot or cold weather, very versatile. A great selection and will compete with the best pale ales in the country.

A: Pours a golden-orange color with a small white head that dissipates quickly.  Minimal lacing is left behind on the edges of the glass. 

S: The maltiness caught my attention first.  A really nice malty sweetness that balances out the citrusy hop profile.  Not much else going on here.  Good, but pretty typical. 

T: The hops come out first with some citrus fruits.  The maltiness is just as solid as it was in the aroma providing a sweetness that vies for dominance with the hops.  Pretty good balance, despite the lack of complexity.  

M: Thinner side of medium-bodied with a good bit of carbonation.  Smooth and creamy with a gentle drying effect on the finish. 

D: Pretty standard pale ale that doesn't disappoint.  Huge malt profile that I rather enjoy.  The hop profile is ample and tasty, too.  Pretty enjoyable brew.

A: This poured clear gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like very faint copper and burnt caramel.
T: It tasted like faint but sweet caramel and come copper hops and bready yeast. It had a very clean aftertaste that was a bit bittersweet.
M: It was watery with a little carbonation. Light body.
D: This was a decent pale ale, but nothing special. The scent and taste were bland but very easy to drink. Not a bad beer, but easily forgettable.

bottle picked up in NC the other day.

a - opened and filled my duck rabbit snifter. nice orange color, transparent with a thin bubbly head that fizzed away rather quickly. looks pretty classic pale ale.

s - nice citric hop presence evened out by a good malt backbone. a touch of wheaty earthiness. nice, classic.

t - much like the nose a soft citric hop presence with a great counter balance with a flavorful malt. classic pale ale. good subtle sweetness. it just works.

m - a bit on the thin side. easy drinking...could have 10 in a night.

o - overall, this is a classic pale ale. very nice, very unoffensive. soft hop presence, but not over bearing. if you like pale ales, you will enjoy this. just solid, just good.

Half finger frothy head with some lacing on a crimson with amber hues clear body. Very aromatous with lots of grapefruit, pineapple and some pine notes. The hops are subdued in this one. The finish is mostly light hips with citrus and pine notes. Initially caramel malt and floral. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not very dry. A very drinkable, somewhat safe pale ale.

Pours a clear golden on a Pint glass. 1 inch head dissipates into a 1/2 inch lacing that lingers till the end.
Bready, grains and a bit of pine scent.
Very smooth on the tongue, with hops kept at bay.
Low carbonation, refreshing and very drinkable. Nothing complex, though.
A decent American pale ale.
