3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
THIS BEER POURS A SLIGHTLY DARK GOLDEN COLOR BUT IS MEANT TO BE DRANK STRAIGHT OUT OF THE CAN. 21ST AMENDMENT IN MY OPINION IS ONE OF THE TOP THREE CANNED BREWERS IN THE WORLD, THIS ONE DOES NOTHING BUT HELPS THEIR CAUSE.PERSONALLY I TEND TO LEAN TOWARDS BREWS WITH HIGH ALCOHOL CONTENT, BUT I DRINK BEER BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO NO BEER IS SAFE AROUND ME. THIS ONE IS VERY LOW IN ALC. BUT I HAVE TO SAY I HAVE NEVER TASTED A BREW WITH SUCH LOW ALC. % YET SO MUCH FLAVOR, GRANTED THIS ISNT AN IMPERIAL IPA OR A BARLEY ALE, BUT THE AMOUNT OF QUALITY FLAVOR IS STILL VERY IMPRESSIVE. IT TASTES OF NUTTY HOPS WITH A FRUITY SLIGHTLY CHERRY HINT THAT LACES THE TONGUE VERY WELL. TO ME THIS IS THE EPITOME OF A SESSION BEER. NOT TO MENTION SOME OF THE MOST CLEVER ART WORK EVER PUT ON A BREW.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of citrus hops and not much else which is fine with me, maybe a little bit of biscuit in there. Taste is much the same as the aroma, very light and fruity citrusy hops with a lgiht malt backbone to balance it out. An excellent hoppy session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 4/8/2011. The American Pale Ale/Bitter pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz can. Medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is citrusy and floral with a touch of bread and malt. A medium bodied ale. The malts are fruity, bready and sweet. The hops are citrusy and perhaps a touch piney. Nice carbonation. Good balance. There are a lot of hops in this beer, from the first hint in the aroma when you open the can to a nice clean bitter aftertaste. The hops let you know they are there, but never really overwhelm you at any point. I gotta say this is a great session bitter. Lots of flavor with not all that much alcohol. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.

Can. Brown amber color. Smells of pine, lemon and cake. Taste is hoppy but very crisp. Consistency of a hybrid pilsner, ipa. Very easy drinking and really good. One of my top session beers probably

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light amber pour with a decent white head. The aroma was full of pleasant hops. A light pine lingered along with some bread like malt. Overall an excellent nose, hoppy as it should be. Flavors began with a nice hop presence that lasted and lasted. Nicely done. Light all around but developed enough to stick with you. Finish was slightly bittersweet. Light fruit. Mouthfeel wasnít thin as you may think, decently full. Easily a top session, maybe the best. Refreshing, light and damn good.

Body is light, great carbonation, clean. Light citrus flavors, faint butterscotch, juicy hops, earthy with slight metallic notes. Dry finish, nice bitterness. Easy quaffer. Can procured from statelineliquors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours crystal clear amber with some stray bubbles feeding an enormous fluffy beige head that shows excellent retention and lacing.
Aroma is pretty hoppy for an APA with some light grassy and floral hops up front with some toasted bread. There is also an effervescent peppery character to the nose.
The taste is bitter up front with citrus and grassy hops tingling the palate up front. There is an ESB-like toasted cracker malt backbone. The finish is dry and crisp.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied and highly carbonated, maybe a little too carbonated. Itís almost spritzy in itís feel.
This is a really nice low ABV brew with more flavor than youíd expect from any 4.4% beer out there. Very, very drinkable stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange or maybe copper (bonus appearance point for the label...). Big grapefruit aroma, with a little bit of pine resin thrown in. Citrusy, toasty, a bit of rye bread. Some woody notes, as well. Nicely sweet finish. Thanks to lithy for this one!
