4.03/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Comes in a can but poured out a small amount into a RedHook Double shot glass. It was a hazy amber color with off white head.

All other attributes were judged from the can.

S: Pine and floral hops. A hint of sweet and tangy grapefruit.

T: Similar to the smell. Pine is a little dank. Surprising amount of hops. Also getting an earthy hop character.

M: On the lighter side of a medium body and a little sticky. Medium carbonation.

O: Very sessionable and what I would like to see out of more pales. A pale ale that doesn't hold back. Nice aroma and flavor, respectable ABV, but more drinkable than an IPA. I'm proud to say these guys are from my home state and I hope they have major success.

a very pretty hazy golden, orange in the middle, straw towards the outside of the glass. 3/4" head that leaves quickly but leaves lacing.
smell of lightly toasted bread, medium light malt,yeast, tangy hoppy note.
taste, pale malt, perfect compliment of hops
medium light body, medium carbonation
how does mediocrity earn a 4.25? sometimes you just want a perfect, simple pale ale and this is right on the nose

12 oz can from the brewery in a mixed sixer (only available on site) . Poured into a SAPP glass.

A - very pretty. Hazy golden orange. Nice and bright. Tan - white head about two fingers. Good lacing.

N - sweet and hoppy. Lemon notes. Kind of flowery.

T - follows the nose. Quite hoppy with grapefruit and sweet pine. Toasted biscuit background. A bit too hoppy to call really well balanced, but it isn't too unbalanced. Pleasant with some bite.

M - smooth. No surprises. Bit of an aftertaste but nothing bad.

O - very satisfying pale ale from my hometown. Cheers!

From the can. Spring 2015 I presume. No date. Sampled on August 15, 2015.

The pour is a cloudy looking light to medium amber with a big off-white colored head.

A little light toast in the aroma along with a mild citrus character.

Light to medium mouthfeel.

The taste begins with a similar toasted braded flavor and the citrus notes flutter around in there too. The bitterness is mild to moderate.
