look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Best before 12/3/13.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy orange-khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, and some subdued citrus zest hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus and brown sugar flavors on the finish. A slight metallic flavor comes out as the beer warms up as well. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but not very well put together in my opinion.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pretty deep copper color with minimal head. A bit of caramel in the aroma, not a whole lot going on here. Flavors of vanilla and malt, slight diacetyl, not a huge hop presence. Medium carbonation and a bit sticky. A little sweeter than expected, but quite drinkable.

2.9/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a mason jar.

Appearance: A deep orange/Amber color. Minimal head.

Smell: Not great... biscuit?

Taste: Definitely made up for the aroma. I get full flavors of honey and grapes, earthy, mild orange peel/citrus zest and some jasmine. Medium malt and light hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a very nice crisp finish. The finish is the best part for me. Sweet with a very small bit of bitterness at the very end.

Overall: I like this beer. Its not the best but its still pretty darn good. I tend to shy away from pale ales but I think this one has a wonderful fruity flavor profile. Will drink again.
