look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Dense sunny d orange ( yes i totally disregarded the bottles advice on decanting) with a big billowy 2 figner plus head that was very well lasting (up to five minutes with little signs of decay). Small traces of yeasty goodiness, but not as much as expected with spongy streaks of lace adoring the vessel.

S: Fresh citrus and oranges first arrive on the nose with a soft backing of pine. Love the fresh, juicy nature of the aroma, not everything has to be dry hopped and bitter. Sure signs of late kettle hops with some small fresh wet grass hints.

T: The flavor was crisp, bright in nature, filled with citrusy-orange and grapefruit hopping. Nice graininess and crisp pale nature from the pale malts with a very even toned hopping trasistion. Smooth, bready and gentle piney fade of dryness leaves off the tongue.

M: Crisp mouthful, love a pale that keeps it pale and crisp, fresh and bright feel, medium bodied with a slight creamy nature. Gentle lingering hops adds a nice touch on the fade without being obnoxious.

O: Nice drinkability, feels fresh and young and very crisp. The Hops are fresh upfront wtih a gentle dryness on the close. Very good overall no hesitation on repurchase. The way a good pale should drink.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Semi clear orange, some carbonation, one finger head, doesn't really seem to last.

S-Has a nice malt presence, then lemon, citrus, wheat and nice deal of hops.

T-Starts with malt then finishes with a good deal of hops. Lemon and citrus notes, mild bitterness and orange.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated and rather crisp.

O-A well made easy drinking APA. Southern Tier made another quality brew.

3.89/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle. Pours straw yellow with a pillowy white foam that leaves a sheet of lace down the mug. Perfect clarity.

Aroma of piney hops, very herbal. Resinous, oily hops in the nose.
In the taste, mildly bitter and has some grapefruit or perhaps orange skin pulp flavors. Pale malts giving the necessary sweetness and depth to the beer.

Light bodied, well carbonated feel. Finishes a bit slickly and oily with a small hop bite.

Overall, a very nice pale.
