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

Pours an innocent and light yellow color, there is a haziness about it that seems to be yeast/derivative. 1/3" loose bubbled head white in nature. Aroma was grain and almost no hop quotient discernable.

Taste, more problems, the hopping is even lighter. Smacks just as much, if not more of a blonde ale instead of a pale ale or extra pale ale. The yeast they choose comes across as possible belgian? Something weird phenolic and spice rack underneath the grain presence. The bitterness is there, clocking in around 40-50 ibu, but there is just no hop flavor, not even grapefruit really to speak of, just all high alpha acid type stuff with nothing to add in terms of taste.

I'd give these away if they were in my fridge.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; best by 03-04-18.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, golden to amber color with a half inch, white head, patchy retention, and modest, fragmented lacing.
S: Floral bouquet: honeysuckle, rose. Aromas of grasses and light barley malt.
T: Very grainy flavor with persistent, stronger than expected bitterness on the back end.
M: More medium bodied than expected. Carbonation subtle, but present.
O: Thought I'd enjoy this more than I did. A bit too bitter for the overall flavor profile. Unlikely to be back.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-burnt orange/copper color. Finger’s worth of white foamy head. Messy lace. The aroma starts off with some sweet orange zest, some lemon peel and then some grassy hops. Caramel and toffee malts play with the balance along with some breadiness. The flavor leans malty sweet with a nice clean taste upon my tongue. Well balanced in the aftertaste and leads well into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine as it is. Overall, good American pale ale that I could come back to if given the chance.

Pours a medium-light gold, a little hazy, with a nice little cap of creamier white head that leaves small sticky lacing. The aroma doesn't exist beyond faint whiffs of grain. The taste is much the same, bordering into sweet. The body has a nice weight to it, mostly smooth with just a hint of carbonation.

Not much hop presence on the nose, almost lagered scent on the nose. Nothing too memorable about this one, but has the potential to be an everyday ale. Bottled from grocer in King of Prussia.
