3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
19.2 oz can partly poured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a copper color with good clarity. The head is a three finger offwhite shade. I really like how much lacing it leaves on the glass in particular, not to mention the fluffiness of the head itself.
S: The aroma is what you’d expect, grassy/piny Cascade hops and caramel malts. Hoppiness is amplified when inhaled directly from the can.
T: This is quite bitter to start. The leafy, herbal hop bitterness really comes through, though perhaps with not as much actual hop flavor as I’d like. Bitterness seems to cool off near the back end, creating something that’s pleasantly drinkable instead of oppressive.
M: While the opening bitterness suggest this could be resiny and harsh, the finish is crisp and dry enough to scrub it away. Nice body and carbonation here, though I still think the back end is a little rough.
O: You know you have something pretty good on your hands when 19.2 oz. seems like the right size for this one. Word of warning though - this one might be too bitter for newbs.

Taste: medium body with caramel malt balanced with resin and fruity hops. Good attenuation and highly drinkable. Very nice balance good association between caramel malt and resin hops. Aftertaste: sweet wet bitterness. Perfect balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pale copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pale and caramel malts, white grapefruit, a bit of kitchen spice and booze. Spicy citrus upfront on the palate, backed by some substantial pale malt flavor. Medium bodied with a solid bitter finish. Very old school APA in terms of the hop-to-malt balance and bitterness level, but with a bit more refinement. Decent.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can pours a clear orange with a two finger sand head and sticky lacing. Aroma is a wonderful floral woodsy citrus. The flavor is excellent and while initially seems quite muted, is actually just right for the style. Mild bitterness and a solid aftertaste finishes very well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color ámbar claro, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media tirando a baja. Aroma a malta, lúpulo por un tubo y resina de pino. Sabor donde se aprecia la malta, pero prevalecen el lúpulo y ese carácter resinoso que ya se intuye a través del olor. Bastante amarga (casi más una IPA que una American Pale Ale, aunque comprendo por qué la catalogan como American Pale Ale). Muy disfrutable y compleja. Toca muchos ángulos interesantes y a la vez es fácil de beber. Pa repetir, desde luego.

12/20 malty but still taste good, slight bitterness, probably a bit too much of the malt taste for me
