look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: A little bit hazy amber pour. Decent slightly offwhite head. Lacing and retention is minimal but present.
S: Very subtle. Flowery with a bit of citrus. There is a sweet caramel element from the malt.
T: Definitely an EPA. Hops are a bit citrusy and maybe a little earthy? But like the smell, very mild. Very little bitterness The sweet caramel malt is everywhere as well.
M: Super super smooth. As mentioned, just a tiny bit of bitterness from the hops. Otherwise it's silky and flavorful. Just a tiny bit of graininess in the aftertaste.
O: I thought this was a great example of an EPA so I gave it extra points. It's not very strong in any area, it focuses more on the overall package and the drinkability I think. This is a great session beer for sure, nothing too strong or overpowering about any aspect. Just an easy drinking pale ale.
