Always a treat. Amber with nice white head. Citrus hop aroma. Creamy and soft on the tongue with hops following close behind to spice things up. Dry and citrusy flavor. Nice and clean.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can: Aroma had a nice grassy/hoppy aroma, citrus, light caramel malt notes, and that’s about it. Poured a golden/ lightly amber pour with a fluffy white head that diminishes into a soapy white film. Taste is almost chewy. Hops and a melding of flvors makes this brew really interesting to me. Nicley carbonated and has a nice mouthfeel. Overall, I like this stuff. Would like it more if I could get it regularly in Michigan. Cheers!!

Nice find, thanks to BFC. Very nice example of what a Pale Ale should be. Nice yellow color. Armoa is copper and hops. Flavor is nice and bitter, with a tart, dry finish. Solid malt backbone allows the hops to shine. Different hop flavors swirl around and come in and out. ABV is perfect for this one. All around great taste, and very refreshing. Perfect fishing beer!

Draft at Mad Mex (Monroeville). Pours a medium amber, no real head to speak of. Aroma is semi-sweet, hoppy. Flavor is a nice, mild hop profile some touches of floral and pine.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very nice dark amber in color, with a nice two inches of pillowy head. Very hoppy on the nose, the smell is very inviting and is a great start. Taste is very hoppy, but much more balanced than the nose lets on. Good hop bitterness, but enough malt to keep it together. This is a very easy drinking, solid beer.

Golden orange with a fluffy offwhite head. Cant wait for this beer from a can. Citrusy hoppy and sweet malt aromas. bursting with flavor! pale malt and awesomely hoppy, little bit of bitterness on the tongue. Very bold and flavorful APA, extremely enjoyable!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
As mentioned over and over, a total suprise based on it being from a can. Pours a fluffy golden orange. Smells very hoppy, but doesn’t out do the equal parts of malt. Depending on the can, it can be really hoppy or almost too malty. Either way, it’s a delight and a treat.

I loved this beer. Excellent head, great mouthfeel and nice citrusy bitterness. Very fresh, tended more to the IPA category.

Dale’s pale pours a nice toasted amber. Aroma is of nice bright hops. Taste is dominated by big citrus hops, and very balanced smooth malt. This beer is a great example of why you shouldn’t judge book by it’s cover. Big beer in a small can, Dig it!!!
