Thanks Scott. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a light foamy lacing sticking around the sides of the glass decently. The smell had a semi - sweet malty citrus over top of a light piney bitter hops. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to blend nicely. A dry sweet citrus aftertaste leads to a decent sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation good for the style and for me as it’s not too sharp. Overall, I say this was a decent APA that I could have again.

Light orange color, crown of haystack lace. Aroma is chlorine hops. There is an alkaline, metallic component to the aroma. Some cooked vegetable/broccoli. Flavor is very soft hops; it’s from a can so they should be relatively well-preserved. There is a touch of perfume, but it’s a little too pillowy. The yeast is front-and-center. Feels soft and pillowy. It’s not an unpleasant beer, but it is a very weak beer.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought dough, bread, slight caramel into a bit of yeast, touch of grass and floral notes, touch of orange peel as well. Taste was a mix of orange, red fruit, some floral notes into a bit of biscuit, caramel, slight dough, hints of spice, finishing bitter.

Drinkable enough but many hoppier, crisper APA’s out there. Too much graininess, grass on the back end. Not bad

Pours a clear coppery amber color with just off-white head. Citrus, floral notes, and a little grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice balanced malt profile, but not too much. Good amount of hops for a pale ale.

12oz can@ trailer. Clear amber color with ivory head. Tropical fruit, passion fruit, melon, citrusy aromas. Light bodied with average carbonation. Fruity, citrus, tropical fruit, lightly sweet pale malt flavors with a mild polycarbonate taste to finish---not too bad.

Brilliant clear copper with a foamy sticky white head. Really nice nose of bright floral resins, a bit of sweetness, and a nice subdued grapefruit/orange rind tone. The flavor is really swell with a bright floral bitterness right up front that isnt offensive and is in fact kinda flavorful, followed by a load of caramel and biscuit malt, finishing with a bit of biscuity toffee and pale malt with a flavorful grassy and floral hop tones. Really nice. Quaffable and complex at the same time.

Clear orange, off-white frosty lasting, lacing foam head. Great hoppy aroma, somewhat less bitter in taste, but still a very good beer. Light citrus tones. Lasting aftertaste, some roast. (Velp 201502)

(Nebraska Cardinal Pale Ale) Can 355 ml at home, from a trade with vipinvelp, served into a tulip, ABV 6% Oh it’s one of those cans that you can remove the whole top part, cool! Crystal clear body, golden orange in colour. Long lasting thick head on top, slghtly off-white in colour, leaving heavy lacing behind. Aroma has light citrus, lots of flowers in there, jasmin, rose petals, maybe a bit of fresh clove on the back. Taste has caramel malts, hops, again quite floral, but not as much as on the aroma, more citrus now though. Mildly bitter aftertaste with a long duration. Medium thin body, carbonation goes on the lower side. Quite good, surely very drinkable, I could drink this the whole day.
