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

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some grassy hop aromas. Taste is much the same with malty and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a nice hoppy presence in the smell and taste.

2.9/5  rDev -21.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Pours an opaque golden hue with a short white head that quickly thins to a ring.

S: Some peach, orange and mango in a faint nose. Also a bit of malt, pine and grapefruit rind.

T: Perhaps past it's prime, taste is on the malty side, if a bit stale. Some orange and grapefruit peel comes through, along with a touch of pine. Not so much hoppy as it is bitter on the finish.

M: Medium bodied, not really smooth.

O: I am surprised, given how good some of their beers are, that this is so mediocre. Would not recommend. I need an IPA.
