12oz can. Pours a clear orange with a thin off-white head. Nice strong smell of pine and citrus with some malt sweetness noticeable. Taste is pine, pine, pine with a hint of citrus. Yummy! Mouthfeel is medium with a good bitter aftertaste. Much like an IPA. Would have liked it a tad sweeter though it is still definitely the best pale I’ve had. Glad it is finally available in Texas.

deep amber pour with a thin white head up top. citrusy hop scent on the nose that is real promising. wow that’s incredibly smoother than i was expecting. the hops are just as smooth in the flavor. i can say that i’m pretty happy that we get this in tx now.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a filtered liquid gold color. Looks fantastic in the glass. The head is medium bodied with a small amount of lacing that lingers. The aroma is of pine, hops, with a touch of citrus. The mouthfeel is medium sharp with a decent amout of carbonation. Flavor is very hoppy for only a pale ale (i.e. not an IPA). The finish has the sting of bright hop flavors unlike anything I have had. Great beer!

Pours copper with rocky off-white head. Aroma is a tried and true combination of pale malt and citrus hops with some great caramel and butter toffee notes also coming through. Flavor has great bitterness for a pale ale in the form of grapefruit hoppiness balanced with some caramel malts. Smooth, full body. One of the best pales I’ve ever had.
