3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 9/27/2013. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light caramel, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine/floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hop and pale malt flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale ale. Good balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale, a little bit hazy colour, medium but inconsistant head. Floral and citrusy, explicit aroma. Dry - which stiffens the bitterness, moderately hoppy. Lively carbonation. Good beer, but not at this cost - for god’s sake.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: slightly hazy golden / light amber with a medium sized white head. Very nice looking lacing.
Aroma: malty, fruity, notes of citrus. Refreshing, yet a bit too delicate. Was expecting something more intense tbh.
Taste: mostly citrus, resin and grapefruit. Also a bit floral, with some pine notes in the back. Nice malty base. Pineapple finish. Medium, grassy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable, yet a bit "standard" pale ale I guess. Would be better if the ABV was lower, like 4,5%. Still, worth recommending.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can served cold.
Pours medium amber with a toweriing, frothy, cream colored head. The head is very durable and leaves globs of sticky lacing.
Definitely tastes better than it smelss, with the hop combo proving complex and fruity but slight dank in the nose. The flavor, with a solid grapefruit peel bitterness in the lingering aftertaste. Markedly bitter and hoppy for style, this will work as an IPA.

Poured from a 12oz can. Aroma is pine and caramel. Flavors are pine, citrus, grapefruit, and caramel. Pretty hoppy for a pale. It’s for sure a more aggressive hoppy pale. Solid beer though.
