Extremely bland, was sick though.

Crisp fresh hoppy but less so than other DFH brews. Nice summer ale. Prefer their bolder styles but would recommend, especially for a less adventurous drinker profile - May 4, 2014
DFH never said that they're shooting for a particular style. You could argue that it's a Pale Ale, so it should act like one. It does, but in it's own, unique, refreshing way. The color is pleasantly light with good lacing. The aroma is fresh and round - not overwhelming on the malt or the hops. I rated the taste as exceptional, not because it fulfills any particular style parameters, but because it pleases me a great deal. In fact, the well-roundness of the flavor profile is what truly makes this brew stand out. The flavors coated my buds for a good 10-15 minutes after the last sip, with no regrets at both refrigerator temperature and at rest. Good job, Dogfish Head!

Not bad, while I prefer dogfish's bolder ales, this one still holds a good amount of flavor for a pale.
