4.31/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Deep gold to amber with orange hues. Nice foamy white head that lasts and leaves some gnarly lacing behind. [5]

Smell: Grapefruit, pine, and oranges. Definitely hop-dominated [4]

Taste: Strong, cohesive blend of citrus and pine (orange and grapefruit predominant). A pleasant bready sweetness lingers in the background. Some stronger roast bread flavors (biscuit and toast) are woven between the hop bitterness and the sweet malt. [4.5]

Feel: Somewhat creamy, but there is acidity and bitterness/resin present. Finishes dry, however with a lingering bitterness [3.5]

Overall: A wonderful pale ale. It feels a bit too "heavy" and resinous to drink a lot of it, but definitely has great presentation and flavor. [4.5]

Delish, flavor full, right at my hop threshold!

A very hoppy Pale Ale that is -- in my opinion -- much better on tap than in the bottle. In the bottle the aroma becomes EXTREMELY hoppy -- overpowering, and too much, in my opinion. However, on tap it's much more well-balanced and becomes a much nicer drinking experience.
