A delicious and well balanced Pale Ale. Can serving. Bright, punchy hops meet a slightly caramel and sweet back end. This is a truly well rounded beer and stays nicely within a sessionable range at 5.2%. Very drinkable.

Poured a light golden color with aromas of citrus, pine resin, and some malt. Flavors match the aromas, solid hop presence, that were flavorful and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pours with a somewhat hazy gold body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up some citrus and malts and then there is sort of a resiny edge to it. The taste has some nice hoppiness that’s citrus grapefruit hoppiness rolling into modest resiny pine hops and there’s a nice degree of maltiness off in the background. This is a pretty nice Pale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Look: pours a dark orange color. Thick white head. Thin lacing.
Smell: tropical fruit. Very sweet. Mango. Pineapple.
Taste: bitterness. Not as much tropical fruit as the smell. Slight maltiness in the middle.
Feel: very dry. Leaves a heavy film on the mouth.
Overall: ok beer. Wish they had done more on the taste addition of the hops to match the smell.
First drank: home 8/3/14
Better out of the can than a glass.

can @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear medium amber with a 3" fluffy white head that lasts the entire drink. bands of lace. Aroma of hops and fruity malt. Taste is solid malt that is enveloped by floral/citrus hops that match nicely. An average strength hoppy brew that will satisfy all but the hopheads. Recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to tectactoe for sharing. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a ring. Aroma is very grassy with some grapefruit and tropical fruit. Tastes pretty smooth and juicy. A mixture of grassy hops, caramel, and tropical fruit. Solid pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Hazy sunshine & burnt gold color with a frothy, dim white foam settling & lasting long on top. Lots of carbonation bubble streams rising. Aroma full of clean, grassy hops & weeds, light soapy element with brisk hops, mild orange rind, & the lightest finish of peach & honeydew. Taste is more floral than expected; lots of grass & weeds as well, retaining the zestiness & crispness I was getting in the aroma. A touch of grapefruit pith & orange rind bitterness, some herbal notes, & a lightly toasted malt character towards the back-end. Still mostly hop driven, though. Clean, finishing bitter bite with lingering notes of orange rind & melon. It might lack the "punch" of some other pale ales (especially Galaxy hopped ones) but I still thought this was quite tasty, and certainly & nice pale ale regardless.
