look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the 12 oz bottle into a perfect pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish orange, almost brown. Really rusty, but clear throughout. Super dark for a pale ale (even though i know pale doesn't necessarily refer to the overall color). Head is 2 fingers thick, off white, and sticks around for a while.

S: Lots of hops, as advertised, though more subtle than expected. Fruity hops and some classic floral and grapefruit up front. There is a slight malt tying everything together to provide some balance.

T: Very hoppy and messy, but in a good way. The hops unfold like ppeling layers off an onion, at first floral, then very in your face citrus peel and sour or unripe fruit. There is a slight bready malt in the background, then covered up by grapefruit and more floral. Huge hop profile but not overwhelming. The tastes are really hard to pick out individually, and it ends up just being a hoppy character on your palate that is indeed very spring.

Overall, this beer is solid, not quite an IPA but still having a nice hop profile. Could be a bit fresher. Not quite balanced enough and, as I said before seems a bit messy and directionless. Almost went for too much here, but not bad. Very drinkable and good for everyday drinking or with friends. An alright seasonal.
