3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can poured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a reddish copper color with top notch clarity for the style. This features one of the best heads I’ve ever seen on a pale ale - three fingers high, with an offwhite shade. The retention level and fluffy texture is quite excellent, and so is the lacing left behind on the glass.
S: Tons of bready, caramel malts, grapefruit, and floral notes on the aroma. This one really reeks of Centennial hops, even though this seems to be primarily a Cascade-hopped ale.
T: It’s a rather typical pale ale, with citrusy, lemongrass hop flavors backing up a clean malt undercurrent. The malts also seem to develop a nutty, earthy tone after a while, balanced by the hops. No extreme flavors here, just a simple, easy to drink pale ale.
M: Very clean and dry on the finish and aftertaste. Has that crisp, refreshing texture that would make it great on a hot day, only with a body that could stand to be less flabby.
O: It is what it is - a well crafted, basic pale ale in a can. Really, it’s just another SNPA clone, but that just means SNPA is such a great beer to ape. Damnit, I need to buy more canned craft beers ASAP!

(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr")
A- Grapefruit, tangerines, juicy, subtle caramel, subtle hops.
A- Orange color, hazy liquid, off white head.
T- Juicy, citrus, caramel, bitter, malty.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.
O- At first smell, I got everything I expected and more. Lots of juicy tropical citrus fruits. Then on the palate I got more of the same with a decent malt backbone. Balanced out well. Enjoyed this quite a bit.

Hazy, dark orange colour. Well balanced Pale Ale with enough malt presence to stand up to a fairly strong, bitter hop flavour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Blue Mountain / Afton VA --- Clear light mahogany amber, ivory head, sheets of lace. Taste is a bit of malt that is quickly passed by medium hops. The hops maintain control through the finish. A decent light entry APA, especially for hopheads.

Serves in a can. Nice taste. Great with a burger. Smooth taste with a pleasant aftertaste. Subtle and does not affect the taste of the fruit. Safe social beer for mixed company.
