3.14/5 rDev -7.6%
From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #77 (June 2013):
LOOK: Hazy gold, clingy foam head
SMELL: Ripe stone fruit, bready, musty
TASTE: Crisp carbonation, smooth, slick, malty sweet, bready, toasty, caramel, faint citrus, orange marmalade, herbal; grainy, dry finish
In a beer world seemingly dominated by IPAs, this one falls short of what most might expect: a pronounced hop character. Label boasts, “a cornucopia of five hop varieties, which yield striking flavor and aroma,” however, it’s really more of a Pale Ale, and an average one at that.

Geez I don't get all the ho-hum reviews of this- I really like it! Poured at a good temperature with a medium sized, foamy, cream-colored head that soon subsided to a light cover and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy orange amber with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is hops up front with resin, citrus, spice, malt in the background and a bit of wet cardboard. Flavor's much like nose with tang and hop on top a hint of sweet below. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, has some significant alcohol warmth, and is quite long. Very drinkable.
