A slightly hazy orange in color with a big off-white head. Aromas of fresh mint and some orange peel. Taste is more mint and orange, with a toasty bread middle, and a piney, earthy finish. Mouthfeel is good. Excellent flavor for the gravity. Overall a very good pale ale that I would get again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color and a billowy head that leaves sheets of lace

Smell: Toasty, with a faint grainy character

Taste: Toasted malt and caramel, up front, followed by an herbal, slightly minty hop element; the resinous herbal character and caramel sweetness highlight the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Well-balanced but a bit lacking in the hop department; more of a malt forward pale ale

A- Light amber with a thin head.
S- The smell was underwhelming. Slightly malty, with some hops but not enough of either or both to be fully satisfactory.
T- Toasted malt, with just a bit of tropical fruit hoppiness that also has some minty qualities.
M- Light bodied and moderately carbed. This one didn't enough weight though.
D- A drinkable pale. Not my favorite pale but decent enough that it can go well with some BBQ. It's a decent beer, but there are better pales out there.

pours a clear amber with somewhat of a white head that goes away rather quickly, and an okay lacing.

smell is slightly hoppy, some malt, and a little citrus.

taste is like or average pale ale with a little kick, good malts that are a little on the sweet side, hops, some caramel, ends smooth with a little more bitterness than norm.
