Served as part of their beer sampler. This one poured bright and clear. Golden in color with a decent size head (in proportion to the sample glass) and left a small amount of fine lacing. A light maltiness rises from the beer to meet the nose but doesnt give off anything that assertive.
The taste is crisp and smooth with a nice pairing of sweet malt and bitter hops. A light to medium bodied beer that tends to give off some sourness in the finish. Overall this isnt that bad, but I am left looking for more hop character. Just a bit too plain for me, I guess Im just spoiled. Middle of the road at best.
(and that was before I noticed the 50/50 percentage, I swear...)
Serving type: on-tap

Draft at the brewery on a Pittsburgh visit. Pours clear golden colored with a very small soft white head. Aroma is light fruits, some light grassiness, and not much else. Flavor follows with lightly sweet citrus, sweet light malts, hay, nearly no hop presence whatsoever. Light bodied with medium low carbonation. Meh.

3.69/5 rDev +16%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. There was a scant head that fell quickly to a very thin ring of foam.
Aroma: Sweet grapefruit with a definite malt presence.
Taste: There was a faint sour hit at first contact, but the predominant taste was malt with some oranges and maybe bread along with a mild hops presence. The hops lingered along with some of the malty sweetness.
Mouthfeel: The body was on the thin side. The carbonation was appropriate.
Overall: This drinks as a classic American pale ale. It was refreshing and enjoyable; I especially liked the hints of orange in the taste. I don't think I've seen this in my area (southeast Michigan), but if I see it when I'm in the Pittsburgh area, I'd consider getting some.
