3.64/5 rDev +7.1%
Pours a dark golden color, not quite amber, with a white head which recedes to a thin cap after one minute. Good lacing.
I get some malty biscuit notes with a balancing suggestion on hops
Starts out with some citrus fruits, like, pine and some mild grapefruit which is nicely balanced until the finish when it eventually dries out.
Mouthfeel is appropriate per style, low-med carbonation. Lingering hop oil finish.
Overall, not a bad pale. I would like to see far more hops on the nose. Bring on the late additions!

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a deep and clear golden orange with lots of rising bubbles. Solid three finger white head with good retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A good scent of floral hops upfront along with some citrus hops. Hints of grapefruit, oranges, and lemon zest. Solid malt backing with hints of caramel and biscuit. Some wheat grains. Also some grassy hops in the mix. Pretty hop forward for a regular pale ale. Smells closer to a IPA.
Taste: A nice burst of citrus flavor upfront. Notes of citrus orange, grapefruit and lemon. Bready malts with notes of biscuit, cracker, and caramel. Also some floral and grassy hops. The citrus hop flavor is the most noticeable here. This is a very hop forward ale but the bitterness is pretty low. Taste is like a English ESB.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, juicy, and very smooth. Finishes fairly dry.
Overall: A very good ale here. Very hop forward but light with the bitterness. A good lighter hop driven option.

Picked up a bomber for $7 at Princeton Liquors. Overall, a very tasty beer, but still overpriced. I paired it with a spicy catfish dinner and the pale ale made a great complement. The big, clean hops character held a juicy hops perfume with a tangerine and bitter rind finish. A little toasty barley snuck into the flavor and I also caught the occasional notes of apricots and tropical fruit. Maybe it's more reasonably priced on draft, I certainly wouldn't mind drinking more.

Poured into rocks glasses for sharing.
Dark gold hazy, lvery little head or lacing,
Aroma is mild malt with some spicy hop scents.
Mouthfeel is fairly crisp, medium-light.
A nice balance of hoppy bitterness, not extremely complex, but quite drinkable, good effort.

Bizarro color. It is clear with a golden-gray color that I have never seen in a beer before. Just over one finger of head forms and has good retention before settling to a thick cap. Just a little lacing is left down the glass.
Pleasant aroma of floral and citrus hops with a bready malt base. Smells like a nice APA.
Almost there with the flavor. The hops are at a nice bitterness and flavor level, however the malt is lacking and this beer does not have much depth beyond the hops. Has a citrus and floral flavor. A semi-sweet flavor.
Even at 5.2% this beer feels a little thin. I enjoyed the carbonation. Nice texture for a light bodied beer.
A decent APA but I just can't get past the color. Has a couple of other things going against such as price and bottle format. Would try it again on-tap.
