3.68/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance- Pours a thick white head. Even a gentle pour displaces a large foam top. Pale orange in color, fairly transparent.
Smell- Somewhat complex. The most notable are citrus tones. Hints of grapefruit and a minor sweet note are subtly noted.
Taste- Equal to the smell. More bitter then anything. Not overwhelming bitterness. The expected citrus flavor is noted. Flavor is abundant and quickly disappears and leaves a barely noticeable hop flavor in the mouth afterwards leaving a somewhat stale tinge in .
Mouthfeel- Light on the tongue. Slight carbonation.
Overall- Enjoyable beer to drink. Not overly complex. Consuming two or three in one sitting would be the limit for me. The flavor is to basic to really have any more if other beers are available.

4.04/5 rDev +7.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a nice autumnal orange mixed with caramel brown…way too much off white head formed with the lightest of pours (see photo above)...this is the last of a six pack I picked up and all of them have done this...it’s thick, with big and little bubbles…tons of big bubble lacing around the glass…fairly transparent, there’s tons of bubble action throughout…a well carbonated brew…when it finally simmers down, it has a nice, drinkable appearance…(3.89/5)
Smell: Earthiness, yeast, floral, piney, grapefruit, orange, sweet caramel malts, honey candy and toffee…there is a light airiness; a fresh, out-of-the-shower aroma going on here…a touch of alcohol heat way in the back…it’s a lovely smelling brew…(4.25/5)
Taste: Yum! Sweet, caramel malts blending nicely with piney/resin and citrus hops flavors…way more yeast flavor than typically found in these types of pale ales…a very fresh feel and taste to it…not overly complicated, it really comes in as it finishes…there’s a biscuity, citrus bitterness in the after taste…(4/5)
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, tons of carbonation…it fluffs up all over my palate leaving piney/citrus resin all over my tongue…for all the fluff and body, it’s not overly chewy, still has a nice, drinkable body…(4/5)
Overall: This is a pretty good beer…the flavor isn’t overly unique, as I’ve really been hitting the caramel malts mixed with citrus hops American Pale Ale variety pretty hard lately, so it’s difficult for a brew like this to stand out...what does separate this beer from others is the yeast they use…it’s very evident in the aroma and flavor making it borderline Belgian in life and effervescence (though the over zealous carbonation makes me burpy!)…things are nicely balanced, it’s very drinkable and at 6.0% ABV, I could have a couple over the course of a night and still be able to hold my head up… (4/5)
