3.6/5 rDev +1.4%
Appearance: Cloudy and golden with a two finger white head with decent retention, leaving behind a layer of residual foam. Fairly good lacing.
Smell: Piney hops with some resin, grapefruit, some herbal notes and perhaps a little bit of spiciness.
Taste: Similar to nose, pine and grapefruit make up the bulk of the flavor profile, with some herbal and malt notes in the background.
Mouthfeel: Wet with middling carbonation. Highly drinkable and moderately refreshing.
Overall: A very serviceable pale ale that is certainly on the hoppier side of the spectrum. That being said, this is far from the best I've had.

A - Lighter brown, but like you'd expect from a pale ale.
S - Smells like citrus and flowers and something i couldn't place.
T - It tastes like goji fruit! almost exactly and similar to goji tea. It's an Asian fruit.
M - Slippery.
O - I like Goji fruit and that's why this is a good pale ale to me. It's like a fruit beer in that way, but also a good pale ale.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a transparent orange with some floaties in it. Smells like flowery and piney hops, very nice. Tastes of light grain and flowery hops, but not overly bitter. Beer goes down really smooth and is highly drinkable for its light body. Overall, an above average beer.
