4.5/5 rDev +9.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: A clear amber and a nice frothy head on top. Very good lacing as well, intricate lines of foam dashing across the side of the glass.
Smell: There is a fantastic hop presence in this beer, consisting of a citrus based and slightly tropical profile. The malt is very subtle on the nose, just a nice sweetness and a tinge of biscuit to it.
Taste: The hops are again noticeable right off the bat, there is however a very large malt presence in the taste as well, a nice roasty and biscuity full body. The hops are very similar to the smell, citrus with some hints of more tropical fruits, and they work wonderfully with the malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Just excellent body to this beer, very full, not thin to the slightest. The breadiness and the sweetness really make this thing drinkable.
Overall: What a great beer, so easy to drink and so full of complexities, a truly magnificent pale ale. I will most certainly be getting a case of this every time the season comes round and it is available.

3.73/5 rDev -9%

12 oz glass into a pint glass over the weekend. Best by 7/10/14, so a couple days past. Oh well.
Looks good, amber with a yellow tint, 1 inch head somewhere between creamy and foamy (croamy?) Very good lacing. Not a lot of carbonation here.
Not getting anything on the nose. Maybe the old snout is off today.
Taste I'm getting is very subtle across the board. And improves toward the back end of the drink. A malt sweetness, with a faint but obvious hop bite (if that makes any sense) Could be affected by being at the end of its best by date.
Mouth was medium, neither soft or dry
Overall, not my favorite beer from one of the better breweries. But still a decent drink.
