4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delicious. Pour was orangey brown, fantastic head and lacing. Aroma of faint grapefruits and caramel. The flavor was citrus, grapefruit and oranges, with hints of caramel. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Well balanced brew. This reminds me a lot of Bells Two Hearted, and thatís a good thing!

12 oz.can. Pours a clear amber color with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet malt, good citrus, and hoppy. The flavor is medium sweet malt, pine, citrus, and earthy. I love the balance of this beer. This is one I could drink all the time if it were more readily available and it happens to come in a can. Awesome!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2008 Pours a clear, red-amber, with a thick, lasting, tan head. Aroma is sweet and roasty. Flavor is balanced sweet (honey and caramel). The Northern Brewer hops are a great complement, giving this a perfectly bitter flavor without the dry, earthy hop flavor of most American Pales (thank you OB). Palate is almost perfect...creamy and smooth. Donít change a thing, this is an excellent Pale Ale.

Pours an orangish yellow, with a white head, aroma of citrusy hops, flavor of citrusy hops with a malty backbone and a nice bitter finish. Pretty good beer in general, but superb for the style.

Whodathunkit? A great beer in a can. I like this even better than Oskarís canned Old Chub. It tastes to me like an IPA and ranks up there with the best of them. A nice value to boot with 12 packs going for 12 bucks around here.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from can. The head was firm long lasting. Floated on my glass like a hockey puck for about 10 minutes. I fond it strong with a lingering after taste. Slightly bitter. I found none of the citrus or flowery qualities other have. I must not have a sophisticated pallet !?

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 Canned - of course. Pretty good maybe not quite as awesome as its reputation might indicate. Amber, hops etc, well balanced. I like it, don?t get me wrong.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 Pours amber with a slight haze. Fluffy off white head that slowly settles to some becoming islands. Picture esque thick lacing. Nice fresh piney hop aroma with notable hints of mace. Crisp and refreshing beer. well balanced between hops and malt. very nice indeed! This definitely will be with me on my next trip to the beach
