3.8/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

bottle into pint glass

appearance: darker orange/amber with huge foamy white head

smell: earthy hops, resin, wheat, hay, citrus, lemon, grass

taste: follows the nose with an earthy hop bitterness without too much flavor complexity. however it's very drinkable, very down to earth beer that you can drink without much thought. Notes of rye, breadiness, while being slightly on the watery side.

mouthfeel: not much carbonation, feels like a macro lager

overall: not my favorite pale ale, but a very decent highly drinkable one. I would buy this again but not seek it out, it's a great pale ale but nothing super special. I could session this.

3.25/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

when this was poured, it has a orangish color body with a small head that quckly lays down to a ring of lace. The smell has a earthy hop and malt aroma to it. The taste has a pine taste up front, and followed by a hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is smooth and leaves a slight bitterness on the tonuge. Overall this is a slightly above average pale ale.

2.95/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Appearance: Slightly hazy, copper color with one finger of head that fades quickly to a ring.

Aroma: Toasted malt, grain husk, a little catty, faint earthy hops and tortilla chip, strangely enough.

Taste: Some biscuity malt upfront and a dull bitterness throughout; body is on the thin side of medium. Some graininess and dishrag on the back end. Bitterness lingers on through the finish.

The Rest: Picked this up on a recent trip to MI to try something new. Probably wouldn't bother with it again. Reminds me of a mediocre home brew - you can tell what they were after but it's just not right.
