Thanks BOLTZ7555 for the brew. Pours a clear cooper from the can. Almost no head or carbonization. A little citrus hoppy aroma and some bitterness. A solid American Pale Ale. I have just been spoiled by fresh Alpha King.

It comes from a can and tastes amazing. Hoppy but in a very clear and crisp way. A great portable beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Not too heavy on the carbonation. Aroma is of hops, some citrus, and an earthy note I can’t quite put my finger on. Taste is bitter hops up front, with citrus and grass to follow. Hoppiness dies quickly, leaving a bland taste in the mouth. Tasty, but lacking something to really make it something to drink again..

can - Pours lightly hazy copper with a fluffy, two finger head. It has a good citrus hop aroma and tastes moderately hopped with light citrus and pine notes. This ale is a tasty example of the style.

Can. Pours a dark copper color with large white, frothy head. Aromas of hops, citrus, and more hops. Lively carbonation and a surprisingly softer hop aftertaste when considering the smell of the brew. Unfortunately the only taste is hops, and even for a hop-head like me something else is needed.

Pours a copper color with a relatively thin white head. Plentiful aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste is also very hoppy, balanced with toasted malt. Turns a bit sour at the finish, with reminders of grapefruit. This is a nice, complex beer with a broad character. Not perfectly balanced, but diverse. Reminds a bit of Stoudt’s American Pale Ale, but not as well balanced. I’m also not a fan of anything in a can....

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz. from the brewery, canning date 10/2/08. Fresh, fruity and sweet aroma, citric and lightly malty, with notes of pine, orange, toasty biscuit and toffee. Clear medium amber color with a lasting, fine head. Flavor profile clearly shows the balance that this beer is known for, with prominent but not overwhelming hoppiness, bringing a good dosage of spicy bitterness, pine and citrus flavor, blended with a gently sweet, toasty, honeyish maltiness that helps round things out nicely. Amply carbonated but not overly so, palate is smooth and a tad oily, body is medium. Certainly one of the better examples of this style one is likely to run across.
