4.22/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: slightly hazy copper, with two fingers of bright white head that leaves decent lacing
S: lots of citrus and pine hops with a hint of grainy malt
T: like pure white grapefruit juice, some pine, a nice mild caramel sweetness to balance the firm bitterness
M: nice and crisp, not overly carbonated, smooth not oily at all
D: This is my standby session beer I can drink these all night and sometimes I do, my only problem is that sometimes after 5 or 6 I develop some mild heartburn that seems to only happen with this beer
This is one of the beers that made me realize that I love hops, I remember being 13 and going to my yuppie aunt and uncle's house for holidays and they would always have this in the fridge, needless to say it was love at first sip.

4.11/5 rDev +1.7%

A: Pours a clear golden with a dense white head. Very lice lacing and retention.
S: This beer smells of balance. Perfect balance of floral citrus hops, light caramel and very light grainy sweet malt. A wee bit of pilsner like aroma is present. Neither the hops nor malt take over the aroma.
T: Starts with a beautiful floral Citrusy, grapefruit and mild pine flavor followed by a lemony citrus in the mid palate. Bitterness is present but subdued and balanced to the sweet malt flavor. The light lemon character and hop flavor persists in a semi dry finish. Quite a complex hop flavor going on here.
M:Medium body with a velvety texture. moderate carbonation. Smooth.
O: This is one of the best overall pale ales I've ever had. Balance is the word here. It's a complex variety of flavors that each have their own identity and distinct flavors are identifiable through the finish. A very smooth and easy drinking beer.
