Sample at Green Man. Pours a copper-orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily Short strings of lace. Floral hops, malt and fruit in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and toasted malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home mid-week and needing this, but enjoying the nice summer weather! Good pale ale for this one, goes down with a great crisp finish, slightly hoppy, good stuff!

jgb9348 (5096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2015
Crisp copper coloured body with a thick, five centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of metal, light hops, crisp nutty malt and a bit of resin - nice. Medium-bodied; Grassy and nutty hop flavours coupled with some decently strong malt flavours and ending with a little nuttiness, but a good shaped malt backbone. Aftertaste shows some light caramelised sugar sweetness and a touch from fruit, but the malt still overpowers the hops throughout. Overall, a decent APA with a large nuttiness and a touch of resinous bitterness at the end. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia on 28-March-2015 for US$1,99 (received into Total Wine on 04-March-2015) sampled at home in Washington on 14-June-2015.

unclemike (2547) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Pale amber with a tight creamy white head. The nose is quite piny but with a distinct note of caramel and toffee on the back. It’s not really sweet – in fact the bitterness here is quite assertive. A bit of tropical juiciness on the back but with a sort of muddy/yeasty quality that I could probably do without. Quite woody on the finish. An okay pale ale.

Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Aroma of bright flowery hops. Taste has some hints of grain, a little cereal. Flowery hops and grass, a little citrus. Light mouth, easy drinking. No lace.
