Bottle from the sample pack. Honestly, didnít know what to think of this, but when my wife and I tried the first bottle it was a fight for the rest. Golden pour smells of big citrus, orange, and lightly sweet malts. Taste shows a bit of tropical notes on top of the citrus. Really freaking nice pale ale. Could drink all damn day. Just well balance and big flavor for a 5%.

Bottle pours dark yellow with generous pale yellow head. Pleasant citrus aroma. Taste citrus, caramel. Medium palate. Finish slight to moderate hops, unassuming. Really well done sessionable balances APA. Maybe a bit mild compared to many hoppy beers but overall it works very well.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma is orange, citrus, lemon, and grapefruit. Flavors are citrus, grapefruit, orange peel, and a nice malt backbone. This beer is hop forward but very balanced, itís got a really nice bright hop character, just a great pale ale overall!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow orange with a large, frothy white head. Aroma: zesty hops, orange peel, soft cheese. Subdued bitterness - light leather, spruce, grapefruit rind, vanilla cookies, sweet wheat. A pretty mellow, unexciting pale ale, though it is easy drinking and solidly made.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pristine peach pour with a few inches of offwhite head. Very nice, strong hop aroma: floral and a bit of pine, a bit of pollen too. Soft carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel, clean finish with a bit of sour flavor. Flavor is lighter than the nose, citrus hops, lemon lime effervescence, lemon juice and just a bit of lighter salty malt. Very good refreshing pale ale thatís not too in your face, tastes like really tasty lemon lime shaving cream, amazing.
