look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy orange-ish to lighter copper color with a light tan head. In the aroma, grapefruit and orange citrus hops. In the taste, dry grain like malt and a small hop presence. A small hop bite and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel,, with a small dry citrus hop in the aftertaste. More citrus in nose and in aftertaste, it is ok.

Bottle pour at Field Of Drafts held at The Hanger in Lancaster, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and subdued hop aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a poor beer that has a more fruity than hoppy aspect.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Pours a clear, copper color. One inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pine, hops, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of wheat, and slight metallic aroma. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pine, sweet malt, hops, hint of alcohol, and slight metallic flavors. Overall, decent beer with simple characteristics, but the metallic aroma and flavor diminishes the quality.

Big white head settles into a thin lacing above a clear copper colored beer.

An almost soapy lemony citrus aroma with a little bit of some caramel malts coming through.

Light caramel malts taste with a little bit of some citrus hops sneaking in there.

A light dry aftertaste on this medium bodied pale ale.

Not enough hops for me to consider this a good quality pale ale, This would be more of what I would expect from a amber or red.
