3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tall can from trade. Aroma was of grassy and piney hops. Flavor was the same, but the palate was rather thin. I could see one consuming mass quantities of this brew. Pretty good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can, courtesy StFun. Pours a mostly clear golden yellow and topped by a small, off white foamy head that dissipates quickly. The aroma shows notes of light, floral hops, light citrus, and some fresh grass all atop a pale malt base. The flavor follows with some light citrus, and fresh cut grass to go with floral hop bitterness. The pale bready malts adds a touch of sweetness to go with the light bitterness from the hops. Light bodied on the palate with good carbonation and a lingering floral hop bitterness on the finish. This is an easy drinking pale ale, but just lacks that something extra to set it apart.

A clear, golden body with a rocky, white head. The aroma is fruity with notes of tangerine and mild apricot. It has a light, somewhat thin body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a more neutral finish.

aroma is very light pine, mostly dull wet grains. appearance is tranlucent deepened amber, filmy head, good lacing. flavor is orange zest, fresh lemon leaves which unfortunately come across as artificial at times. fresh pale malt not nearly as grainy here as in nose, great balance but zero pine or other sharp hop character

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice APA, with a good, citric hops character and depth of flavor. It falls short of the best APAs, but would certainly do just fine most of the time.

Can from StFun! Pours gold with aslight but persistent white head that leaves very thick lacing. Aroma is lightly citrus with a bit of cereal. Taste is very bitter hop forward, very pleasantly so. Lightly citrusy and very crispy on the finish. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber with a white head that turns into a lasting ring that does leave some lacing. Pretty pine forward in the nose. Taste is bittersweet - sweetly malty with a nice hop bite. Excellent beer.

Can, as pictured, courtesy of Howard. Poured a clear gold. Smells of grassy notes and citrus hops. Very drinkable, great example of the style, I think. Simple but well made. Would love to have more of this, but alas...
