Draft, on-tap at Yard House in California.
Slightly murky, orange yellow color, with a light beige head. Foam settles to a floating film, minimal lace.
Smell is of malt, some citrus, and herbal hop aromas.
Taste is much the same, mild bitterness, not nearly as much hop as was expected.
Low carbonation, slightly crisp finish. Smooth mouth feel.
Overall, a pretty good beer. A nice option.

Body is a hazy orange that looks fantastic; head is a little thin but I rate this highly anyway just for the color.

On first whiff I get strong floral notes and honey, quickly moves into hoppy citrus, mostly orange but also some peach and maybe grapefruit. Has a mild bready malt character too. Smells great but not aggressively hoppy.

Flavor opens with sweet citrus, oranges but not particularly bitter, fades into sweet flowers and some maltiness, I think I even get some banana in this. Not super hoppy, not overly malty either, this is a well balanced pale ale. I like this a lot actually.

Mouthfeel is nice, creamy and very good carbonation, between that and the really balanced flavor drinkability is great.

This is a very nice and well balanced pale ale with quite a lot going on in the flavor for such a light beer. Great session beer.
