4.1/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a light amber, clear liquid with very little carbonation, but a nice white head that has an okay retention.
Smell is very nice for a pale ale, almost smelling stronger than a pale ale, more like an IPA. Strong citrus smell consisting of a good orange smell.
Taste is a very nice pale ale. Very well-balanced between a very nice orangey hop taste and a slight caramel malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel has a nice thicker mouthful than I am used to in a pale ale. Good, full sip than goes down easy.
Drinkability is great on this pale ale. Ellicotville does a great job on this pale ale. It has a lot of balance along with some very nice taste and goes down so quickly and smoothly that it could really get me into trouble. Great pale ale for any season.

3.63/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Strong pine up front. Lemon rind notes persist. Light bready malt character that is subdued. Clean fermentation character.

Appearance: Cloudy amber pour with hazy gold edges. Moderate white foam stand.

Flavor: More pine and lemon notes. Biscuity and doughy malt background. Balance is nearly even but the bitterness starts to dominate as the beer warms up. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium light bodied with moderately high carbonation. Slightly oily with no heat or astringency noted.

Overall impression: A clean, hoppy pale ale with an accent on pine and lemon notes. Well done.
