From a can. Spicy at first, but mellows nicely with a hint of grapefruit. A bit more hop flavor, which prefer-malts finish nicely too.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can from trade. Pours a translucent copper color with a smallish white head that has fair retention. The aroma is mild with sweet malts and some oranges. The taste lightly hoppy with hops that are both bitter with citrus and spicy with white pepper, all set in a biscuit malt base. The palate is medium with lively carbonation. Finishes short and dry. Overall: Nice little ale.

12 oz. can shared by Donnie at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a pale gold, with a small, off-white head. the aroma is bread, pine, and tangerines. Mellow bitterness, with a nice backbone of citrusy sweetness. Light to medium body, creamy, sticky, with some good carbonation. This is a nice, juicy pale ale. Easy to drink and delicious; would probably make a nice beach beer.

Flavorful and refreshing, but the aroma and flavor for linger, which is both good and bad. The bitter hops don't overwhelm, but you're left wanting for savor.

Can thanks to a trade. Pours a near clear earthy orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of grass and earthy citrus with a touch of grain backing. Flavor is similar with a bit more sweet citrus up front and then notes of grass and a grain backbone.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ouncer can provided to me by West By God Virginia (aka Eric): Pours a deep golden hue with a nice lasting frothy head and very good lacework. The aroma has notes of melon, resin, slight grapefruit and pineapple, biscuity and toffee malts with a faint dash of clove. The taste is mildly fruity and bitter below the layers of pale and caramelized malts. The citri character is too short and allows for the "tea baggy" and wheat husk finish to take notice. An okay APA, almost more traditional than the two I had before it. If this was 4.5% ABV I would say it would be very sessionable minus the underwhelming aftertaste and finish.
