look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a really hazy golden orange with a big fluffy white head that sticks around and leaves some really nice lacing. A great looking beer.
S: Light biscuit and lemon zest dominate. A hint of tropical fruits and some grassiness too. Fairly light nose, not surprising.
T: Has a really nice balance of light biscuit malts and citrus hops. Mainly lemon and a little bit of grapefruit. A hint of honey like sweetness with the biscuit malt. The hops and malt are both pretty mild, but still provides a lot of flavor. Really clean and refreshing.
M: Light body, average carbonation, but not prickly at all.
O: Great drinkability. May be my new go too summer session beer. Love the lower abv. The can design is pretty damn sweet too.
Serving type: can

3.93/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Aroma: Citrus and Pineapple hop aroma, with a white bread and saltine malt aroma in the back. No DMS, I perceive just a tiny bit of diacetyl but that could very easily be the galaxy.
Appearance: Opaque orange to amber color with a large white head and lingering creamy looking carbonation.
Taste: Citrus bitterness is very upfront, orange peel. Some malt backbone (wheat-like) but it is certainly hop-forward. Piney hop flavor becomes more apparent as the beer warms.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and very creamy because of the lingering head. Medium carbonation, perfect for style.
Overall: A good pale ale that has the bitterness of an IPA. If I could change anything I would up the aroma and decrease the upfront bitterness in the flavor just a bit. I like this beer a lot, especially at the price point.
