Not sure I understand the low score for this beer.

I had it on tap in a shaker pint. It had a nice head and good lacing atop an amber color body. The smell and taste was floral and slightly sweet, very pleasant.

I had it with pizza after a nice evening event for my wife, maybe this helped it, but I really did enjoy this beer and would get it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Look: Copper color with a small head (1 finger) that dissipates into lacing
Smell: A little bit of pine, some citrus, faint hints of banana
Taste: A little weak on the taste, more spice than what I smelled, but not too much spice
Feel: Thin, kinda watery. Not necessarily a bad thing though, the spice helps it from being too thin and watery
Overall: 80/100

I first drank this last Labor Day weekend while cooking out with my father-in-law. It was the first pale ale I ever had and I really enjoyed it while being out in the Texas heat over the grill. My father-in-law who is not a craft beer drinker (if he drinks beer he'll be happy with any macro, but not a big drinker at all) had a few with me and was not offended. Honestly, not my favorite in the style, but it was the first I had, and it's not half bad. It is a refreshing brew that is easy sipping on a hot Texas day. I would give this to someone new to craft beer to ease them into pale ales and IPAs.

Pours well with very little head. Color is a dark amber with the cloudiness of an unfiltered beer. Smells pretty powerful for a nose like mine doesn't do well I can smell this beer. Tastes well, full bodied lots of good hops with a little bitterness at the end. I haven't given this Brewing company the time of day and I feel like I want to try more from this brewery. Definitely worth a shot.
