Pours a light/medium amber color, with a half inch head that leaves lacing throughout drinking.

Smell is very strong on and refreshing right after pouring but seems to settle after a few minutes out. At first smells of mildly strong hops and later you can smell something citrusy .

Taste is good especially halfway during the glass the beer shows its citrus flavors and hops not bad at all.

Mouthfeel is good.

Conclusion this beer is a good session beer for experienced craft beer drinkers. For noobs there may be to much flavor.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a slightly cloudy gold - juuuust this side of amber. Lacing up nicely.

Not a whole lot of malt going on here for as dark as it is. Mostly, there's astringent hop bitterness up front that give way to a sort of grapefruit sourness.

Probably just fine on a hot day; not terribly interesting to me.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Average looking, kinda tan and mostly clear with rising bubbles and not a lot of head or lace.

Aroma is typically blonde ale, a little sweet corn and some straw/grassy notes with a light maltiness. Flavor follows suit. Body is light and quite easy to drink, refreshing and just a little slick on the back end.

Overall it's enjoyable, perhaps not my personal favorite from Pike, but still tasty.
