3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a golden color and leaves the same color body. With a one inch foamy white head, there is a nice spider webbed lacing speckling the pint glass. Some light carbonation is seen slowly rising. The smell has a good combination between the malts and the hops. The taste is even between the malts and hops. I would say this is very drinkable. The palate is about a light to medium with a good crispness lingering about it. There is nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, this is a decent brew, standard and solid, but for the price, I’m not sure if I would have come back to it.

Draft. Pours orange with a slight haze. Thick white head lingers over heavy carbonation and distinct hop aroma. It's a pale ale with a decent hop bite, a bit more color and a nice caramel flavor.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale copper with a bit of haze. Large white head. Rocky, foamy and not receding. Aroma or banana and peach. Eatery for an APA, but not unpleasant. Palate is a little slick and appropriately creamy. Bitterness is very muted, but does show up enough in the finish to balance. maybe slightly simplistic and boring, but pleasant enough. Stuck somewhere between big, juicy and fruity and clean and crisp.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
24 oz can into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark amber body with two fingers of fluffy white foam. Aroma is heavy on the English hop varietals, floral and sweet caramel malts. Taste is similar with some pine and floral hops and a large caramel malt backbone. Lightly sweet and bitter. Mouth feel is light to medium and easy drinking, which is great given the large size of the can. Probably less of an APA and more of an English style IPA. Overall this was pretty decent.
