3.18/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.

Dark orange pour. Two fingers of creamy, fluffy foam retain pretty well. Sadly, no real lacing on the glass.

Lightly sweet, citric hop aroma. Promising, but the flavor unfortunately does not match up. It's got a quick citric hop burst (Sweetwater 420 and Terrapin Hopsecutioner come to mind) that quickly fades to sweetness. No real bitterness. A somewhat tinny, metallic flavor, too. Bready, especially grainy in the finish.

Medium-bodied. High carbonation. Tingly feel. Not really the easiest drinker. Some "off" flavors. Definitely has potential, though, and it still a decent pale ale. I hope to re-visit this one in the future.

3.91/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance-Golden yellow to straw with an eggshell foam.

Smell-Light berries and cut grass. Some citrus secondary.

Taste-Scorch takes the place of the fruit on the front and green vegetables with barbecue on the back end.

Mouthfeel-Light-Mid body, medium length on the finish.

Overall-This beer looks and smells fantastic. I wish the berry aromas had stuck around for the flavor. It was a little heavy handed on that barbecue/charcoal. I also wish the finish had lingered longer. Loved the nose though.
