3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Omar! Pours a really nice golden copper with very nice medium head. Aroma is grapefruit and some orange peel, slight dank hop. Taste is more orange peel and some grapefruit juice. A little thin and then overly malty as it warms near the end of the taste. Nice session can pale.

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...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can to tulip. Pours a clear golden orange with a creamy off-white head that leaves some lacing behind. Nose involves some dust, hop notes of mostly spice, some citrus and light pine, hay and grass, with some biscuit and bread notes. Taste is quite bitter and lightly sweet. Medium bodied, tingly, prickly with bitterness. A nice, drinkable pale, if a little mild on the nose and flavor.

Can from Stfun. Poured a golden color with medium nice head. Aroma was grassy and citrus. Taste was much more bitter than i was expecting which was a plus in my book. Pretty solid pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, thanks to ridglens, 01/14/2014. Pours golden amber, clear, with frothy white head which fades to the surface, leaving sticky lacing around the glass. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruit with grassy middle, touch of pine in the end, toasted cereal malts. Aroma is grapefruit hoppiness with big pine kick and herbal bitterness, some caramel, toasted malts in the finish. Medium light body. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very pleasant session beer and a good example of an american pale. Light, drinkable with a decent malt backbone, but hops dominate. It’s moderately bitter and heavy on the citrus. Finish is crisp, clean and refreshing.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can supplied by StFun -- many thanks! Served at 52˝°F on a breathtakingly alluring spring day.
To long-stemmed white wine glass, it pours an orange with which a sudsy off-white head 1˝ fingers in length stood.
Aromas of bar soap, chives, beach sand, herbal hops, and American ale yeast.
Tastes much the same with the addition of chalk dust, sweat, and damp cardboard. Not much hop flavor, which was a letdown.
Decent drinking for a pale ale.

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.
