3.48/5 rDev -14.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - a very eye appealing burnt orange that is dusk in a glass. A light but persistent head that has a few rogue bubbles giving it some nice texture.
S - Earthy tea like hops with some malty sweetness underneath. Not a strong or inducing odor but once I got my nose inside the glass I was ready to get to the drinkin'
T - No real sweetness on the tip of the tongue. The hops start over the middle but they don't seem wrapped around anything and lack any distinct flavors. The finish is dry with some lingering hop bitterness. Given the great appearance and odor I was expecting something more dynamic.
M - Besides the appearance this is the strength of the beer. It's light and crisp with strong but not overbearing carbonation while leaving a nice coat on the tongue.
O - This beer has a high drinkability quotient and stays true to the American Pale Ale style. I will happily finish my 24 ouncer, but still it left me wanting more.

A: a little cloudy dark orange amber with good off white head and ok lacing
S: smells kinda odd to me, kind of a little spicy and piney with some malt at the end
T: taste is what makes this beer, its very well balanced and super easy to drink. Got a nice spicy and hop taste to it with some sweet malt lingering and a great slightly bitter after taste
M: good mouthfeel but i suck at reviewing mouthfeel
O: for taste is probably in my top 10 wish it was easier to find as its a great price and easy to drink
