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

64 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange body. Very cloudy. Medium white head. Leggy as I swirl it. Some lacing clings and drips down the sides. Fragmented surface foam.

Smell - Lots of orange hops. Hints of lemon and grassiness. Gives it a bit of a Nelson hop aroma. Sweet and doughy.

Taste - The hops are dynamic. Immediate orange citrus. Moves toward a lemon flavor. Grassy transitions between the flavors. The finish is mango and tropical. Sweet pale malts throughout. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel - It's heavy for a pale ale. Maybe overly sweet. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Excellent hop profile. Atypical malt profile for a pale ale, but very drinkable nonetheless.
