2.63/5 rDev -38.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2
Appearance: Light amber-copper color. Clear body, filtered, average carbonation. Inch head of white retains better than average.
Smell: Some piney hops, some floral qualities, but not in the skillfully dry-hopped sense of delicacy. This doesn't have a real strong nose. Some sweet carmelized sugar scents from the malts. Oranges.
Taste: Some light citrus notes, orange and piney hop flavors. Not a real substantial malt base, some dry biscuit and carmel flavors. Not very different than the masses of pale ales out there. This tries to breach the PA - IPA boundary, but doesn't really commit to either. Only the slightest bitterness in the finish. I can't reccommend this beer because it doesn't have any direction.
Mouthfeel: Medium to low carbonation. The body is light and easy to quaff, but doesn't really offer any substance.
Drinkability: Not difficult to drink, but not interesting enough to make me want another. Just because this brewery makes some real gems, doesn't mean that everything it makes is good, or even competent.
Serving type: bottle
