12oz bottle from brew3crew, not sure on the age. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.
A: Dark orange bordering on copper, with lots of carbonation and some good off-white head lacing.
S: Ok smell, hop forward with some hints of fruit and floral notes. Grain and malt underneath, not too sweet but its there.
T: Again, not loving it but its above average, especially on the hop side. The floral hops are up front with some juicy fruitiness, and there is some bitterness on the front as well but overall it mixes well and the malt backbone mellows it out.
MF: Average mf but good carbonation. Besides that, its light and more wet than dry on the finish.
O: Pretty good pale ale, but I'm underwhelmed (though I had high expectations). Not something I'd search out again but nice to try once. Hope my bottle was fresh and an accurate representation of this beer.
