3.35/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - nice clear copper color with a finger of thick off white head that retains very well and laces somewhat

S - fruity and floral hops, fresh and clean... Very pleasant... Slight bready Munich malt notes as well

T - very bitter... and not in a good way that a pale/ipa should... Almost completely overpowering. Would like a cleaner hop presence here as it wipes out most of the other flavors. If you can get through it, there are strong fruity hop flavors (grapefruit particularly) and some bready malt.

M - over carbonated... While this helps with head retention, burns the tongue... Lingering astringency also not appealing

O - there is potential here for an awesome pale ale... Tone down on the early addition hops and back off the carbonation

3.63/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours out to a generous white head that laces well and a deep orange-golden hazy color. Aroma is piney, spicy hops and whiffs of grass, dill and grains. Flavor is hop forward with pine, spice, grass and a solid malt backdrop. Mouthfeel is light, slick yet weirdly a bit astringent. Overall a solid choice, enjoyable but a bit rough and one-dimensional in some spots.

The OPA is decent...I'm not sure I got a fresh bottle or not. It was off the Binny's singles shelf. The beer seemed as thou it was going to be an over primed bottle....but I was able to pour it without much flare up. The beer poured a slightly hazy gold with decent white head that is leaving a lace. The smell is more malty than hoppy. The taste is a okay....I believe this is call a pale ale because of color....not so much as for hops used. The mouthfeel was medium in body with big carbonation. Overall its a good beer. I'd like to try it again just to see if the bottle I had was extra primed.
