There is already hundreds of reviews for this beer so I will keep it brief and to the point. Pours a nice golden amber color with a slight white head that left some nice lacing. Hops are definatly present in the smell with citrus notes. The flavor is very similar to the smell with the hops being upfront but not too much so and a bit of malt and spice is present too. It also has a slight bitter after taste and the mouthfeel is good. The best thing about this beer is its availability, this can be found either on tap or atleast in the bottle and a wide variety of establishments. A good beer to covert macro drinkers over with in my experience, a good taste but not too aggresive.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
