3.88/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into an Imperial pint glass. Bottle reads an ABV of 6.1

A - Beautiful clear, golden straw color. Minimal head that dissipated quickly.

S - Bit of an adjunct smell, touch of orange, and a light hoppy scent.

T - Good hop presence, not overwhelming, but nicely pronounced. Sweet, slight toasty malt overtones with a little yeast.

M - Nicely carbonated, good clean taste on the tongue.

O - Not distinguished among its type, but still pretty good session beer. Wouldn't go out of my way, but I'd be happy to try it again.

This one poured out as a very clear looking yellow color. The head at first was big and fizzy. The lacing in slim. The smell of the beer is alright, it's got the faint aroma of oranges and lemons. The taste of the beer has a nice hop quality to it giving off some citrusy flavors with a mild malt aftertaste. The mouthfeel is very light and refreshing. Overall it was nice to try, I would drink it again.

This beer poured up super clear. It has a big white fluffy head to start and that has slowly died down to a nice thin cap of foam. Once again this is incredibly clear and golden. With clarity, color, foam and substantial lacing it looks light and refreshing.

The aroma has hints of citrus and earthy hops with faint light malt sweetness. There is lemon, a bit of grapefruit and pineapple.

The flavor is bitter at first but changes to a slightly sweet maltiness for a moment before citrus hops take over. The hops are sweet with lemon and pine. followed by a slightly dry, slightly bitter hop finish.

This a good little pale ale but it doesn't blow me away. Definitely worth drinking again though.
