Picked up a fresh sixer the day received at the local liquor store.

A: Pours a faint orange-y tangerine hue quick with a very fine-carbonated head that dissipates in a flash. Leaves zero lacing and almost looks flat the entire time its in your glass.

S: Toasted malt/bread and doughy scent.. and hops tingle the senses. Smells like citrus and oranges.

T: Very clean taste. The hops are the highlight here, quick snappy bite and definitly picking up the tangerine flavor in here. Very drinkable, could session these easily. Very quaffable indeed. Smooth and refined.

M: Classic pale ale here. The hops are the highlight. Dry-hoppy mouthfeel and balanced nicely with the malt backbone.

This beer is very good. Similar to their classic Pandemonium Pale Ale. This one is more fruity, and balances well with the malty backbone. Nicely done again, Shorts!

A- A bit cloudy, orange in color. Little head disappears quickly with plenty of lingering lacing. (Note- I tipped the bottle over while pouring, which may explain why the head was small.?...)

S- Herbal malts prevail. Maybe a little orange.

T- Slight herbal sweetness with a citrus backbone. however the sweetness is soon overpowered by a mild hoppy character that is pleasing to my tongue. Finishes crisp and clean.

M- This pale ale goes down very easy clean and wet. Real pleasant refreshing feel.

O- Shorts hit the spot with this one for sure! Incredible drinkability, smooth and crisp. Great hop flavors throughout. Also this one doesn't have the "Shorts aftertaste" that some of their beers can have. A great version of a pale ale.

3.16/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: golden honey color. very hazy and opaque. huge three finger foamy head that fades to a lacing.

Smell: caramel malts, citrus and herbal notes.

Taste: sweet caramel malts. battled by citrus and herbal/earthy hops. i don't like the herbally sweet taste from the combination

Mouthfeel: strong bitterness that lingers. medium body.

Overall: i was very excited for short's releasing 3 new pale ales that would be easily available. but i am glad i tried the single before i got a six pack. this beer is to muddled up by flavors that just don't go well for me.
