3.73/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Attractive gold color, with an oddly relentless foamy head. Had to pour part of it, wait a couple minutes, and pour the rest.

Aroma is slightly soapy, but with a nice herbal lemony crisp hop zing.

Rather mild body, crisp lemony hop flavor with a noticeable malt background. That slight soapy/chemically character in the aroma does come out a little bit, unfortunately, but still not too bad.

Very bubbly, goes down pretty easy. I'd disagree with the word 'extraordinary,' but it's decent. Not really anything I'd seek out though. There are much better pale ales.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Wow this surprised me. A - rich golden color. S - hoppy, I'm still undecided about IPA's so I'm hesitant. T - smooth malt flavor with hints of hop notes. Bites at the end but pleasurable. M - Thick but goes down fast. O - 3 hops instead of 2 with the farmers tan, yet a touch more subtle. Makes up for it with a dry end, it surprised me how good it tasted.

One of my new favorite IPA's. If you've had a farmers tan by southern tier it's similar. Not to hoppy of an IPA and it goes down very easy. I'm just getting into IPA's and this is a good one. Smooth taste and mouthfeel. Will be buying this again. New fan
