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

A: Pours an ever so slight hazy copper with a nice creamy dense white head. Good lacing, good retention.

S: Predominant grapefruit and citrus aroma with a citrusy orange malt note coming through. slight bit of candied ginger.

T: Grapefruit, pine and citrus in the forefront with a mild earthy hop underbelly. A mild orange malt sweetness fills in the background and fades fairly quickly. Nice lingering bitterness of grapefruit and an ever so slight green apple with a bit of bread crust late in a dry finish. I suspect being a pale beer, the Orange notes are coming from a hops addition.

M: Medium carbonation, not too overpowering. Doesn't bite the tongue. Medium light body with a slight oily finish.

O: Very good example of the style. The hop bitterness is nice and the hops are clean and fresh tasting. The malt notes are a bit underwhelming for my taste. I like a clean separation between the hop bite and the malt presence, the lines are a bit blurred in this area. All I all, It's a well done beer. I myself like a slight bit more malt presence but it's just a matter of personal preference. Still a really nice brew.
