Bottle shared by Oros. Pours orange gold with a nice beige head and a toffee and citrus aroma. There is a nice pale malt flavor with slight hop bitterness. Not much citrus and too little malt, however, a decent session beer.

Can from trade. Has a orange burnt color. Off white head. Taste starts out kind of hoppy with a malty dry finish. Feels like its missing something.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a can received from pepsiedcan. Thanks! The beer pours a lighter copper color with a nice white head of sticky foam. The aroma is kind of grassy and herbal, while remaining somewhat sweet. The taste is grassy bitterness at first, but that moves on toward a subtle sweetness in the finish. I expected much less.

Not bad not bad. This pale ale is a clear golden with a nice and gentle head. Smells of hops (expected) but I’m not sure of which varietal it is. Taste is malty but not overly so with some nice flavors of citrus and grass. Not quite bitter but that’s ok for an APA. A decent one for sure!

Pours a dark amber with a white head. Surprisingly good IPA with good hop characteristics. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Not bitter but nice and hoppy.

16 ounce can courtesy of pepsican. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus hops. The taste is citrus hops, herbal notes, caramel malts. Medium bodied. Pretty generic but well made.

Nice pale. Pours pretty dark. Has a nice amount of hoppiness. Not a very fruity pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a pint sized can. There are notes of citrus, spice, mint, bread. A tasty pale ale, it seems as there may be Citra hops in this. Solid pale ale.

Very nice version of the style. Pours pale amber with a small head. The aroma has a malt base with a hint of citrus and pine. The flavor follows with a very nice balance. Very easy drinking.
