look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy light orange with fine, soapy head.

Smell is juicy and citrusy with notes of grass and peaches.

Taste is crisp and citrusy with a hint of grassiness. Notes of peaches along with a nice, rounded bitterness and a hint of licorice.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a very nice APA, drinkable and balanced.

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

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a finger of effervescent white head. The head leaves some cobwebs of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of peaches, honeydew melons, and candied citrus.

The flavor brings notes of cantaloupe, peach, and grapefruit with a doughy malt backbone.

The feel is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp, yet a touch oily. A bit too light.

Overall, a pretty good pale that is a nice showcase of the motueka hop. It's highly drinkable and refreshing. Would definitely crush this one again.
