look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Orange bronze shade with good head and lots of carbonation.

Smell: Malt and citrus.

Taste: Earthy hops, pine, citrus, caramel, and toasted malts.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, slight bitter aftertaste.

The Verdict: Very good. Everything a pale ale should be, with a good balance between malts and hops, sweet and bitter. Maybe not quite as good as Sierra Nevada or SweetWater, but it's not very far behind at all.
