3.43/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a orangish yellow color with a thin white head.

The smell is pretty good, floral and fruit fragrances, and the hops really come out, nothing overwhelms anything else, fairly balanced smells.

The taste of this beer is good, very crisp. The hops are very present, as well as some small fruit flavor, though there seemed to be a somewhat corn like taste to this. The hops do a nice job of finishing off each sip.

Overall I would say this is a pretty good ale, not great but good, its also somewhat different from most of the california pales ive had, but overall it is something I would likely drink again.
