12oz can courtesy of Greg G. Dark orange pour, murky clarity with mostly diminishing off-white head. Good lacing. Moderate citrus hop (grapefruit) and lemon on the nose. Heavy bitter dry citrus hop up front with a light dry citrus finish. More malt on the finish once this warmed a bit. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation.

Can from a trade. Solid APA here that reminded me of Dales Pale Ale - good balance of malt and hops.

Now this a good pale ale. Enough hops that they don’t get lost in the malts. Enough malts that the hops don’t overwhelm. Could drink many of these with a variety of foods.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little dark of a beer for me. Has some floral hints and sweetness at the start, but ends with a heavier, stronger lasting hit.

Very nice, hoppy aroma. Crisp, lightly bitter hops, light malt, earthy, pine. A very nice and full finish. Not too bitter or dry, the end of this one is very nice.
