Pours a deep clear amber with lots of carbonation and a thin white head that lingers as a ring for while leaves a little bit of delicate lacing. The smell is dominated by pine (no surprise) and dark caramel malts. There’s some citrus but only as an accent. The taste has the earthy hops up front with some pine and grassy tones, but malts play just as big a role with caramel malts forming a big backbone int he taste. There’s a pine hop bitterness that lingers in the finish and leaves a pleasant aftertaste. I always enjoy good craft beer in a can and this is no exception. Very good pale.

Can. Thanks to MaltOMeal for including this as an extra. Pours dark copper color with a huge white head that has great retention and lacing. Smell is strong malts with some piney hops underneath. Definitely more malty than hoppy though it’s a good type of malt. Reminds me somewhat of Dale’s. Taste is smooth, slightly bitter, grainy with some biscuit notes and subtle hop flavor. Very easy drinking. I really like canned beers for some reason and this is one of the better ones I’ve had. An excellent Pale Ale.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2009 Beautiful medium amber color with a slight reddish tint; beige colored head is thick and frothy. Aroma is of caramel, pine, oranges, and fresh hops with a malty accent. Flavor is light and malty with a hint of tropical fruits (pineapple and papaya), grapefruit, grass, and a bitter hop bite. Beautifully balanced.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Wow...only 64 ratings...Great appearance, ruby copper with a light tan head (thick). Aroma is hops, barley and malts. Very pleasant, nicely balanced. Flavor isn’t all there, a little weak in malts and hops. Has a thin body with a nice bitter end. Starts off great...flavor disappoints slightly but definitely a good brew. 65 ratings now :)
