A - Pours a nice amber with a thin white head. Good amount of lacing.

S - Lots of citrus - orange, pineapple, and mango. Some malty sweetness is also present.

T - This is nice. Lots of citrus in the front followed by sweet malts and a nice bitter hops. Extremely well balanced.

M - Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Very smooth and easy drinking.

O - One of the best pale ale's I've ever had. Very well balanced and highly recommended.

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!
