look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Golden hazy amber with a 2 finger sudsy bubbly head. Head sticks around a minute and leaves behind some patchy lacing as the drink goes down.

S- Major hop forward nose. More of a mineral hop. But then gives way to some nice toffee and citrus notes.

T- Again, major hop forward. I think its a key signature with Marshall. Piney hops and mineral hops. Dry bread. Toffee. But leads into a great fruity balance of maybe peaches, apricots, and grapefruits. Well balanced.

M- Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Crisp, a tad dry, and refreshing.

O- My go-to beer for the summer. Excellent. Not a hop bomb, just hop forward. Great citrusy notes, crisp, and refreshing. Marshall continues to put out some excellent brews. Cheers!

Pours a hazy orange color with 2 fingers of head. The aroma may be the best part of this beer and possibly the best aroma Ive ever got from a beer. One of the most pungent and booming aromas, this literally smells like smelling hop pellets in your hand. Citrus and pine bombard the nose at first with a little bit of bready malt. The taste is very good with the citra hop clearly shining through with the distinctive passionfruit followed by some citrus and light pine notes. The bready malt helps balance this hoppy pale ale by removing bitternness and adding a smooth, creamy finish. Mouthfeel is a little sticky and sweet from the malt which detracts for me. Overall, this is a very tasty brew and woud make for a great beginners beer to hoppy ales and even satisfy even the most seasoned hop head.

Edit: This is also a unassuming beer considering the label design, which makes for the don't judge a book by its cover example. It may look average on the outside, but this is much more than average. (91/100)

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of citrus fruit, as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is more malt heavy. I get a lot of bread and toffee, as well as some citrus and grass from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Not much of a white head. Fractured surface foam and a nice collar.

Smell - Some hops. Citrus. More on the orange than grapefruit end of citrus. Biscuity malt. Lots of grain, it's the most prominent smell. Just the slightest metallic hint.

Taste - Hops, again, are right up front, but not the main story. Citrus, but then cracker malt merges into a darker malt flavor. Gets pretty toasty in the back end. Moderate bitterness and a very clean finish, which yields a mineral note. Maybe what was causing the metallic smell.

Mouthfeel - I'm 5 minutes into this review and the glass I poured is nearly gone. Medium light body and nicely crisp. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Well made with a crisp clean flavor. This isn't a pale ale that will blow you away but it's nice.

Looked at their web site/no information...

Pours an effervescent honey/amber with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Good head retention & fantastic lacing

S: Pineyness by the bucket, some orange peel & grainy notes

T: Much pineyness, some woody & grapefruitty hops layered with a touch of dry biscuitty malt up front. A touch mineral hoppyness comes through as this warms, plus a bit of aspirin bitterness, plus a touch of toffee. Finishes crisp with some woody hops as well, slightly dry & grassy

MF: Medium bodied, fairly creamy, nicely balanced

Fairly assertive as APAs go, but I like them that way. This one will be in my fridge all summer long most likely. Liked the revival red better, but this is a nice hoppy addition to their line

Pours up to a nice buff head that leaves lace and lasts. Hazy orange-amber color. Aroma is hop-forward with earthy, piney, spicy hops and a nice powdery malt backdrop. Flavor mimics nose with a nice crisp, dry finish. Mouthfeel is sort of watery and a bit astringent but passable. Overall a decent quaff with some nice spicy, biscuity notes to make it interesting.

i honestly forgot your name, but thanks for handing this one to me to try at the ccb taproom last april!

hazy golden amber with about two inches of white head on top. A nice slow fade gave way to copious side glass lace and a nice film across the top. You could tell it was nice due to ample carbonation consistently replenishing it. Great fresh aroma, with lots of floral hops and a good bit of grain in the back. The taste followed through pretty much the same. Great floral hop flavor hit you right away, but it was very light and refreshing, nothing overbearing about it at all. Nice underlying grain base had a touch of sweetness to it which gave it some good depth. Smooth, crisp finish with a nice lingering bitterness. Great light bodied feel and amble carbonation made it very light and refreshing and kept you wanting to come back for more. This was easily a session ale with no issues.
