4.21/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger white head with good retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A fruity, earthy, and floral hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus fruit and grass. Upfront citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, melon, pineapple, mango, and apricot. Also some fruit hints of apple and grapes. Floral and earthy hops with hints of grass and pine. Solid malt presence with hints of biscuit, grains, caramel, and yeast. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like the smell, a fruity, floral, and earthy hop driven taste with good notes of citrus fruit and grass. Citrus hops with some upfront notes of grapefruit, orange, mango, lemon, melon, apricot, and pineapple. Subtle fruit notes of apple, grape, and pear. Good presence of floral and earthy hops with notes of damp grass and pine. Backing presence of sweet malt with notes of caramel, grains, biscuit, and yeast. A pretty solid Pale Ale taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, crisp, and pretty smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A very solid take on an American Pale Ale. Good mix of citrus and earthy hop flavors.

4.18/5  rDev +8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Dark gold almost amber color and nearly clear. Dome like head that lasts. Surprisingly little lace on the glass.

There's a pleasant sweet stone fruit presence to this beer. Apricot? Peach? It's not too strong. I also detect a bit of floral hop, like irises. It works.

Strong grapefruit (almost like sucking a hop pellet) flavor right up front. It's strongest in the swallow which creates a long bitter aftertaste. Rich bodied with a highly elevated carbonation level.

Serving type: on-tap

3.76/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass, bottle isn't for some reason. Pours a light yellow orange with a 2 inch white head that leaves behind some nice lace.

Smell is biscuit, caramel, lemon, pine, papaya, and grapefruit.

Taste follows the nose, a little more bitter than the nose would have you aspect, but some biscuity malt and carmel balances the bitterness.

Body is less than medium, plenty of life, a touch dry, and easy drinking.

Overall this is solid, not worth the $9, but good.
