Hazy dark golden color with lasting ivory head. Dusty pale grains, dry spicy hop, mild floral aromas. medium body. Grainy biscuity pale malt flavors with some dusty spicy hop-not very bitter--smooth easy drinking---not bad.

Pint at Fox & Hound. Golden, clear color. Irregular head, good lacing. Somewhat hoppy, light for the style, kind of like Diet IPA. Real clean, crispy, similar to pilsner. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 Pours to decent-sized, bubbly head and moderate orange-gold color. Thick, but highly uneven, coat of lacing. Light floral aroma with some grassy and earthy notes along with caramel malt. Smooth caramel malt flavor with some hop bite in the finish. Borders on watery, but just enough body to suit my preferences. Light, easy, sessionable APA - nothing exceptionally memorable, but fits the style, has no overly detracting flaws, and has a very cool retro Nintendo logo on the can to boot. AUGUST UPDATE: Bumping this up a notch. It may not be a "wower" per se, but itís extremely well-balanced - you get the hops, but itís not a catty or piney mess, and the caramel malts arenít over-sweet at all. Really could drink these all day - yummy, clear hoppiness, yet not anything off or over-the-top. After some strong IPAs, itís refreshing and very welcome.

Can. Pours deep gold with a big pillowy head and thick lacing. Aroma is a bit hampered but what escapes is very bright and slightly tropical. Creamy mouthfeel feel without too assertive bitterness. Slightly sweet and dry. Overall solid.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Pours a clear yellow with big white head and good lacing. Aroma is moderate citrus hops. Taste is mild caramel with grass and herbs in the finish and aftertaste. Not my favorite APA kind of vibe. Pretty drinkable, no glaring flaws, but nothing to seek out.
Hops and more hops. Citrus smell, pine and citrus taste going down. Sometimes a strong, bitter finish feels out of place, but it works well here. This beer is a good balance if youíre in the mood for citrus/pine hoppy flavor. 5+4+7+4+13=3.3

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright hazy yellow with decent head retention and lacing. Piney hops yeasts, malts, resin, toffee. Light bodied with decent carbonation, giving it a crisp feel. Solid pale ale but not too different from other beers in the same catagory

Thanks to unclemike for this one! Cheers, Mike! Pours a hazy orange with an off-white head. Nose is a little bit of malt with some piney hop bite with hints of herbs. Flavor is similar- light malt up front followed by grapefruit and pine bitterness on the back end. A kind of West Coast pale. Light to medium in body with lingering grapefruit hops.
