look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Orange/copper with a white head, somewhat translucent.

S: Orange and orangelike fruits. Tangerine, mango, sweet fruit, smells delicious.

T: Tastes as good as it smells with that delicious orange and mango character, sweet fruits, tangerine, mango, over a light malt backbone.

M: Medium-light body, average pale ale carbonation.

O: This is a delicious pale ale! It's available everywhere, but I've only had an experience like the one described in these notes at the brewery. Other times I've felt it harsh on carbonation or lacking in the citrusy goodness.
