look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance - Pours a bright, clear amber with an off-white, 2-finger head. Great retention. Strong lacing coats the glass.
Smell - Spicy, with citrus hop predominately, and a bit of sweet malt in the background.
Taste - A great balance of citrus hop and light, sweet caramel malt hit before a bit of bread character creeps in midway through. Peppery spice bites at the palate near the finish, and melds with the citrus to create an awesome uppercut to the taste buds, with the flavor lingering deep into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, and the carbonation adds a nice bite toward the finish. Goes down smooth.
Overall - This one comes through with great balance, and passes with flying colors. Unique. Maybe my favorite year-round pale ale on the market today.

12 oz bottle poured into a glass.
Appearance: Pours a neat golden color with a pillowy white head that sticks around a good while. Carbonation and lacing both heavy.
Aroma: Smells of pine, grapefruit, lemon, citrus, grassiness and some toast.
Taste: There's something off about this. The grapefruit in the nose is really, really dominant. It's very bitter for an American pale ale. It's OK but I don't love it.
Mouthfeel: It's pleasant on the palate; body is just right for this style. The bitter grapefruit taste makes it less enjoyable, though.
Overall: I know this stuff is beloved but I'm kind of lukewarm on it. It's very average. The dominant flavors don't appeal to me, which is kind of a deal-breaker.
