Can from Total Wine.
Low key c-hop nose with some soapy elements. Caramel flavors, tangerine hops that could be a bit fresher, yeasty-orchardy ESB notes. Not bad, and somewhat unusual.

It’s a hybrid APA/ESB. From what I know of the styles, this one just tastes like a Pale Ale.

this was ok too. I see what they were going for with the apa/bitter hybrid, but that doesn’t mean it was necessary. an ok example of both, but an underhopped ipa or a slightly bright bitter...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from can to glass. Amber hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is faint pine, grassy, grapefruit, cardboard. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium light body and soft carbonation. Taste is dry with a average bitterness following and a slight oxidized finish. Overall this brew comes across a bit watery and oxidized.

Pours out with a nice silky, lasting head. All else is pretty average, faint hoppy aroma, citrus, taste is grapefruit, but kind of flat, not much of a finish, bordering on watery.

Dry crisp pale ale if somewhat overhopped for the style. Lovely nose, nice long finish but middle was a bit empty. Enjoyable regardless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh citrus, weed. Nice citrus bite and decent biscuit maltiness, ricola, hoppy bitter finish. Quite a hoppy pale ale, almost like an ipa and surprisingly smooth.
