From can which immediately leaked all over my kitchen. Nicely aromatic, smooth, but an odd ish finish. Maybe it’s heavy pine?

Itzjerm (1389) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2014
An average session beer. Definitely a pale ale with a very light hop bite. Good mouthfeel for abv and little to no head.

EithCubes (5085) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle PKG ON 07/21/14. Nose is strongly citrussy with just-as-heavy pine, lighter spice, medium-strong caramel and a little earth. Pours very, very pale yellow nearing clear with abundant carbonation and a rocky right white head. Taste medium-strong bitter and very soapy, light but lasting resin, good citrus still up the middle, body is watery but cleansing, some of the pine and caramel intensity has been robbed. Off-dry, crisp but somewhat smooth, juicy texture. Solid.

Paincane (168) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Golden body with a frothy white head & nice lace. Citrusy and floral nose. Fruit, malt backbone and pine flavors end moderately hoppy.

amber color; citrusy grapefruit hop aroma; citrusy, grapefruit hop flavor on a light malt base; this beer is all about the hops; light and sessionable

emacgee (4134) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Pours a sharp and crystal clean straw blonde with two fingers of white head. Very pretty and unassuming. The aroma is a little skunky and grassy with notes of citrus rind and hay. Very dry and light bodied in the mouth. Citrus rind and a grassy bitterness. Very little malt interference and very easy to drink on. Nice

fiulijn (15210) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Tasting at Matt’s, can
Hazy blond color, small head. The aroma is a bit citrusy, not bad. But the flavor is too dry, with just some crispy malt, and later a light citrus character. Extremely dry final, a bit papery.

mcberko (7043) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
473mL can, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is dull, with biscuity malt and feint floral hops. Flavour brings out dry crackery malt and some mild resinous hops. Nothing special, but still quite drinkable. Very dry palate. Decent.

PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Atlanta, Ga - Hop City - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, quickly fading off-white head. Aroma has a slight spruce bent to it, bit not well pronounced. Flavor is standard pale ale, some light citrus bitterness, a touch of brief cake mix, some white grape juice. Mouthfeel has a decent crispness to it. Decent session material.

Bork (334) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Bitter, piney hops completely dominate this pale ale. Neither body nor malt manages to balance it properly. Points for keeping the abv well below the standard for the style.
