Pours a hazy orange with good head and lacing. Aroma is floral, dank citrus, piney hops after pouring, with more biscuit malt coming out further down the glass. Taste is more pine and grass than citrus, along with some honey bready malts to balance. This APA has balance absolutely mastered, waking a great line between malts and hops. The bitter finish comes around, making sure the hops are never forgotten. Easy to drink, sessionable, leaves you wanting more.

Aroma is great, big upfront pine and citrus hop delight. Pale in color with a white lingering head. Tatse and mouthfeel is where this one takes a turn downward for me, I love hop forward beers but this one just is more abrasive feeling than smooth and balanced to me....almost with a metallic hint to it as well. Still a good beer, but just not my favorite pale. And really this tastes more like an IPA.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz can. Super light in color, some medium yellow with a light orange hue, sticky off-white head with some deep resin aromas. Very impressive hop presence, that blends really well. A great, great pale, one of the finest.

Can... Hazy amber pour with a huge, rocky, white head. Great retention. The olfactory highlights are west coast grapefruit with light pine and a touch of tangerine. Light to medium-bodied with vibrant carbonation. The well-balanced flavor leans only a fraction toward the bitter side of balance. The lengthy finish is crisp, lightly bitter, astringent and dry. Great canned beer to take to the Daytona 500. Can courtesy of BVery!

Can - fair size thick head, clear medium copper color, very nice big grapefruit hop aroma and flavor, mild malt backbone, really could easy pass as an IPA - very good overall

Fresh Can shared by Bill with a bunch of heads. Orange-gold pour with medium head/lace. Notes of dry dankness, Citrus fuel, insanely rez’y pine needle, herbal tang, and creamy pale malting. This is one of the best pales I have tried in a long time. Cheers.

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.
