Just nothing spectacular or noteworthy here. Golden color, meh. Slight tangerine and honey nose, eh. Nondescript citrus tartness, hmmm. Average in every way. Skip.

650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a generous white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some tropical fruits and grains. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, a tasty brew that must be sampled.

It has a lovely rich peachy golden colour that I have come to associate with many APAs, a pillowy cream coloured head and a touch of haze. The aroma is of spices first with garam masala and Sichuan peppers. It is gorgeously aromatic, like incense in a glass. Coupe this with fruity peaches and dessert maltiness. The flavour begins with a mellow sweetness that takes in spice and pepper. It is much more mellow than I expected with green pine lingering on the bitter finish.
Maybe a touch of oxidised character? Otherwise, a tasty devil.

12 oz can poured on national beer can appreciation day. I do indeed appreciate the canned beer world. Pours golden with a huge foamy head. Ton of hops on the aroma. Nice hoppy, super flavorful beer that I can probably drink all day. Great beer.

This is one of my favorite San Diego style pale ales, basically an IPA everywhere else in the world... Definitely seek this one out!

Can in Seattle. Had some problems .. had the tab break and then it poured with a gushing head. Still a tasty ale. Hoppy mishmash nose, body is sweeter grain and green hops.

Tap at Backyard Bottle Shop. Pours lightly hazy amber with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus, fruity, and herbal hops with apple esters and pale malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Quite flavorful APA. Two demerits. First, this was a gusher; not cool. Second, 5.8% ABV for this style is a bit too high.

Can. Pours a clear amber color with a very large froth off-white head, despite a light and easy pour. Nose is definitely hop forward and grassy with a bit of floral notes coming through. Taste is actually pretty fresh and light, and only slightly bitter with some crispness to it. Solid drinkable beer.
