3.33/5 rDev -5.9%
A - Rusty-orange with a beige head. Long lasting lacing.
S - Very shy nose with hints of tropical fruits and orange. Slight toast aroma as well. The nose was very nice just wish it was more forward.
T- Taste was quite similar to the nose, tropical fruit and toast.
M - Medium/Light body with a very clean finish
O - I was expecting more from this beer and in many ways somewhat disappointed. While it was very drinkable, I don't think I'll be buying any more.

3.24/5 rDev -8.5%
Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy golden orange with an off-white, 2 finger head. Fair retention, leading to a broken layer of surface suds. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass with nice stick.
Smell - Nice bouquet of orange and light tropical notes backed by a healthy amount of caramel and butter toffee notes. I could stand to smell this all day.
Taste - Does not follow the nose. At All. Stale breadiness and distant citrus hop notes. Mostly watery. Finishes with nothing but disappointment.
Mouthfeel - Light and watery with light carbonation. Smooth in the least, but so is the water it vastly portrays. Easily the worst aspect of this beer.
Overall - Such a letdown after the aroma, because it was quite reminiscent of Bell's Two-Hearted. Not sure if this is an old bottle, because there's no date to indicate freshness, but Bel-Air recently got these back in stock, so I can't imagine it's old. Glad I went with the $4 bomber and not the $10 sixer, because I'd be kicking myself right now.

3.68/5 rDev +4%
Picked up a single from Total Wine in early March for $1.99. No freshness date.
Beer poured orange with a soap bubble head that dissipated quickly.
Nose has hints of tropical and citrus hops.
Taste is pretty well balanced between pale and crystal malts and citrus and mango hops. Light lingering grapefruit rind in the after taste.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and decently carbonated.
Overall a pretty tasty brew that is worthy of a try.

A: Nice Ligt orange pale color with a soapy foam white head.
S: Nice pine character and slight dankyness to it as well.
T: Nice and dry with a good balance of hops and maltiness. Piney hops come thru in the taste but not much else. Tasty tho.
M: Very dry and medium bodied. Bitterness lingers with the dryness and leaves you wanting more.
O: A great sessionable pale ale with a nice clary crisp finish that satisfies the craving for a refreshing dry and hoppy but not sweet pale ale. Will buy again.
