3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Light orange amber with an average white head that recedes rapidly to a ring. Early aroma has prevalent pine and tea notes, but after settling its pretty much all toffee with just a hint of hops. Sweet toffee malt, lightly toasted, with bruised peach hop flavours, lightly earthy nuances. Moderately bitter finish. Nice enough.

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!

On draft at the brewery, amber pour, citrusy aroma, and a little sweet and hoppy on the flavor. This is west coast pale ale and it is fairly good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ 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 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.
