3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange-light amber color; small head. The aroma is very fruity, a jam, followed by some soft berries. Pleasant flavor, mellow toffee, not too sweet, with a good bitterness level and a quality hopping, almost not resiny and exclusively fruity, with lots of sweet oranges. Very good, and fresh must be excellent.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Opaque beige. The aroma has almost a Belgian accent in its yeasty fruitiness. This accentuates a big, fresh, leafy hop character. The body is creamy, but with good spritz as well. This pulls a pleasing fresh bread malt note across the palate. The malt carries with it abundant hop - leafy, slight orange, dalandan notes - and a slightly perfumey yeast note. The bitterness perception is moderate but insistent. The finish is dry, herbal and slightly pithy. When you deconstruct this beer you see how an apparently simple dynamic can be executed nearly to perfection.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: The pour is dark orange-amber with a couple of fingers worth of white foam. Quite a bit of lacing forms as I drink my glass down.
S: A big fresh citrus aroma to start things off. Lots of grapefruit followed by wet floral notes. The malts fill in the back end of the nose, giving the beer a nice breadiness.
T: Intense grapefruit flavor starts things off and is followed by more grapefruit, this time in the form of the peel. The floral character is still present as well, and the bready malt provides a bit of a balance against a fairly strong bitterness (for a pale ale, anyway).
M: The body is medium with a very crisp and lively carbonation to the beer.
D: A solid pale ale here, and a great beer to have a growler of. I thoroughly enjoyed my several pours.
