3.39/5  rDev -2%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: A light gold, clear pour with a small head that disappears.

S: Sweet hops lead with a citrus undertone.

T: Mild hops are obvious, though the overall taste is a little lacking. Tastes a little watered down, but only just.

M: Smooth and medium-bodied mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation. Fairly light, even for a pale ale.

D: Rather smooth and light so nothing to stop multiple glasses. The lacking taste might cause one to search for a better brew, though.

3.33/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale straw/gold color. Poured a thin fizzy/coarse white head that dissipated fairly quickly. light broken lacing.

S: Grains, floral hops and citrus bite predonimate.

T: Consistent with smell; light wet grains and some grapefruitty floral hops.

M: Medium body. Good carbonation to balance. Smooth and clean in the mouth and on the palate to ste up the next drink

D: Decent APA. Not real complex, but they don't have to be to be good.

Poured a light golden color with a small frothy head. Smelled of a little rye and bouquet of hops, floral. Tatse was much like the smell, pretty darn good. Mouthfeel had a spicyness to it but smooth and really good. Overall this is a good beer and recommended.
