Orange yeast aroma. One finger head on top of a hazy yellow body with a tinge of amber. Peppery smooth on the tongue. Touch of sourness with a clean finish that is refreshing. This one is nice surprise and would be glad to have again.

For a beer labeled as an "extra pale ale" this one is very smooth yet full of flavor. Would taste good in the afternoon hanging out on the deck.

I love this beer on a hot summer day or evening, it really quenches my thirst at a super reasonable cost. It’s a very fresh, light, and simple pale ale that goes down smooth one after another and leaves the palate clean and citrusy.

Pours a hazy yellow and smells of hops and some citrus. This malty apa is very smooth with hints of citrus and not very bitter , one of my favorite ales ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thin head with not much lacing. Thin watery body, lightly bitter, average carbonation with a watery finish.

Had this on tap and liked it, however, when I bought a 6 of cans, it was disappointing. I guess, as advertised, it is an American Pale Ale, not really a style I’m in love with. Bland and mediocre, it is one jump ahead of the many mass produced American Adjunct brews, being more full bodied and flavorful than most.
