Crisp. Great hints of citrus. One of my favorite pale ales, if not my favorite

Appearance - 3.7/5
A very clear golden-orange. Small head presence

Smell - 4/5
A strong smell of pine/floral hops. Perhaps a hint of citrus.

Taste - 3.75/5
Hops, citrus, malt. A slight sweetness. More on the bitter side of beers, but nothing too intense. Not fancy or complicated, but seems to taste like a good pale ale is intended to taste.

Mouthfeel - 3.25/5
The carbonation has a bite to it (and the bitterness adds to this), but it is still fairly drinkable and the bite does not overpower. The beer is crisp with a light to medium body.

Overall - 3.75/5
Seems like a good pale ale that would be worth trying again

Weighting: Appearance 15%, Smell 15%, Taste 35%, Mouthfeel 15%, Overall 20%
