Great beer!

Though very hoppy for a pale ale. Woud easily pass as an IPA. But it's an OPA after all, and maybe that's what they are like?

Copper, orange, hazy appearance.

Fruity smell, some butter and herbs.

Bitter and tangy and very smooth in your mouth. Citrus and pine in the hops, clear water, straightforward clean and still gritty pale malts.

Very pleasing breakfast beer. Best consumed with some Oklahoma Joe's BBQ.

L: Hazy golden with large thick head. Poured in a tulip. Some bubbles. Looks really good.

S: Floral and hoppy. Some citric tones.

T: Moderately hoppy with strong floral and fruit tastes. Some citric flavors bring up the end but its very sweet throughout. Reminds me of apples and grapes really. Very refreshing for a hot spring day. This is a Pale Ale I would give someone to introduce them slowly into hoppy beers.

F: Light bodied, bitter hop sting on the tongue but that gives way to a smooth finish.

O: Very good pale ale. Bridges the gap between light ales and IPAs very well.

The appearance is a nice brown, a bit dull

Descent smell. The high hops cause it to smell as much like Everclear as it does beer.

The appearance is medium, dull brown.

This is the best pale ale I've ever had.

The mouthfeel is like a condom wrapping around the tongue.

The is the only pale ale I've ever partially enjoyed, but it's still too hoppy and I wouldn't have it again. Compared to preferred styles, I'd give this a 2.5
