Can from whole foods Chattanooga. Pours apricot with an inch of white foam. Massive pine on the nose. The Pine is pretty forward on the tongue and it lingers a bit. It’s got some stank to it. I like it.

jkwood04 (3848) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Big can. Looks pale/amber. Aroma of a good amount of floral and lightly citrusy hops plus a little bit of pale malts. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops for a pale ale. Average texture. A decent beer.

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Heyyy, a little bit of Texas made available in Chicago! Can’t complain. Has a great, piney aroma true to the name, with some good zesty citrus and bitter hops to seal the deal. Solid!

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Poured from tall boy can into glass mug. Pours a clear golden with a thick fluffy white head. Leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with notes of pineapple and citrus. The majority of the taste is upfront and hoppy. Average carbonation with a clean mouthfeel. Overall a really good beer especially during the summer by the pool since its clean, not too heavy, and comes in a can.

Steverus0 (158) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - APR 26, 2013
Now this is a sweet pale ale hat satisfies. The lack of filtering helps to prevent the lack of flavor so common in other pales that try to balance their hoppy bitterness with malty sweet. This achieves well with a beautiful pour into the glass and a thick malty head. Definitely floral forward, the hops are pleasantly present and song of spring ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy orange copper pour. Medium off white head with mild lacing. Aroma is pretty heavy on pine aroma. Malt sweetness is fairly noticeable in the aroma as well. Flavors aren't quite as pronounced. Still on the piney side with reasonable malt backbone. ---Rated via iPhone

maxwelldeux (3539) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2013
Draught. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is just a little bit hoppy (as is the taste), and ends up being an OK beer. Nothing special, but decent.

Patrickctenchi (3556) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Can: Pours very cloudy orange-brown with a craggy, tan head. Scent is very bright pine....spicy citrus... maybe a little sharp coconut/pineapple? Nice, creamy soft, buttery bitter. Very smooth.... Quite tasty.

Sweet pine and citrus aroma, brownish gold pour. Toasty crystal flavor with citrusy to pine hop that gets a bit sharp at the end but is not rough. Very drinkable. Relatively simple palate on first glance but hop and toasted malt characters give this some intrigue. Would buy again. Up near some of the better IPAs.
