Blue Heron Pale Ale

12 oz single from Mac’s, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Hazy, lemon colored pour with (as others have mentioned in their reviews) perhaps a light tinge or hint of green – an odd color indeed. Creamy, piled high head with some pretty nice lacing. Appearance is nice.

Aroma – clean hops, quite astrigent.

As is typical for an American IPA, this is very hoppy to the point of being soap like. Very pronounced bitterness and drying, lingering aftertaste.

A pretty good example of the style, but a little too puckeringly bitter for my English IPA tastes!
