look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles and some floating sediment. About two fingers of off white head with decent retention.

Smell: A juicy and earthy balanced aroma with hints of citrus, grass, and caramel. Citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, and pineapple. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass. Solid malt balance with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A solid APA aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely juicy and grassy pale ale taste with notes of citrus fruit, grass, and sweet malt. Citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, and lemon. Solid notes of grassy and floral hops. Good backing malt presence with notes of caramel, cracker, grains, and yeast. A pretty nice balanced taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty solid take on an American Pale Ale. Good juicy hop presence with a good malt balance.

I had this on-tap at the brewery. Served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Beer pours a clear amber color with a half finger of off white head. The head fades to a layer on top of the pour and leaves some mild lacing.

Smell: The smell of this one is very mild. A slight hop note with a touch of fruity sweetness. Would have liked a bit more, but it's pleasant.

Taste: Hoppy up front with come citrus peel like bitterness. The grain shows up in the background. The bready malt also has some fruity notes. The finish is bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with aggressive carbonation and a finish that isn't dry enough.

Overall: There is a very nice balance to this one. I would have liked a drier finish, but I'd still be happy to have another.
