Decent drinkable pale ale. First time trying this brewery. Light hops on the nose. Balanced by soft malts. Highly crushable. Bottled from Total in Norwalk CT.

Transparent seared orange with white frothy head. Aroma of lemon skin, grass, spicy hops, citrus, and breadiness. Tastes of breadiness, lemon skin, grass, spicy hops, citrus. Hefty body with medium carbonation.

It's o.k. Drinkable but nothing special. Wouldn't buy it again. It's a lovely orange in the glass. Can barely discern the hops and it just isn't interesting though it isn't bad. I do regret having purchased a 12 pack because frankly, I"m not sure it's worth the calories.

Another from the pick 6, in Shangy's in Emmaus.
Poured into a Pilsner glass.
Look: Less than clear lightly tinted amber with a white head that does not last very long but leaves some side
glass lace.
Aroma: Some floral hops, some bread malts, neither of which are prominent.
Taste; Malts are stronger than the hops, but both are present. Somewhat sour.
Not a beer I would purchase again, maybe would try it if I found it on tap somewhere.

I tried this at Mews Tavern in Rhode Island. It poured a clear orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had hop hints that included some citrus flare. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with some fruit notes present. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Bottle dated November 2017 into pint glass. (It's 6 months old so keep that in mind when reading this review.) Pours a very attractive golden-amber color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Initial impression is a faint taste of tropical fruits and a relatively mild earthy hops presence, with caramel and biscuit malts actually dominating the taste. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Finish is malty with a slight lingering bitterness. Underwhelming but not bad.
