look: 5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A: Poured a hazy pale orange color with good carbonation leaving a huge white frothy head, loads of lacing, great head retention and a nice white collar and bubbles. Seriously great looking.

S: Grainy, some citrus notes, stale. Pretty underwhelming.

T: Initial sordove bitterness upfront with a graininess blended with fruity hop flavor. The finish is rather long, bland, bitter and again underwhelming

M: Light-medium body, well carbonated. Stale, some fruits are really subdued.

O: I'm glad I dont have to drink this as my local APA everyday.

16 oz. can. Pours a mainly clear, golden-orange color with a good, frothy off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is pale malts, a hint of biscuit, lemon, a bit of pine, and a hint of esters. Flavor is similar, a hint of bread, mainly lemon/citrus hops, and a bit of earthiness. Light-to-medium mouthfeel, dry, crisp, and a moderately bitter finish. Very good pale ale, quite drinkable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A - Deep gold, white cap has good retention and lace.

S/T - Big caramel sweet malts, finishes with a leafy pine bitterness. Not getting too much depth here.

M - Solid medium body, medium carbonation. Stays smooth across the palate, a little oily.

O - Finishes a bit sweet for my liking with the hops not really getting much depth of flavor or aroma. Finish is kind of an ambiguous bitterness without much flavor other than pine.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear burnt golden color. About 1.5" of egg shell white head forms, which has very good retention, aided by moderate to high carbonation. Overall, nice looking pale ale.

Smell: Caramel malt backbone comes through first, followed by a nice citrus hop punch. Nice melon and mango notes.

Taste: Nice caramel malt backbone to this pale ale. The Galaxy hops in this really shine on the back end, with mango and melon and citrus. Not much bitterness, just a lot of citrus.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light to medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation. Pretty easy drinking and quite sessionable. Overall, I liked this pale ale quite a bit. Definitely one of the top Tallgrass brews, and one I will definitely drink again in the future.
