I had this beer on-tap in my OBF pint glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.
Appearance: good color; a nice medium orange hue with a light effervescence and a tiny bit of haze. There's a thin layer of ivory foam as well.
Smell: a nice, standard pale ale aroma; heavy, resiny hops with some citrusy character. A little light in intensity, but even with that it's a little rough around the edges.
Taste: the flavor is much less raspy than the aroma. Butterness is a little rough at the end, but is at a low level so it works. Moderate hop character; orangey and grapefruity. It's not a sweet pale ale, more of a resiny, hoppy one. I like it.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation yielding a nice creaminess. Not bad.
Overall: a basic but functional pale ale; I could drink a fair amount of this.
Serving type: on-tap

4/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: pours an orange color with a 2" fluffy head that slowly fell. Thick lace painted the glass during the session.
Smell: oranges and a soft bitterness were the dominant aromas.
Taste: Caramel, orange, a bit of grass / earthiness, and a nice floral bitterness. Nicely balanced flavor profile.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and mildly dry late.
Overall: this beer was very easy to enjoy and tasted great as it seemed to be a super fresh keg. This can be a sessionable beer and can be enjoed with a variety of foods.
Serving type: on-tap
