look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A:Clear slightly dark amber color with a off-white head that shows a little lace.
S:Wonderful bitter hop aroma dominates most of the nose. There is a little bit of malt sweetness in the background.
T:A lot less bitter than the smell lets on. The bitterness is on the lower level of a pale ale. There there a little bit of rough flavor at the end that might be from the rye, or maybe a rough bitter taste. There is somewhat of a citrus flavor from the hops and also a flavor of English hops, too. The malt flavor is present at a low level, but the things that I do pick out are biscuity and toasty.
MF: Medium body.
D:Very easy to drink. I really enjoyed this beer, but the one thing I didn't like that much was the little bit of harshness that was at the back of the palate. But other than that they did a great job.

On tap, beautiful copper clear color, thin head faded fast, good lacing though. Carbonation just right
Peachy aroma, fruity esters with hops present seemed just right for a local pale ale
Nice mild to medium hop taste. Nothing overwhelming, very balanced
Dry hoppy attack. Nice finish. Easy to drink
Overall I liked it, and I am not a hophead
Serving type: on-tap

3.76/5 rDev -1.1%

Pours copper orange with some creamy head and good lacing.
Smells sweet, soapy and floral with some tropical fruit coming through.
Tropical fruit, peach and citrus up front, with some rye spice following close behind. Pretty full body for the style and more sweetness than is typical in an APA. This is my last bottle of the sixer and I've also noted some bitter, metallic off-notes at times. Sort of coppery. But for the most part it's just pleasantly juicy and hoppy, although a bit big in body to have more than one or two of.
