3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, burnt orange. Thick and creamy, bright white head. A tropical fruit aroma - pineapple with a grassy cameo. Slight citrus taste as well as some straw and grass notes. Very light and crisp, taste doesn’t linger for long. Would suit a hot summers day as a quick thirst quencher before something a little heavier.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a can with a best by date of 04/14/2016.
Aroma is fairly malty with toasted bread, cracker, biscuit and lighter caramel. Moderate hop notes of pine resin, grapefruit, wood and floral. Smell quite a bit like Sierra Nevada Pale.
Pours a hazy, copper color with a medium sized, thick white head that recedes quickly to a thin film that lingers. Moderate lacing and small legs.
Flavor is somewhat sweet with toasted bread and cracker. Faint caramel. Moderate bitterness with moderate hop notes. Hops are classic grapefruit and pine with a touch of wood.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty decent pale ale and very "classic American." Easy drinking with balanced bitterness, malt and hop profiles. That being said, America seems to have moved towards fruitier hopped pale ales with a lot of hop aroma and flavor and less malt.
