3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite flavorful APA. Two demerits. First, this was a gusher; not cool. Second, 5.8% ABV for this style is a bit too high.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a near white head of foam leaving behind sheet lacing. The aroma is big inviting Mosiac and Cascade like hoppiness that pulls up the juiciness and mild maltiness. This smells nice. The taste hits with juicy tangelo and clementine malt sweetened hops. It gets resiny with grapefruit like citrus hop bitterness and pine hops to midway. Into the finish the malty base starts to make noise and joins in seamlessly with the citrusy hoppiness. Wow, a fresh glass of this is just delicious. I have been holding off buying this canned at a bottle shop since far too many pales go downhill fast. Fresh is best here.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Vibrant orange, faint amber hue.
Expressive hop nose. Tropical, mellow orange. Clean, not pelletized like a Green Flash.
Mute flavors, body is pale and not much else. A bit of a carbonation wash out on the sides subdues any potential flavors. Sharp hop bitterness, guessing from high bittering addition as no resin/leafy/pellet taste is detectable.
Flavor does not match nose. Would appreciate more definitive taste character.
Would drink again, but nothing to recommend. I would like to try another from the brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Bob’s.
Yellow-orange with a pitted near-white head, IPA-looking pour. Powerful blast of grapefruit zest and Mosaic onion on the nose. Fair bit of mango as well. Flavor lands pretty much in IPA territory, maybe somewhat more quaffable. Damn, this Mosaic thing is just so hard for me to get past. But as I go on with the glass, it mellows a bit (just don’t inhale) and this one starts to make sense.
