3.1/5  rDev -24.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

12oz bottle poured into a shaped pint glass.

Appearance
Amber with 2-3 fingers of off-white head. Excellent clarity with very low carbonation. Good head retention.

Nose
Grapefruit, lemon, honey and candy sugar.

Taste
Honey and caramel covered grains. Bready malts. Notes of grapefruit juice and lemon. Hints of pineapple and honeydew melon.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth and subtly crisp.

Overall
Very malt forward Pale Ale. Even with the use of American hops this tastes like an English Pale Ale. Meh...why does this have such good ratings?

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.
