look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Picked up a couple of singles from Total Wine at the end of April for $1.99 each. Bottled on 3/26/2014.

Beer poured orange with a nice white head upon the initial pour.

Nose is primarily malty with a hint of citrus.

Taste is pretty well balanced between the malts and citrus hops. The alpha hopping used wins out in the end and leave a nice citrus rind lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is decently carbonated to provide a nice refreshing finish.

Overall an above average APA that provides what a pale ale is supposed to do - this is a nice refreshing bitter beer, kind of similar to some of the session IPA's available today.
