Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, honey, earth, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, honey, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but the smell is much better to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours a pale golden colour, bit hazy maybe. Head is off-white, medium bubbly with a sticky cradle of lacing left behind. Pretty nice.

Smells lovely - fruity and floral. Tangy passionfruit with a touch of citrus, pine and fresh leather at the back. Not overly sweet, just tangy and lovely.

Taste is similarly tangy, with a very strong, redolent passionfruit character. Touch of plum and apricot at the edge and then slightly piney, woody and a touch of resinous hop bitterness, just to balance out the lighter fruity hop notes. Beautiful palate, just lovely and refreshing.

Smooth, fairly full. A bit too dry on the back, could leave more residual behind.

Like a last gasp of Summer, today, but one that will stay in my memory until next year. Lovely drop.

4.35/5  rDev +13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Cloudy straw color with fizzy, persistent head and good lacing.

Aroma: Citrus aromas of tangerine, and peaches, with strong, resiny, piney, grassy, green/fresh hops.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Texture is light on the tongue, with very little carbonation present. Flavor up front is that of juicy citrus, like mandarin orange, or tangerine, with the finish seeing a strong, bitter hop flavor. The attributes of the hops in the finish are very green and fresh, with an herbal, tea-like character and a resiny bitterness on the back of the tongue. Light, flatter texture complements the fresh, juicy, green flavors and creates a very drinkable pale ale.

Final Word: Highly recommended pale ale! This brew’s balance and cohesiveness make it enjoyable through and through, but all while still retaining the strong hop profile of a pale ale. Many pale ales present only the in-your-face bitterness of the hops, but Sloth shows you a softer, more nuanced side of the ingredient by bringing out its citrus, herbal, and green character. This gives the hop lover everything they could ask for, but without the overwhelming/overbearing bitterness that could turn other drinkers away. Granted, the bitterness is still there, but it exists in harmony with the other flavors/textures in the beer. This is a crisp, refreshing brew that, while suitable for a drink in the heat, presents enough excitement to please the session drinker looking for a challenge! Again, this is an extremely well rounded beer that almost anyone can enjoy and everyone should absolutely experience! Only avoid this beer if you have no tolerance for hop flavors/bitterness at all.

Biased review (I am still learning to enjoy IPA, APA, Pale Ale, and the like)

First impression:
Smells like grapefruit.
Tastes like toasted cereal or straw. Tastes like Grapefruit

Aroma: grapefruit, pine, cereal
Smell: grapefruit and cereal right up front.
Taste: grapefruit forward - soapy aftertaste. Citrus aftertaste is strong - leaves my whole mouth tasting piney
Mouthfeel: carbonation builds as soon as it touches my mouth. Feels like it’s cleaning my tongue. Slight tannins - mouth feel dryer after tasting
Overall: This is more like an IPA than a pale ale.

Color: dark straw - dark hay
Lacing: very light lacing left on glass.

Flavor: grapefruit, cereal, soap, citrus, pine.
Feel: thick carbonation
Finish: fresh, tannin, dry
