3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can picked up from Brewforia Meridian for $2.... Poured into my tall goblet and it produces 1" of white foam that produces decent white lacing.. the brew is fairly clear golden.
Good citrus hops with some background tropical fruity notes... lite pale maltiness that helps bloom the hops.
Flavor mirrors the nose... but seems weak on the palate overall... A light body makes for a IMO a bit of a watery profile... Still very drinkable... sessionable even.
My big bitch would be this seems like an old can.... I picked it up off of a shelf that was obviously room temperature... just seems a bit stale/old.
I bet this would be great very fresh... and it is something that many breweries donít do... Low ABV/sessionable pale ales are great... this one just didnít seem "fresh".

Citrus, peach/apricot, light bready malt aroma. Similar fruity hop flavor; maybe subtle strawberry? Also some pepper, and light bread.

Thanks to Prufrockstar for the trade - look, Iím not going to try to describe this. Suffice to say I like clean, hoppy, low abv pale ales. A lot.. I like them even better when fresh hop flavor shines through. I really liked this one.

Gold, clear, white head. Big aroma of lemony citrus hops. Flavor of light grainy malt, citrusy hops, orange-lemon. Light bodied, nice hop showcase.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to my summer secret santa. Pours a clear light golden amber color with a small foamy head that fades very slowly. Aroma is really nice. Juicy tangerines, tropical fruit, light caramel, and light flowers. Taste has a light fruit cocktail sweetness up front with a dry and mildly bitter finish. Not as juicy as the aroma suggests but still good. More grassy and floral, especially in the finish. Solid APA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice golden yellow to slight orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There was some light foamy lacing stringing itself down the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nice pine to citrus to grapefruit hop conglomeration of sorts with a delicate malt base.
The taste took those nice hop aromas and malt base and blended very nicely.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to slight medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it.
Overall, this was a pretty good APA worthy of having again.

12 oz can pours clear gold with a finger of foam. Aroma is pine and floral hops. Tastes like a light IPA. Great bitterness. Spicy and smooth finish. I could drink this all day! Excellent pale ale.

Can at Mikeís place.
Juicy hops, a whole lot there for an APA, somewhat floral. Gently sweet, nice hop balance, very tasty and impressive at 4.5%.
