look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into my Goose Island tulip glass.

A: Light amber with a slight haze. Tall white head with good retention and lacing.

S: Nose picked up hints of dusty flowers and soap.

T: Was similar mostly floral hops with a orange kick.

M: Medium to light. Finish was dry and tangy.

O: I like this one, it brought back memories of the decorative soap I use to see in the guest bathroom at my grandparents house in the 70's. Plus I live in Florida and its always sunny here.

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

A: Princeton orange coloring, slight haze with a moderately paced display of micro-bubbles. The head is 1 inch, oat colored, milky-frothy in texture, with a moderately rate of retention. A low visual appeal of lacing.

S: Dry orange and pine for aroma, flowery, citrus and grapefruit. Herbaceous notes of parsely, dry celery, with a pretty good show of hops for a pale.

T: Citrusy grapefruit with dry oranges, flowery hops with some toasted sweet speciality grains. A bit of pine, spicy herbaceous note, piney-alcohol dry fade. Nice maltiness, good depth adding substance and backbone.

M: Spicy mouthful, herbaceous grapefruit, light-medium body, decent amount of carbonation presence with a dry hoppy fade of flowery pine and grapefruit.

O: Good rate of drinkability, spicy herbaceous, dry show of west coast hops and good malt support for balance. Likeable.

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

A: This poured a clear gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like lemongrass with some copper and fresh wheat
T: It tasted like copper and lemon hops, with some honey and fresh wheat. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a nice pale ale with ok scent, but great taste on par with many IPAs. The body was good with a mellow finish, so it was easy to drink. Not ground breaking, but a solid and enjoyable brew.

2.55/5  rDev -24.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Appearance - orange hazy color. No head whatsoever on this beer.

Smell - citrusy. Smells like a mix of oranges and grapefruits. Actually smells quite nice.

Taste - unfortunately it really just does not live up to the smell, or any of the other average pale ales on the market.

Mouthfeel - average

Overall - I really don't think I would drink this again, nor would I recommend it to friends
