Flowery hops in the aroma. Taste starts flowery, with some metallic funk in the finish. OK at best.

Straight outta the can on the 4th of July. Solid balance of bitter hops and sweet malts. A real nice pale ale. San Tan is becoming my favorite AZ brewery!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 @ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Dank hoppy aroma with some earthy leafy bitterness and some earthy toffee and some slight funky vegetal tone. Flavor was a little more tame and nuanced; some nice sweet pale malt starts the taste melding into some floral and slightly piney hop tones with medium bitterness, pretty subdued and balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours copper with visible rising carbonation. Small foamy tan head with foamy lacing.
Aroma: Classic cascade like dry hop aroma. A little fruity with very light caramel.
Taste: Hoppy bite out of the gate. Resinus pine and citrus combo. Dry pale malt, earthy notes. Finishes with quick bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, juicy. High side of medium carbonation.
Overall: A solid American Pale Ale, very close to a SNPA clone, which is nothing but a compliment. This was my first SanTan beer, and hope they have another Pale like this in regular rotation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a snifter. Amber colored with a half inch of white head and quickly faded to the edges.
First rye bread, then lighter wet malt smell.
Hoppy, very nice. malt backup that balances the bitterness well.
Bubbly, moderate carbonation with a medium and crisp body.
Not super great looking or amazing smell, but the taste makes up nicely. At 5.5% this is a great session beer with flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice amber coloring with a thick head of off white foam. Cascade hop aroma is strong with citrus and floral character. Medium body has good carbonation and a noticeable dry hop flavor. Citrus is slightly balanced with caramel but the hops win out in the finish. Best when very cold.
