3.75/5 rDev -5.5%
A: medium-to-deep golden body, hazy and dull; two fingers of fluffy head showed good retention and left some lace trails behind
S: grains and herbal notes atop a mildly fruity undercurrent - suggestions of citrus and pale dried fruits
T: I got a lotta grains, like a field ripe for harvest; fruit and citric and yeasty flavors were subtle - overall impression was dry grains and mild yeasts, slight fruitiness and very mild bitterness
M: light and crisp, medium-thin body, ample carbonation, slight drying on the finish
O: a decent pale ale, which is not a style I drink too much of - so take my notes with a grain of salt - would probably be very session-able if not for the high price. Worth a try and buy, and probably great for fans of the APA, but slightly underwhelming if that's not a go-to style for you.

4.26/5 rDev +7.3%
Poured from a bottle into a glass. Moderate lacing, foam around the edges, some mapping of bubbles on top. Hazy.
Smell- fresh, fruity, very pleasant. Like the smell of the first few days of spring. Do I smell carmel too, or am I nuts?
Taste- Immediately fruity- grapefruit and orange peel with a moderate after taste of wheat. Very bright and uplifting taste. This would be a grade A beer to drink after doing yard work on a hot day. I don't think my taste buds are crazy, but I feel like there is some sort of vegetable related or plant like aftertaste?
Mouthfeel- very crisp and well carbonated.
Overall- Very surprised by how tasty this beer is. I haven't found myself motivated enough from many beers to type a review, but this one definitely stands out. Pleasantly fruity, but not super fruity or sweet. A perfect balance of different flavors and textures.
