Super drinkable. Nice subtle bitterness I wasn't expecting.

Another part of a trade. Again, many thanks.

Appearance: Light golden body with a lacy white head.

Smell: Fantastic! First whiff is like fresh hops with a sweetness and something else I can't quite put my finger on.

Taste: Light, and hoppy. As it warms I get kind of an unbalanced bitterness that is a bit disappointing after that first smell. There's also a cracker almost yeasty taste going on.

Mouth Feel: Light body with pleasant bubbles.

Overall: A satisfying beer but goes slightly wrong for me somewhere, probably in that slight bitterness unbalance I picked up. I don't think the carb helped that so much later on in the beer but a decent bottle nonetheless.

The beer comes in a darker blonde straw yellow.

The aroma is of classic American hops. Orange, lemon zest, floral, fruity honey sweetness.

The flavor follows of that hint of honey sweetness, then lots of grapefruit peel and pith throughout. A medium plus bitterness of grapefruit, floral, and grassy and pine.

A crackery malt profile makes this beer slightly different from a classic American pale ale, which this very much tastes like (SN Pale Ale, Bear Republic Grand Am).
