4.56/5  rDev +19.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I don't regard B/A scores as absolute truth, but when I see a new beer that I want to try and 500 people have rated it in the high 70s to low 80s, it factors into my decision. That being said, I feel that the current score of 85 for this beer is a little misleading. Don't mistake this beer for just a decent pale ale. I think time will prove this beer is worthy of a 90-92 rating.

Appearance--The darker hue to this pale ale increases its crowd pleasing ability. It's not just for hop seakers.

Smell--positives here, but not the gusto behind this beer. You get an expected balance of hops with some true to appearance malt.

Taste--The taste is everything you hope the name suggests. Sure, if you want to be blown away by hops, the "Hop, Drop 'n Roll" is there waiting for you. Sessionability is the name of the game here. You get enough hops, then the relief of a full flavored and well rounded beer.

Mouthfeel--Sessionability here as well, but not overly thin.

Overall--I could try to describe exactly what hops and malt tastes like, but in all honesty, you need not tax yourself with the chore of decoding nuance in this brew. It is the sum of all its parts that entices subsequent sips. The roundedness of this beer makes the second one just as tasty as the first.
