look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - Deep clear copper color, 2 finger fluffy white head that dissipates pretty quick, nice chunky lacing.

S - Not outstanding. Rather subtle aroma. Has an herbal, spicy, floral nose. Nothing leaping out.

T - Crackers, spicy floral hop bite, and a long bitter finish round this one out. More pepper floral tats lingers after the finish. I remember this beer slightly sweeter, maltier, little citrus and floral notes. It isn't there on this one. The bottle is fresh so I'm not sure, if I revisit and it changes I'll update.

M - Crisp, sharp sting on the tongue from the carbonation and a slightly dry and crisp finish.

O - I remember this being sweeter, more citrusy, floral and better. The bottle is fresh this just didn't grab me like I remember it once did a few months ago. Straight forward pale ale, a solid go to in the right setting, but not something I see myself seeking out over other options.
