The pale ale is as straightforward as the label on the bottle. Huge piney and floral hop aromas introduce the beer and are supported by light notes of bread and caramel. Pour this beer into a glass and contemplate how such a stunningly still, beautiful, brilliantly clear, amber body can support such a dense, rocky white head. The medium-light body with similar carbonation -- lower than expected for the style -- delivers a moderate hop bitterness and complex hop flavor of mint, floral, tropical fruit with lingering mango atop a crisp, grainy and bready malt backbone that are all laced together with thin strands of red apple. Head to your local pub and enjoy a couple of these with their house burger and tater tots.
