4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 16 oz can poured into a tulip glass. Color was golden with just a little haze with a solid white 2 finger head. Aroma was superb with grapefruit up front followed by nice piney notes and a hint of grass. Taste is hop forward of just a hint of sweetness then dominated by the pine notes. Mouthfeel was nice and light as I expected and carbonation was not overwhelming. A VERY solid pale ale.

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.
