3.25/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

This was poured into a pint glass at the brewpub. The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange to red color with a slim soft white foamy bar pour’s kind of head. Lacing is speckled after the head dies. The smell had a sweet caramel malt over top of a light citrus and light pine. The taste had a malty sweetness over the citrus sweetness and the light pine to balance decently. Semi-sticky caramel aftertaste leading into a sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sessionable feel about it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good pale ale with food, American, maybe not so much, as it definitely leads towards the English side.

Dubbed with the same name, followed by 2013, this years incarnation is 4.4% ABV and was served on-tap in a shaker pint, and it's a bright, gold-copper coloring with a white, filmy head. Nose of caramel and peppery hops, with citrus sweet highlights. Bitter and resiny hops forward, with a caramel backbone and lemony highlights towards the end. Smooth and light bodied. Semisweet and bitter aftertaste, with a clean, dry finish. Very refreshing, and very easy to drink.
