355ml can. Pours a clear amber with a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, grapefruit and pine. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit, orange, pine and grass with a dry, bitter, hop resin finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice.

Amber color. Smell of hops, caramel, pine, bread and sweet honey. Taste of hops, pine, malt, citrus, caramel and a wonderful bitternes at the end. I like this a lot. Very refreshing. Thanks to brewblackhole.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
light brown color with thin white lacing, mild hop aroma, not very strong, little tones of malt as well. nothing remarkable about the flavor either, a decent balance of grassy hops and sweet malts, but the whole thing just seemed a little weak. body is light and clean, finish is crisp and nothing lingering behind to sour your palate. what there is of this brew is good, but the flavors were a bit muted, and could use a little boost.

Great pale ale, although the sheer amount of hops push it pretty close to a full-on IPA. Clean, crisp, light malt profile gives it a bit of grain taste, but mostly it’s just a backdrop to a lot of resiny, piney, dank hops. Really good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: small white head that diminishes almost instantly, good lacing, clear golden-yellow color. Aroma: floral, resin, grass, faint malty bread smell. Palate: light body, thin and dry texture almost wine-like, average carbonation, light bitter finish that is rather short lived given the style. Taste: fruity sweetness at the front, followed by orange rind bitterness on the back end. Overall, very refreshing beer and different; the feel is really nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden with a white head that rapidly dissipates. The aroma is more subtle, but it is enticing. Pine, grapefruit, lemon, and grass. It seems to be more along the line of a mild IPA, only better than your lower grade ones. Taste is quite bitter throughout. Mostly grapefruit with some milder pine. There is a little bit of a soapy taste in there as well, especially at the end. Outside of this, while more simple, its actually pretty tasty. This one is crisp and refreshing. Light in body, with a good amount of lively carbonation. I have to say I enjoyed this. It is mostly straightforward and not very complex, but that is ok. Its a great session beer.
