look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

look is light gold with a 1/2 inch thick foam lingering head
smell citrus hops not over powering in fact the malt shines through
taste creamy pale ale - balance but seems much lighter than the abv at 5.6 in fact i had to check the can cause it seems more like a blonde ale
feel is medium light
overall a solid ale - crushable but average for a micro brew.

It pours a golden color and leaves the same color body. With a one inch foamy white head, there is a nice spider webbed lacing speckling the pint glass. Some light carbonation is seen slowly rising. The smell has a good combination between the malts and the hops. The taste is even between the malts and hops. I would say this is very drinkable. The palate is about a light to medium with a good crispness lingering about it. There is nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, this is a decent brew, standard and solid, but for the price, I’m not sure if I would have come back to it.

Pours a lightly hazy pale gold in color with a bit over a finger of white head that fades to a 1/4" coating. Aroma is very muted but I get a touch of sweetness, some herbal, floral, and grassy hops. Taste has some lightly caramel malt sweetness, tangerine, floral and earthy hops. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. A pretty solid classic APA, I will admit that I probably would have enjoyed this one more (and rated it higher) a few years ago.

Had this on tap at the restaurant served in the 8 beer sampler. The beer had a murky brown-amber appearance with a bubbly head and lacing. The aromas were decently full of herb-rich hops and the taste followed the nose with a bittersweet balance of citrus and hops. The beer had a lightly creamy texture with some decent carbonation for its mouthfeel. Overall, I thought this beer was pretty good in its appearance, aromas, and taste.

This one is kind of all over the place for me. Pours a light amber color with decent head. Aroma is confusing. I smell some floral and tropical hops on top of some strange aroma that I can't identify. It might be from the malts, but not a smell I recognize. Luckily, it tastes better than it smells. Taste is pretty typical for a pale ale. A little fruity and floral from the hops balanced with a good amount of malt sweetness. Finishes a tad bitter for a pale ale which doesn't bother me. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Overall, I expected more from this beer since I really enjoyed a couple of other beers from this brewery and this is supposed to be their flagship.
