4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can @ home. Pours in golden and produces a nice off white head. The aroma is hoppy but malts are present too. Th flavor is nice with floral hops nicely balanced by this beer’s malt backbone. Finish is hoppy and slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium with a nice amount of carbonation. Highly drinkable. This beer’s strength is its balance. This is a sure fire winner anytime and a wonderful example of what an excellent APA can be. Really nice!

12oz can. This a hell of a Pale Ale. At first sip it seems a little bit like an IPA, but after a few sips you realize this is just a top notch APA. Cloudy orange-brown color. Light floral and hoppy aroma. Sandy dry but sweet mouthfeel. Truly classic, quality beer.

Out of can into pint glass. Deep golden color with nice off white head that is pretty steady. Citrus smell primarily, but piney also. Sweet, hoppy, but malt also in there. Nice balance for a western pale ale. Dry finish, but full feel initially. I love this beer.

Cloudy, orange color. Minimal head. Great hoppy taste, not over-the-top and not too sweet. One of the best pale ales I have had. Just an all around good beer.

Great pale in a can. Everything a good pale ale should be. Great hoppy flavor with just enough bitter to round it out.
Apearance? The can looks great!

Thanks to JVD for this one
Can poured into a pint glass produced a off white head on top of a clear pale orange body
Aromas of crisp malts and a light floral hops note
Flavors are the same as the nose malt up front followed by a hop bitter good balance on this brew. Medium body good carbonation on the tongue
Highly drinkable, I could see me knocking back a few of these. great brew all and all
