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

A: poured into a nonic pint glass to a slightly hazed light orange with a finger of soapy white head that has decent retention and lacing
S: smells of citrus and pine with a little sweetness
T: taste is light maltyness that is slowly replaced with a piney and floral hop character that's a little citrusy. swallow is more maltyness with a little piney and citric hop
M: fairly light on the mouth with slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: Pretty solid and a well crafted offering. Not as good as some but better than most.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a nice fluffy white head that fades to a nice lace.

S: Lots of spice, pine and resin, some caramel sweetness, maybe a hint of citrus. More herbal and floral in the aroma than citrusy.

T: Flavor is good with citrus notes, pine, and a bit of spice. Malt provides a good balance with just a touch of sweetness to counter the hops.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and mild bitterness. Easy drinking and smooth.

O: A real solid pale ale here from Great Raft, my first beer from these guys. Thanks again for the can Evan!

Pours to a pretty head and copper color. Hoppy aroma with spice, pine, citrus, mint and dill. Some caramel and fruit esters in the nose. Flavor is clean and light with a Belgian spiciness in there to mix it up with the malts and American hops. Good balance. Crisp finish. Mouthfeel is thin and CO2 is appropriate. Nothing really wrong with it--sure captures the zeitgeist of today's American craft beer tastes (Belgian character... Check. Piney west coast hops... Check.). Personally, it does not excite me much and does not stand out.
