4.03/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear light gold with a bubbly off-white head. Some lacing.

Smell is grassy hops, sweet pine, and fruit mixed with a light caramel, rye malt. Some tea-like, herbal qualities.

Upfront taste is bitter grassy hops. Rye, bready malt middle with a little caramel/toffee sweetness. Hoppy bitter finish--grassy and citrusy. Some caramel and pine sweetness remains through the finish.

Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.

Very drinkable pale ale. Light, but packed full of flavor. Rye adds some uniqueness to the malt profile. Just as good as I remember it from when I first started drinking craft beer.

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

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

3.76/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
