look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of lots of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, herbal, grassy hops followed by toasted and pale malts.

Taste: Toasted and pale malts forward with all the hop characteristics and bitterness in between. Balanced and drinkable.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, crisp, refreshing, bite, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: There is a nice balance to this beer and I wish I had more. Will have to put in some requests with friends driving through Pennsylvania again.

Serving type: bottle
