3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 month old. Pours a beautiful orange with slight haze and a thick head with lots of sudsy lacing. Aroma is pungent dry hop, pine. Taste is again is a slightly tart malt with again pungent hop presence dominating, almost an unpleasant off bitterness in the finish. Not impressed with this one given some hype behind it, will not seek out again.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 S: Pretty weak but has great things going on: sweet grapefruit and orange lined with zesty lemon hop build balanced with a big malt character
A: Perfect pale ale appearance - deep amber with a beautiful full 2 finger+ frothy head
T: Fantastic - very malty and citrus hoppy with slighter pine notes
P: Thick for a pale ale, but I loves it that way
O: Really quite lovely.

Smells like hops and citrus. Appearance is what I would expect a pale ale to look like, coppery color with a nice white head. The taste is quite hoppy with a slight malt aftertaste. Overall a solid beer. Good for walking the dog and grilling outside.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear orange amber with a very thin white head. Strong citrus hop aroma. Beautiful hop flavor with a bit of an earthy flavor on the finish. Not quite as high drinkability as some pale ales, but a very good beer nonetheless.

really good beer for a can. a little hoppy for my taste but I’m not a huge fan of hops to begin with. flavors here are a bit watered down and evolve in your mouth as if running down a spiral slide. floral hops, pine and citrus. not a bad everyday beer.

I had this poured from a can... a can?!? into a pint glass. It is surprisingly hoppy with malty. I tried a little from the can but it doesn’t work, it MUST be poured into a glass. Something about the aluminum flavor just doesn’t work with this beer.

beautiful herbal tea orange pour loaded with tiny bubbles, small white head. Caramel and grapefruit aroma. Long lasting hoppy bitterness, a great beer. I love the can and will often crack one as I summit one of the local peaks - you should see the looks of envy on the faces of fellow hikers!

Light amber color with an off white head. Sweet malt and hops aroma with some grapefruit mixed in. Sweet pine hoppy flavor. Nice balance of bitterness. Finishes with a hint of grapefruit. A top notch pale ale....even if it is from a can.

I thought this was really great for a basic american pale. Probably a little less watery than most of its kind. The taste was smooth and hoppy and not too big to the point where i couldnt finish the sixpack. Brownie points for cans, if its really better doesnt matter I just like it.
