3.51/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Lake Placid Pub and Brewery pint glass
From: VONS in Montecito (Santa Barbara), Calif.
Price: $8.99 (w/ a VONS card) for a 6-pack
Purchased: May 23, 2014
Consumed: May 24, 2014
Misc.: Bottled on April 8, 2014

Poured a dark honey, orange, clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of foamy white head. Below average foamy sporadic lacing on the sides of the glass. Above average retention.

Smelled wet cascade hops, caramel malts, soap, pine, lime zest, citrus hops and flora hops.

Tasted similar to the nose, but a tad better overall. More like an IPA than a pale ale. Soapy, wet cascade hops, pine, floral hops, citrus hops, wheat, honey and caramel.

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter abrupt finish.

An OK pale ale, but nothing I would need to have again.

3.26/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a golden color with a hint of amber to it, minimal head and no lacing.

Smell has a strong caramel malt backing with a slight musty aroma from the hops, fairly mild overall though with no real strong aromas.

Taste starts out with the caramel malt, very slick tasting right away that almost has an oily feeling but that doesn't last, mild bitterness in the finish but nothing that really speaks to citrus or pine, carbonation is in the medium range and helps lend a decent body.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Smells nice, pleasant hop aroma. Then things go downhill from there. Taste of onion and garlic with a bad lingering aftertaste. This is my second attempt with this beer. I want it to be good but it's not. Disappointed. I have to add more words here because beer advocate requires it. Blah blah blah. It sucked.
