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

Amber color with a thin head with low retention.
Aroma of pale malt with a bit of herbal hops.
Refreshing flavor with floral, herbal and citrus hops, notes of oranges, tea bags, spices and American yeast. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with medium carbonation.
A malty and yeasty APA, but still crisp hopped with a huge drinkability

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a murky dark yellow, not much of a head. Aroma is light wheat. Flavor is dominated by wheat with hints of lemon. There is medium carbonation, but with very little hops or bitterness. I find this to be a pretty solid pale ale despite the lack of complexity.
