L: brilliant gold amber 2” foam cap dissipates to a film, lacy, cap is white to a little gold tint, S: herbal hops, malt, fruit, and melon. T: The palate starts malt then blends into fruit, hints of melon and then a peppery hop finish. The finish has lingering hop flavors, a touch of fruit and bitter. F: Above average carbonation, medium to a little less on the body O: a flavorful and easy to drink American Pale Ale.

Nothing super special here. Look was sunshine orange with limited head. Smell was lacking at times, at times malty at times vinegary. Taste was very good - good, tend to rate up if it is close. Malt, tinge if pine. Not very complex.

White lacing on the glass. Redish amber color. Smells of hops and some grains. I get a bitter taste kind of like Red Hook. Not too overpowering. At 5.8% abv they are really drinkable. Cheers!!

Malt on the nose. Tastes like they forgot to add the hops. No hops to speak of. Ok carb.
