COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Regionally grown American pale malt is blended with rich European malts to produce a lighter bodied beer, bright in color, with a taught white head that keeps track of time as you sip. Then there are the hops – four pounds per barrel to be exact. Willamettes, Cascades, CTZ and Summits give this brew a citrus punch and spicy character that greets you in the nose and embraces your mouth with a clean, crisp bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Can to solo cup at tailgate. A firm bitterness with a very grassy hop flavor. I think I say on this can too long in the rot box. Watery finish. Shoulda drank fresher. Please send me more. ---Rated via intercellular device Rerate with fresh can thanks to CLevar. cracked open to an immediate hop nose. drinking from the can. Mostly the cascade-y grapefruit in the nose. not much spicy, a little grassy. Initially the beer is a little thin and watery. Would like to see a little more malt in this, just doesn’t have much body to it. Hop profile keeps the beer together and the bitterness is a little much given the lack of balancing malt. Seems to linger with an almost astringent drying. Good, but would like just a touch more of specialty malt. Bumped rating up 2 points aroma and 2 points.

Can of this garbage juice @ a BBQ, courtesy of the Hoff. Thanks, bro. Clear orange pour with a white head. Solid grapefruit and orange hop aromas. Hints of green melon, bread, and grass. Flavor is sweet up front with some fruit and malt notes. Grapefruit, grass, orange, and melon follow. Light to moderate bitterness. Not a bad pale ale.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Can: Half murky copper pipe color with a slowly settling creamy top. Nice walls of lacing at the top. Aroma is pretty nice. Some pungent hops, ashy and herbal citrus peel, deeper grapefruit flesh, too. Leafy and juicy. Taste is much more abundantly bitter... Almost tongue scraping. Herbaceous, lots of white pepper and leaves. Very peely and pithy citric character. Dry finish, understated malt with a touch of toast, pretty nice. Not as drinkable or balanced as many pale ales but still tasty.

GuamVice (68) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2013
From can. Light amber with frothy white head. Awesome hop aroma. Citrus and lots of hop musk. Taste starts with a light malt and frothy mouthfeel and ends with more spice and a more moderate bitter finish. It's not quite as malty as a Midwest pale ale but also more aggressive than most US pal ales. Nice to try this great beer out of Minnesota thanks to my future sister in law. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with some fruit. Flavor of grapefruit hops and sweet malt. Quite bitter all the way through the finish.

355mL can thanks to BSchnab! Cloudy deep orange. Thick, rocky yellowish foam. Webby lace. Nose off the bat is bright citrus hops, fresh grapefruit, candied orange, mild butterscotch. Taste is a bit dusty, moving to heavy paper. Abrasive palate. Hmm, not my style of APA.

Draft. Light copper with small white head. Strong aroma of citrus and pine hops. Medium body with pine and citrus hops upfront and a nice balance of malt sweetness.
