look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

I purchased this bottle at Shady Mcgrady's enjoyed chilled in a goblet.

The color is copper with good clarity and thick white head with average bead and copious lace, carbonation is visible and rises rapidly to the 2 fingers plus cap. The smell is a mix of hop aromas which are slightly pine and citrus with a subtle floral element and light toasted grain aroma. The feel is good with moderate bitterness and medium carbonation with slight sweetness and hint of spice with a mild alcohol element in the semi-dry finish.

The taste is very good with a modest amount of malt supporting a pretty hop forward flavor with slight spice and pine and gentle tangy zesty citrus which makes for a mostly balanced taste in general with some mild sweetness as it finishes. There is a mild alcohol note in the taste which adds to the slight bite of bitter hops which are almost grapefruit-like. Overall I think this is decent for what it is -a stronger west coast style pale -practically an IPA, but a nice malt balance explains the pale label IMO.
