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

Had on tap in a pint glass. Deep copper color with slight cloudiness and nice one finger head. Smells of slight hop presence, but soft. First sip is smooth. Decent hop presence, but balanced well with the malts. I would say a nicely balanced beer with nothing overdone. More kick than most pale ales, though. Good finish, a very drinkable beer.
