New Jersey

4.24/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Great, nice lacing, original foam rocky, great carbonation. Very nice clear pale golden color. Coats the glass nicely.

S - Originally thought it had a slight butter aroma, but apparently the flowery components off the hops nice. Aroma nice to ok.

M - Beautiful mouth feel. Nicely rounded.

T - Hops and malt balanced nicely in front and middle. You can get the bitter hop kick at the end. Great for their goal but not for my tastes that prefer less hops.

O - Outstanding for a slightly hoppy pale ale. I took 0.25 off score since I do not plan to buy again. Got it for the bottles and a great deal at 0.93 cent / bottle combined with an Amazon $20 off. If it wasn't the final hop taste it might be a go to. Great job Sierra Nevada!

The comment on the bottle label "Each bottle is conditioned naturally" I have to look up? conditioned in the bottle, yeast not filtered?
