Pours a cloudy orange with a copious amount of slowly dissipating stark white head. Very sweet nose- like caramel syrup. Some sweetness in the taste, some caramel that ends with a pretty nice cane sugar laced bitterness. This is an interesting more-sweet-than-bitter beer that’s pretty good.

Can poured a hazy orange hue w/ small fizzy fully diminishing white head. Medium fruity and hay aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are hay, orange, honeydew mellon, grass, and lime zest. Medium bodied, balanced mouthfeel, and lasting bitterness in the finish.

Hazy orange pour with average white head. Aroma of fresh citrus, zesty hops, and cut grass. Flavor is also citrusy, persisting bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 On tap poured into a shaker. Mellow and light notes of grass and caramel start this one out, but that gives way to more fruity notes, particularly mango, orange, and assorted melon notes. It pours a golden pale color with a touch of orange and haze to it. An abundant, soft white head tops it, and slowly disappears to a thin dishwater layer, but leaves an above average lacing down the glass. The taste is very nicely balanced between medium sweetness and medium bitterness. A slick, smooth texture accompanies the medium body with a soft, yet somewhat fizzy, average level of carbonation. Mostly caramel and sweet citrus greet the tongue with a slight tartness that only appears at the swallow. There’s a zesty citrus and grass hop bitter finish, but it mellows rather quickly leaving behind a light resin and grapefruit aftertaste with some toasty malt quality to it.

Tulip glass. Velvety smooth hops odor. Malty mouth feel. The hops have a nice rich flavor.

Good solid american pale ale. But the can design alone would sell me on this.

Can from RobertDale thanks for the opportunity!
Hazy light golden color with a huge frothy white head that persists forever before leaving tons of sticky lace. Tropical fruit and pine resin mixed with a bit of bready malt and a hint of sulfur make up the aroma. The flavor is bread and a hint of caramel with bits of resin and grapefruit. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. decent pale ale, I could drink this.

Can while working on my shelving project. Pours hazy gold with big head. Nose of pine and spice. Tastes of sticky pine sap, peppery, resin, lemongrass, and floral. Slight sticky palate but overall nice and I like tha can. I spent about 4 hours of my life in Kansas mostly in the car driving through farmland but glad I finally get to enjoy one of their beverages.

An Australian hopped American Pale Ale is a pretty weak way to celebrate 2pac day, but I guess it’s about as good as I can do this year.
The aroma has some lightly fruity hops, some fall leaves... & some lightly toasty maltiness. It’s nice, I guess the hop bouquet leaves me wanting a little bit though, just offers the tip.
The flavor is well balanced, lightly sweet but satisfyingly bitter, it’s got a good zippy citrus hop character working alongside a bright maltiness that has some mild toasty notes.
It’s agreeable beer on all accounts, it’s not a hop bomb by any stretch but rather a beer that utilizes hops very well.
Suffice to say I don’t think that 2pac would have liked this beer very much at all.
