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

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Faint wisps on the surface.

Smell - Orange hops, A bit of an herbal character. Light doughy malts and a hint of grain.

Taste - A little less exciting, but still nice. Slightly nondescript orange citrus hops. The herbal notes are lost. Doughy malts make a brief appearance, but the finish is grainier.

Mouthfeel - Light and drinkable. Medium carbonation and low bitterness.

Overall - Well made pale ale. Better made than most, but isn't earth-shattering.

A-nice orange amber color with a nice off-white head and good lacing

S-cracker malt, pine, citrus, light orange, floral

T-bready malt, grapefruit, orange, pine, floral, little grassy, moderate bitter finish

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp

O-decent pale ale, but the hops aren't well-balanced, would have been interested in trying the individual ones to see if any were particularly compelling
