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.

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.
