On tap. Pours a slightly cloudy, dark orange color. Thin head. Smell is modest and balanced. Caramel, pine and citrus. Very basic and standard. A generic American Pale Ale. The flavor is also the same. I've had this beer before but from different breweries several times. Pine, grass, citrus, caramel, and standard sweetness. Finishes with more bitterness that I perhaps would have asked for. It's got some body to it as well. Not a bad Pale Ale but it doesn't have much else to really gush over. Crazy to think of how different the new-school Pale Ales are around my areas in comparison to is brew that has been around for a dozen years.

Really not my type of beer, but pretty good. It's kind of like Boston lager but more lighter and crisp

Pours moderate orange in color with just a pencil of head. Slightly cloudy. Nose is yeasty with a bit of citrus lurking. Flavor is extremely balanced with sweet citrus and malt apparent first on the palate and slightly earthly hoppy bitterness on the back. Interesting in that it kind of harkens back to a pre huge citrus west coast IPA era. Don't get me wrong, the citrus is here, it is just not as in-your-face as you typically see these days. Very nice. Clean and refreshing finish.

Nice gold color, white head. Hints of honey, fresh grass, pretty mild actually. Great body, clean and crisp finish, malt, bright orange.
