They mention on the label that this bottle was once considered "quite hoppy" but is a "nicely balanced American Pale Ale". The first clue that something is "different" is that the color is quite dark for a "Pale Ale". Not bad, just darker, more like an IPA or Double IPA actually. Smell is a bit muted, which is to be expected for a Pale Ale. But you do get the hops pretty quickly, with slight caramel malts. Taste is fairly balanced though, just as advertised. Slight hops bitterness up front, but fades quickly with the malts and a little grass taste after that. Finishes quickly though, doesn't stick around long.

Overall, this one is good but not great. I'd give it a B+ if I was grading it. Interested to see what some others have to say about the other bottle I have...
