3.81/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

AP: 1" fluffy foamy white head made up of rather large bubbles from viewing the side of the glass. Larger than I've seen on other beers anyway. Rich golden colour with some orange hues. Very little lacing when the glass is tilted as the head seems to retain itself well and is now down to 1/4".
AR: Lemon, orange, yeast, grass, straw/hay, cereal grains with some pineapple trying to hide from you. Possibly some mango as well. Interesting.
T: More like a biscuit malt taste with some bready notes than what's in the nose. The lemon and orange are still there, but in a softer more mellow way. Hops on the end are floral and herbal. The soft bitterness of the hops lingers on the palate.
M: Despite the large bubbles in the head, it wasn't too carbonated, just about right. The finish is moist not drying. Not creamy, but not too light in body either.
OV: A rather refreshing Pale Ale for those who enjoy a little hop bite. Some nice flavours, but nothing extraordinary. A pretty solid brew that is sessionable and can be paired with moderate to lighter fare.

Poured into a nonic a clear lighter dull golden with a fluffy,sticky one finger white crown atop,the bottle says to decant into a glass,I saw no need.Aromas of grassy/herbal hops over top of nutty malt,not real big but pleasant nose wise.Herbal notes along with a tinge of red onion on the palate,a little tea and mint is noticable,a firm lightly sweet nutty biscuit base holds up to the hops.This a nice APA not gigantic hops but a minty herbal approach that makes it really drinkable,the maltiness is big enough for non hopheads to like this beer as well.Nice job here.
