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

Pale yellow and hazy body topped with a one-finger thick head, lasting, rocky and creamy. Strong aroma of musk melon right off the bat; strawberries; very mild citrus and pear. Gently sweet flavor with some nice underlying light malt presence; low-key bitterness. Medium body; a bit slick and somewhat watery; dry overall.

A nice looking and fantastic smelling American pale ale that loses some of its allure in the taste and feel. My sample was canned 07/11/19 (DUSTIN HOPSMAN) so is relatively fresh in that regard. A nice beer and well worth trying.

Canned 12/03/18
L: pours hazy bright yellow in color. A finger of a bubbly white cap with appealing amounts of residual lacing.
S: notes of mango, papaya and stone fruit. Slight grassy hop profile. Minimal but nice smelling.
T: follows the nose with citrus added to the mix. Tropical flavor with grassy hop complex. Finish is lingering citrus. Simple and refreshing.
F: light and thin, moderate carbonation. Refreshing feel, a tad thin for a “hazy” style beer.
O: light and refreshing. I’m grateful to have tried. Cheers!

Poured hazy but not cloudy light yellow/hay color with a nice head that left an ok amount of lacing.

Bright, juicy, fruity aroma and taste of tropical, stonefruits, strawberries and melons. Great strength for a pale ale.

Feel is light, smooth but not creamy, good carbonation, low bitterness.

Overall, an outstanding hazy pale ale that I'd take over many of the muddled NEIPAs out here.

3.87/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

L: Hazy near-opaque orange hue resembling a fruit juice cocktail. A lingering half-finger foamy cap of a head with adequate lacing.

S: Peaches and mellow plums dominate. No tartness here. Soft overall.

T: simple. Thin peach presence. Decent but not outstanding.

F: Expected weight for the heavier side of the pale spectrum. Very slight chalkiness near the end.

O: This hazy pale would’ve killed the competition a few years ago as so many hazy’s were terrible brews in execution. Overall this one is good, but I would choose so many others (many from BareBottle!) before ever coming back to this one.
