Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance-The beer pours a very hazy orange color with a tiny white head. The head fades fast leaving a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell - The aroma is odd with some vegetal aromas mixed with a bit of a fruit punch smell as well as some fruity malt.
Taste - The taste begins with with a sweet fruity taste that has notes of grapefruit hop and some light herb. There is a grassy flavor and some vegetal tastes that develop as the taste advances. At the end more sweet fruity tastes and more somewhat off vegetal tastes come to the tongue and leave one with a odd taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is slightly thicker and creamier with a carbonation level that is low. For the sweet and lighter hopped tastes the feel is pretty and makes for an easy drinker.
Overall - A decent brew, but there are some off flavors and aromas. Fun to try but nothing I will go back to soon...

I love this brewer, there, I wrote it - I. Love. This. Brewer.

That written, though this isn’t one of there better offerings, this is definitely a strong pale ale. The look is dark orange, the taste is full bodied, and mouthfeel is crisp and light. In short this is a very solid beer.

Great Pale ale from a brewery that has perfected stouts!
Reminds me more of a NEIPA than a Pale Ale and hazy like one too.
Doesn’t sit heavy but has a thick feel to it.
Not a pale ale like I’m used to but good beer non the less.

Light orange appearance. Optimal balance of hop bitterness and maltiness in aroma and taste. Not too thin. Similar to, and nearly as good as, SNPA. Very enjoyable pale ale. However, at twice the price of SNPA, I won't be returning to it.

Really nice, crisp, light pale ale from a brewery I know is always reliable. Slightly darker orange color with minimal head and lacing. Smells nice, lots of fresh citrus fruit and a little malt. Tastes of citrus zest - orange, grapefruit, passionfruit, mango, lemon - as well as some malt, vanilla, caramel and bread. Crisp smooth mild mouthfeel, good carbonation. The fruity sweetness is well-balanced with just a little hoppiness but there’s no bitterness at all. Nice and sessionable.
