look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: A nice copper hue with a thick 1.5 finger head that dissipates slowly to a steady, thin coating over the beer; the lacing is good

S: Subtle hops that give it a bit of a flowery smell; there is also a nice grainy aroma; there isn't as much in the scent as I would hope but it works well

T: A very balanced brew with a good amount of hops but not overwhelming-kind of what an APA should be; there is also a graininess in the aftertaste

F: Slightly thin but for the most part this beer has a nice balanced mouthfeel; the carbonation works well too

D: One of the most drinkable, reliable, accesible beers out there; this is the definition of a session beer.

Nice floral aroma. Dark orange color with a creamy white head. Slightly cloudy. Taste is all hops, very citric, with grapefruit. Medium high carbonation. Good hops. Lots of hops. Cascade hops. An extremely enjoyable and refreshing pale ale. Availability of this one makes it the uber-session brew.
