look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 11/21/2013

Appearance: Clean transparent body. Bold golden color. Head of about two and half fingers on the pour which settled around a finger. Highly above average active carbonation while drinking.

Smell: Juicy tropical fruits which a dry malt body of straw and light caramel. Some slight funkiness going on here in a non-offensive way. Easy fruit hop tones win out in the end.

Taste: Front a straw and prairie grass. Yeasty funkiness warms up briefly on the body then solid fruits pop up toward the back end and ride this brew out. Hop tones dry out the palate leaving flavors of english yeast and straw behind.

Mouthfeel: Balanced front leads to a sweet body which gradually dries out. Crisp carbonation makes this a refreshing brew as well.

Overall: This brew comes out as an incredibly easy drinking english pale. Not as flavorful or complex as their "A Little Crazy" but I wouldn't hesitate to drink this again. I got this in a bomber but a better format would be in a six pack in my opinion.

22 oz.

Pours a mostly clear medium gold, white sudsy lacing for a head.

Smells of grassy malts, light citrus, and mild piney hops.

Light grassy malt flavor over light citrus with some honey.

Full body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

This is a really enjoyable and pleasant ale with a nice balance of flavor and a good aroma. Very easy to drink and definitely worth trying.
