4.97/5 rDev +44.5%
Poured from bottle to pint glass
A-Pours a vibrant gold/dark yellow with a white head that doesn't lace as much as I would like it to. The look of this beer just makes me want to drink it.
S-Lots of citrus/fruity aromas hit you first. A smooth and complex malty smell is a little lighter. Not to sure of all the grains in this, but the smell makes me want to take a drink.
T/M-Excellent! A mix of pale malt and citrus fruit flavors tickles my tongue. As the beer finishes, the hops take over with a nice pine flavor that gives the beer a great pale finish. The body is just perfect and the carbonation is spot on.
This is one of the better beers I have ever had. The only complaint I have, and this is being picky, is the head doesn't lace as much as I would like it. This beer looks, smells, and tastes good. Pick it up, you won't be disappointed.

4.28/5 rDev +24.4%
Aroma - Nice and hoppy, there's a nice floral almost berry like scent off the top.
Mouthfeel - Some slight body, with a nice level of carbonation. A bit less than most pale ales. Just enough to seem refreshing.
Appearance - Copperish, straw color. Poured to slight head, quickly dissipated.
Taste - Nice initial hit of somewhat berrylike sweetness, when hits the back of mouth get the bitterness from the hops. Just enough to drive home the flavor, I like this for a pale ale. Hoppy but not overpowering.
Drinkability - Rather, I could get a number of these down and have a couple of times. One of my favorite pale ales undoubtedly.
Overall - I think this is a rather drinkable pale ale with enough hoppiness to entice. I really like it...
