Smell: has a bigger floral aroma than most pale ales I've tried. I get a little bit of citrus, but it seems more lemony than usual.
Taste: taste is similar, a little bit of fruit comes in, perhaps some lemon maybe even raspberry? (maybe it's the floral aroma playing tricks on my pallet). This beer is very subtle, it is hard to detect most of the flavors in it. This is good and bad.
The mouthfee and flavor profilel is very light, this might be a good beer to convert BMC drinkers.
As far as drinkability goes, this is great. It is subtle and not invasive. The ABV is low enough to consider it sessionable by BA standards, which makes it perfect to drink a few of these without getting too buzzed.

on tap at Doubletree Hilton Hotel, Portland
Dark amber with white film.
Dark toast, orange rind, and pine on the nose.
Caramel and peach sweetness with lots of candy, then resin and tangelo hops end.
Mango finish and dry linger.
Medium, chewy, round.
Candy sweet - very entry level. No IBU bite, and cloys a bit. Slight sandpaper bitterness as it warms, but just not what I’m looking for in an APA.
Serving type: on-tap

I was looking at reviews of this earlier today and decided to go for it. Not sure why earlier posts mention great hops in this one. Just not feeling that. Maybe my six pack is bad but this is similar to budweiser. Very disappointed! Yep, AAL taste all the way.
