I got this from Publix in Florida. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, caramel. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again.

Disclaimer, not a Pale Ale guy. Never understood the purpose. Why not have an Ipa instead? After trying a few of the "industry standard" APA's while not bad just didn't quite whet my whistle I decided to give this one a go.... Wow! Perfect balance of right amount of hops with a sweet bready malt base and a touch of orange citrus on the nose and tounge. And all at a 5% abv clip so you can have a few. My new benchmark for the style. Well done CCB!!!

Can, Whole Foods, Orlando. Lightly oily pine aroma, juicy, with a faint bread nose and taste. Tasty & refreshing on the palate, some lemon and pine comes into the taste midway, with a little sweetness and hay in the finish. Tasty.

Poured from a 12 ounce can, thanks to Homer321. The aroma is juicy hops with a light bready malt note. The flavor has a great balance between the grapefruity hoppiness and the bready maltiness. Tasty beer.

Canned throughout the area. Pours a little cloudy with a soapy head. A lot of citrus and resin in the aroma and flavor. Nice dry finish. Maybe my favorite session beer these days.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy honey color with a very thin head but luscious aromas of tropical fruit (mango and orange), nectarine/apricot and a bit of honey. Flavor is a thing of beauty, especially for a 5%. Amazing beer.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can. Canned 5/29 (28 days ago). Appearance: deep golden, hazy, with a frothy white head.
Aroma: Hop punch in the face. Grassy, resinous, pine,lemon, grapefruit.
Taste: Light bready malt, quickly giving way to a crisp bitterness, punctuated by a strong grapefruit citrus flavor. Resinous pine flavor in the background, but present.
Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.
Finish: Very dry, sticky resin on the tongue. Bitterness lingers long past the finish.
Overall: A very hop forward pale ale. Amazing aroma. Malt character is light, allowing the hops to take over and shine. A top notch APA.
