4.51/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A--Gorgeous beer. Light amber/copper in color. Medium foamy head, slight lacing left in the glass.

S--Absolutely wonderful. Citrus hops are up first, followed by a hint of pine and then the malt.

T--Very bright and crisp. As with the nose, the citrus hops stand out well, with a nice malt taste to follow. A great aftertaste that leaves just a hint of dry bitterness.

M--Just what I was expecting from the style. Medium body and very easy to drink. Perfect amount of carbonation for me and extremely refreshing.

O--Definitely one of the best Pale Ales that I've had, right up there with Sierra Nevada, which as far as I'm concerned is the holy grail of Pale Ales. This has slightly less hops to me and slightly more malts. Great beer all around and there will be plenty of it in my future.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. 6.2 ABV. Best by June 11, 2014.
