Reviewed based on tasting notes from a blind pale ale tasting.

12 oz. bottle inside a paper bag poured into a plastic tasting cup.

A- clear amber.

S- Some lemon in the nose.

T- Very nice balance between malts and hops.

M- Crisp, bitter finish.

O- Very clean, easy drinking, but not very interesting. Spot on for the style, but just a little lifeless in the intangible sense.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Golden orange color, lacy white head.
Aroma: Hoppy citrus aroma.
Flavor: Lightly hoppy with a citrus flavor up front, finishing somewhat spicy. It’s a full bodied beer with a smooth carbonation.
Overall: This is not a very hoppy pale ale. The flavor is that of citrus zest, which leaves the beer with the bitter taste of orange/lemon peels. Very smooth on the tongue, bitter citrus taste at the end.
