Poured from a 12oz bottle.

A copper orange body with sizeable head. The hops are present immediately with grapefruit notes and some mineral. Nice lingering finish, a pleasant pale ale.

Pretty yellow-Amber color.

Good hoppy smell: floral upfront, but definitely some sweeter malty notes.

Taste fairly consistent with smell (but a little worse): bright hoppy notes up high, with a sweet but subdued malty base; doesn't hit the whole tongue.

Feels a bit too carbonated and bright - distracts from taste a bit and feels just slightly cold, rough, dry, maybe a little wheatie.

Enjoyable beer. I might buy it again if it's on sale again, but otherwise, I'll keep exploring.

12 oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Straw yellow with 1 finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity with light carbonation.

Grapefruit zest, pine, and bright florals.

Traditional flavors of grapefruit and pine. Floral with a slight earthy hop note. Light honey maltiness. Finishes clean.

Medium bodied, crisp, clean, and lightly bitter.

Very traditional take on an APA. Crisp and refreshing.

Not usually a fan of dry hopped ales, but this is actually one of the better tasting dry hopped ales I've tried. Golden/amber colored with very foamy head, slightly bitter tasting, with a piney and moderately dry, but not overpowering finish. Overall a solid pale ale and wouldn't mind drinking again, but probably wouldn't be my first choice for a pale ale

12 oz bottle.
Poured with a huge, foamy head that rose up and over the edges of the glass even with a partial pour. This head looked like it belonged on a milkshake.
Very appealing, sweet aroma seems a touch malty to style, but tasting reveals a hop-dominated, moderately bitter flavor.
Very smooth and soft feel, with a medium body and medium+ carbonation.

Updated to a full review on 2/22/16. This beer has a nice color, like a toasted gold. Head is unimpressive, though, and dissipates pretty quickly. Limited active carbonation. Smell is not complex: tart grapefruit hops are all I can discern. Slightly more complexity on the palate. The hops provide an initial bite that fades, and there are clear malt undertones that build. The lack of carbonation leaves this beer with a soft mouthfeel that's relatively pleasant. Overall, an average APA offering that gains points for approachability.

A: This poured a nearly clear gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like citrus hops and lemon zest, with a little sweet honey malt.
T: It tasted like sweet honey and mild citrus hops. It had a clean and creamy bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a below average pale ale, with a basic scent and taste and body. The finish was really smooth, so it was quite easy to drink. Not worth trying more than once.
