16 oz can, thanks Ryan. Lightly hazy amber-yellow; frothy white head; huge lacing. Aroma grapefruit, pineapple, musty florals, bread, pepper. Flavor is similar to aroma, and in addition there might be a hint of pine resin in here as well; finish is pretty dry. Mouthfeel is medium and closer to frothy than to fizzy. Glad that this is a well-regarded beer without being over-the-top bitter; itís actually quite a lot better balanced and a lot less bitter than Iíd expected. This is certainly no 99th percentile beer overall, but a top example in the style for sure.

Poured from a can, pours an orangish tent, small white head. Aroma is citrus, floral, and taste is hoppy, but light. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, shared by Justin at the Craft Beer Festa Kyoto 2015. Smooth malty nose packecd with spicy hops. Light hazy medium straw color. Rich, tangy fruit, light caramel, a bit metallic in mid, great hopping all the way through. Very good balance, even at this high level of hopping.

Havenít had one for a while, but I donít know how it never got a score. One of the better pales around for sure. Big nose of citrus and grass and flowers with a Similar flavor all in a refreshing package.

michaelinwa (629) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Can from trade with jtjager. Pours a moderate head, dense, with nice lacing. Aroma is indistinct and bland. Very little in the way of hop bitterness; this is a pale ale to me, not an American pale ale.
