look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Beautiful light amber color, yellowish orange in the light. Very little foam, still a beautiful beer overall.

S - Light notes of malt Very strong hop presence, slightly citrus, mostly pine. Smells like a balanced beer to me!

T - Bright hoppy front, slight biscuit malts underneath, all around balanced and sweet. Not overly bitter but maintains it's clean, refreshing hop pallet. Tasty start to finish. Full of flavor without being a sip-only.

M - Light syrup feel, active carbonation, very refreshing. Not thick compared to many pale ales, but still more heft than a lager. Nice and smooth.

O - I will drink this beer every day for the rest of my life. Well, not really, but I now know when I want something that is not too heavy or too punchy with flavor, this beer will do the trick. Very tasty, refreshing.
