3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can. Pours and orangish amber with a medium white head, pretty good lacing. Aroma is citrus, herbal, pine, and touch of spruce notes. Some very apparent orange peel notes. Flavor is orange peel, mild pine. Medium bitterness with no real malt sweetness apparent. A touch of oxidation, but since Sun King doesn’t date their cans I don’t know how old this beer is. Finishes on a long citrus note.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pint in a can provided by Sean, drank from a perfect pint glass... The beer pours a light watery copper with orange notes, looks ok but light. The head is off white watery, but good retention and lacing... The aroma is really nice, great fresh citrus notes, a hint of caramel then a perfect amount of hops. Just great... The taste is equally as nice, an easy to drink flavorful pale ale. Would love to get this and crush it 4 can packs of daisy cutter.

Solid pale ale. Hoppy, yet not excessively bitter. Very balanced, actually. Malt side has elements of bread, caramel and biscuits -- without being overly sweet. Hops are citrusy and slightly grassy with a fitting bite of bitterness. Great session beer.

Can from 21st Amendent Liquor in Indy. Pours a nice looking gold with hints of copper. Frothy and sticky white head. Nose is woody and resiny, lots of pine, citrus and apricot. Faint biscuity malts. On tasting, hint of caramel, a strong bitterness that quenches. Lots more of that citrus and resin coming through, along with a sturdy back bone. Pretty awesome APA, up there with Daisy Cutter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can purchased at Keg Liquors in New Albany, Indiana. The pour is orange copper, lightly hazed, with a somewhat off white head. The aroma is lemon bitter hops, a bit grassy, along with a toasted bread maltiness. The taste has a nice balance between the resin orange citrus hops and the bready malt. The palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, and a dry bitter mineral finish. Solid Pale Ale.
