3.7/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear gold/peach with a small head. Everything was tasting weird yesterday, all the aromas were strange. This one was like dipping your face into a fresh bag of weed. Really juicy, resinous, thick and it was kind of alluring like that. Some softer citrus. Mouth is more marijuana ho resin and a long finish of pine bitterness. Pretty one dimensional on the flavor. Aside from the juicy marijuana nose on this it's pretty uninteresting.

Had this again today to make sure something wasn't wrong with my palate, it's just not a great beer. Flavor profile is flat and singular, without much attempt at balance or a journey of flavors along the palate.

4.1/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: a golden orange. a little bit on the lighter side of the color with some yellow in it. hazy but not quite opaque. a two finger head that fades slowly leaving a sticky lacing on the sides and some foam on the top

Smell: immediately greeted with flowery hops. minor notes of citrus and sweet malts. slight german malts to the smell.

Taste: opens with a mixture of flowery hops, mixed with a slight citrus hint along with some munich malts and a lighter crystal sweetness.

Mouthfeel: moderately bitter but a good level for a pale ale. light and drinkable.

Overall: a tasty and impressive pale ale. lots of taste and hop character without leaving anything out. a good intro to half acre and lives up to everything it should.

Solid pale ale. I tend to prefer fruitier hop flavors/aromas than stood out from this which was more of a bittering hop, but it was not overwhelmingly bitter by any stretch. I will certainly have this beer again. I'd love to try the double daisy cutter if I can ever find it in philadelphia.

Thanks again to Core 42 for being so generous!

APPEARANCE (4.0) - Served from a pint can into a pilsner glass. Poured a russet-gold color with great clarity and a good finger and a half to two fingers of powdery-white head. This looks luscious for a pale ale.

SMELL (4.75) - And it smells incredible. Just super-juicy with over the top fruit aromatics. The malt bill lends some sweetness to the hops which gives the overall nose a marmalade quality. A malange of lemon, orange, grapefruit and most of all tangerine. Smells wonderful.

TASTE (4.0) - Easily the most flavorful and complex pale ale I've ever tasted. Starts off with a malt sweetness which is initially drowned out by a surprisingly resinous pine and followed by a refreshingly clean finish. Incredibly drinkable. As it warms, the malt starts to hold its own a bit more and other hop-influences flavors such as lemon rind and mint leaf join the party. And in the mingling of herbal hops and pale graininess we get a touch of spring grass on the finish. Delicious and now I want to do a side-by-side with this, SNPA, and Stone Go To IPA.

MOUTHFEEL (4.0) - Watery? Yes, but it's a pale ale, it's supposed to be. By the smell I half expected it to drink like an IPA, but it has all the taste with a much lighter feel. Not overly carbonated, which is good here because it lets the malt bill linger on your tongue for a minute. But don't let that fool you. Ultimately, this beer has an amazingly clean finish to it that leaves you wanting more and more.

OVERALL (4.25) - The best pale ale I've ever had. Better than SNPA (as far as I can rememeber), better than Mirror Pond, and yes, better than Zombie Dust (by a fair margin if you ask me). I'm surprised this isn't rated significantly higher.
