4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not just a great looking can, this pale ale is deserving of a good ol’ 2 thumbs up. If you normally pass over the pale section at your usual swill spot, here is a dare: try it.....
Ya might just find a new brew to enjoy in almost any situation. You will find me handing 6-packs over daily (or pretty close) at Rum River Wine & Spirits in Ramsey. Stop on in an figure out what you may have been missing.

Dark Hazy Orange with a fluffy head. Nose consists of Yeasts, Citrus & Piney Hops, and Malts. Flavor has some sweet yeast and malty notes backed up by sweet oranges and hops. Body is light and as well as the carbonation. A good overall easy to drink Pale Ale

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce can. Pours a fairly hazy orange color with a medium white head. A nice bursting orange and tangerine nose. Very smooth and flavorful: rich citrus, lemons, bitter orange peel, some light biscuit, a bit of bitterness but more smooth fruit. This is a damn good Pale, what a turn, now we have a few world class lower gravity brews like this coming out. Zombie Dust still rules them all, but this is excellent. I could drink a few liters.

Can thanks to a trade! Pours a near clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a combination of citrus and pine with a hint of onion and a grain backbone. Flavor has a light citrus and grass note with a touch of onion and a slightly sweet grain backbone.

In short: A very bitter fruity/citrusy pale APA for hopheads.
How: Can 12oz. Consumed fresh a week after receiving it from oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Clear golden-orange body topped by a persistent small off-white head.
In long: Nose is bright and fresh fruity hops with mandarins coming out strong along with some tropical and exotic fruits. Taste has pleasant honeyed cereals, a lots of hop-related fruity flavors, an assertive citrusy bitterness of medium-high intensity, a sharp citric/lemony bite, a bit resinous in the after-taste. Medium body, a bit oily and with a medium carbonation. Overall clean and polished. Very tasty beer, actually if anything this APA is too much of a palate destroyer to be truly sessionnable, most IPAs are less aggressive than this APA. This is a beer I drank a while ago, I’m slowly entering my backlog, I’ve been sober for 14 days now, not consecutive though, here and there in the past 10 years, still pretty impressive imho.
