3.38/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium snifter. The pour is clear gold with a slight haze and very little carbonation. The nose has hints of toast, butter, and apples.

The beer has a light body and medium-firm mouthfeel. There's a nice caramel-like malt presence, like toast and marmalade, that gives way to slightly dry, apricot-like finish.

Overall, not a bad beer, but not really extraordinary either (regardless of the name). I tend to like a bit more of a hop presence in a pale ale. Perhaps my bottle was a bit old.

4.49/5  rDev +26.8%
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
