look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter.

Aroma: impressive citrus, oranges, slight mango, pineapple

Taste: bitterness up front, citrus undertones that lingers well

Overall: 4.5/5 - fantastic pale ale that actually lives up to the hype. Wish this was available to me regularly.. Cheers!
