3.9/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Rather hazed, darkened copper-toned body with a scant, barley off-white head from a generous, to-the-brim pour.

Smell: Grassy, earthy, resinous scents which easily eclipse lighter, sweetish touches of bready barley and distant toffee.

Taste: A bready taste of floor-malted Maris Otter. Light hits of toffee and sweet honey. Earthy, grassy dry-hopped character with a bitter orange citrus taste. Moderate bitterness. Dry, resinous, and still firmly grassy after the midway point. Hint of lemon juice on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: It's good and seems in the same vein as their Plan B IPA and BR-549 APA. Pairs well with an appetizer of fried crawfish served with a side of spicy rémoulade sauce.

On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours a hazy light copper color with a one-finger slightly off-white head. The head recedes into a patchy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of grainy pale malts with moderate amounts of citrus and floral hops. As it warms the malt aromas sweeten a bit and the hops become more robust.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. Somewhat dry pale malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by citrus and light herbal hops. Midway through the sip the herbal notes fade a bit and allow leafy hop flavors to work their way into things, turning the flavor profile more toward the bitter side of things. The hops carry through to a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall this was certainly one of the drier pales I've had from 5S. Worth a shot if you see it on.
