Pours golden-orange out of a 16 oz can. Nice aroma of citrus and floral hops. Flavor is nicely balanced with nice grapefruit notes, followed by a slightly bitter finish. Nice pale.

Has some decent pine and citrus scents. Taste is more resin and has a lingering bitter, wish there was more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can thanks to StFun! Light orange pour, good quarter inch head and sweet creamy oranges a very light hops. Flavor has a light hop profile, a little woody malt and a slightly creamy citrus aftertaste. Very good, could see drinking this around a fall campfire all night long.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallboy from StFun poured into a tulip.
Pours a light, crystal-clear amber with a small, short-lived beige head that recedes to a soapy swirl and leaves spots of lacing.
The aroma is mainly lightly toasted pale malts and some grassy hops with some herbal hints as well. Even some light citrus in the nose. Really solid aroma.
Fairly bitter taste with a metallic character that lingers in the finish and through the aftertaste. There is a light bready malt sweetness in the background. The enticing hop aromas just don’t deliver as well in the taste.
The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.
This is not an overly impressive pale as the taste doesn’t deliver the complexity and hop profile that the aroma suggests. Too much metallic bitterness with too little flavor.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 Draft at Spencer’s Stadium Tavern. Pours golden with white head. This beer is a complete exercise of balance. You get a fruity hop nose with plenty of toasted malt. You get toasted malt flavor with some oraneg-ish flavored hops and a mild bitter finish. Light to medium body with a dry short lived finish. Flawless.

Can. Pour is gold with a nice white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of grapefruit hops, bread, caramel malt. Taste is moderately bitter, grassy/citrus hops, bready malt. Palate is dry, soft, oily, with a nicely bitter finish. Drinks closer to an IPA, nicely dry and bitter.

Had this at Sun King and also picked up a growler. Hoppy/ yeasty aroma. Amber pour with a malty sweet taste and hoppy finish. Definitely a stronger and more flavorful pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a thin film at the top.
Aroma: Big zesty piney hop blast.
Taste: Bitter, earthy hops, slight spicy sticky malt, finishes dry and piney.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, fairly carbonated.
Overall: Reminded me of the hop and malt profile I find in Pacific North West beers. Not my favorite APA, but drinkable.
