look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Great look for a pale ale. Hazy golden color. Head perfect size and lasted a long time.
Smells very light. Can pick up a biscuit smell and a bit of citrus.
Good taste. Very biscuity taste. Very light and clean, with a small hint of citrus at the end.
Good thickness for an APA.
Good brew. Interesting taste. Could drink a good amount of these, but I would not say its definitely a session beer.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a. Light yellow and cloudy/hazy. Not much body, watery. 1 finger head that lasts in a thin layer atop the beer.

s. Smells like a lager - malty, slight citrus/acid.

t. Tastes like a standard lager or ale, but very easy to drink and very smooth. Hops are not bitter or overpowering, as I expected.

m. Very nice carbonation and mouth feel.

o. Overall this seems like a great call on a summer day. Light, great taste,and smooth.

3.41/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dirty blonde; hazy. Like that girl you once knew. You know the one.

Smell: Malty; dirty corn husks. Shuck it.

Taste: Not a forward malt. This one smacks the back of the palate. And, via the power of suggestion, it has a metallic "steel" quality to it.

Mouthfeel: Thin and clean to start, but it leaves you with something to think about.

Overall: A good beer. It's drinkable ("quaffable" in the douche vernacular). In other words, a descent session ale. It's good for a reliable romp, but not an earth shattering meet the parents type of beer. Keep it in on speed dial if nothing else hits.

Serving type: growler
