3.95/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance- Pale golden almost Miller liteish in color but poured with a big creamy head.
Smell- More faint than I would like but what's there smells awesome. It is malty and somehow just smells fresh in a clean laundry kind of way. Only 5% but I can pick up alcohol in the nose.
Taste- Crisp clean easy drinking pale ale. The standout flavor is pine but it is nicely balanced by the malt. The alcohol I got in the nose wasn't apparent in the taste.
Mouthfeel- It is on the thin side but the carb is nice. Feels almost fizzy like a soda but in a good way.
Overall- It is an above average beer which I thoroughly enjoyed. This would be a great beer for someone just starting to drink pale ale or ipa but still has enough flavor to keep me interested.

4.08/5 rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a can-shaped glass.
A- Light, foamy pale white head forms three fingers thick. Hazy pale golden body with occasional spurts of carbonation.
S- Melon and citrus are big and bold. Hop resin hits the nose with a second whiff. It's a heavily fruity profile with hints of sweetness.
T- The citrus take its time to arrive and hit the palate, but then it builds into a strong orange peel flavor. Melon flavors waft in and out as well. The finish is resinous and offers a dose of pine.
M- It's impressive how refreshing and light drinking this is. The slight downside is that it initially feels a bit watered down until the hops hit with some flavor and an aggressive bitterness. It's still got enough sweetness to suggest there's some malt in there and this plays well of the melon flavors. It's an interesting blend of flavors and feels.
This could easily be my summer go-to. It's not filling, it's refreshing and it is full of interesting and tasty flavors. It's a gem.
