One of the best pale ales I have had. Nice and citrusy with a nice kick of hops. Pours like a wheat beer, very yellow with a white head. Goo out of a can as well

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Poured into the glass with a darker yellow color and a short duration head. Malt was a light grain followed by the spruce and citrus hop load you expect from an APA. The hops bordered on a "chewy" citrus theme. This would be a good hot weather brew, and I recommend it. 2-Bros. seems to always deliver a good product.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

12oz can. My can is more lime-green colored, vs the yellow one pictured. Swirl by: 07/25/13 (believe in the swirl). Nice citrusy hop aroma fills my nose as I flick the tab open on the can. Clear yellow color. Big white head. Decent airy lace. Citrus, some lime in the aroma. Passion fruit, that makes sense. Little floral, light grass. Just a light breadiness. Way different from Two Brothers’ other pale ale, Bitter End... Way less caramel malt here, and more fresh citrusy hop, from what I remember. I think this is a great improvement. Then again, this labels itself as an "Extra Pale Ale". What does that mean? From this example, seems like it’s lighter-colored than most pale ales, much more pale yellow, and a less pronounced malt profile. Lighter-medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Light bitter taste. The big, fresh hops are cool, as well as the minimal malt. The body seems to be lacking something, though. A couple new citrus-hoppy pale ales have been coming out lately, the most recent I’ve tried that comes to mind is Southern Tier’s Live. This is still enjoyable and easy drinking. But Live seemed a little more well-rounded compared to this one.

Can. Pale clear yellow pour with a white head. Nice pineapple aroma and a similar taste with the citrus/pineapple elements. Lighter palate and it finishes really clean - almost uneventful actually. Solid summer beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very very light in color. Smells very hoppy... not citrusy or piney though, hard to describe smell. Kind of bland. Taste is bitter with not much sweetness from the malt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus and interesting hops. Light mouthfeel with a dry, sweet finish. Not bad, but wouldn’t be my top pick.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light haze to the yellow color with a two finger white head that dissipates to light lacing. Green grass and orange zest on the nose with something stronger when you swirl it. Lemon, orange, some juicy grapefruit. Bready malts push through with a medium body and carbonation. Ends with earth hops and sweetness. Not a lot of bitterness throughout that make this an easy drinking beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 12-oz can pours a clear light golden pale colored brew with an average sized head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of both grassy and citrus/grapefruit hops, a hint of lemon zest and golden grain malt. Taste is medium bodied, moderate carbonation with all the grassy and citrus hop flavor of an IPA without the heavy bitterness. There is more golden grain malt detected in flavor than aroma. Finish has a short-lived citrus hop aftertaste followed by a crisp mild grassy hop aftertaste. A sessional soft IPA profile in a pale ale style is the best way to describe this.
