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

The appearance was a slightly hazy burnt to pale sort of orange color with a fair foamy sort of white head that slid off at a moderate pace. Some sliding lace.
The aroma had some sweet grapefruit/tangerine sort of thing going on and then moderately sliding into a subtle herbal/floral and bready sort of afterthought.
The flavor blended the prior mentioned aromas together mostly sweet and following through a subtle bitterness. Aftertaste was slightly malty.
The mouthfeel was slightly towards the medium side of the wheelhouse. Perhaps just shy of it, the more I think about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good.
Overall, pretty nice APA, I'd do this one again.

Served in a pint glass at Brendan Behan in J.P.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with good vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Grapefruit, tangerine, light floral, herbal, grassy, bready, and pale malts.

Taste: The hop flavor is pretty chill with nice malt balance and mild bitterness to round things out.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, light bitterness, light bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty awesome pale ale. Definitely grabbing another.

Hazy gold color. Decent starting head that leaves some solid lines of ring lace.

Western Hemisphere hop aroma of grapefruit rind and pine needles.

Light in body like one would expect in a "summer" ale, but the rest is strongly flavored, mostly harsh citrus. There's even an alcohol presence despite the low abv. Pale malt start but it fades quickly. In short a hop lovers summer beer.
