3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can picked up from Brewforia Meridian for $2.... Poured into my tall goblet and it produces 1" of white foam that produces decent white lacing.. the brew is fairly clear golden.
Good citrus hops with some background tropical fruity notes... lite pale maltiness that helps bloom the hops.
Flavor mirrors the nose... but seems weak on the palate overall... A light body makes for a IMO a bit of a watery profile... Still very drinkable... sessionable even.
My big bitch would be this seems like an old can.... I picked it up off of a shelf that was obviously room temperature... just seems a bit stale/old.
I bet this would be great very fresh... and it is something that many breweries don’t do... Low ABV/sessionable pale ales are great... this one just didn’t seem "fresh".
From a can into a stem chalice. Pours gold with white head and lace. Aroma of grains, sweet malts, grassy hops, pine, lemon-lime zest. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of pale malt, grains, straw hops, grapefruit zest, minerals, subtle mint toothpaste. Overall flavorful but moderate body, refreshing and decent for the style. mansquito (7127) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2017
At a friend’s wedding: pours copper with white head. Aroma is lightly piny with citrusy notes. Taste is not weird or super crazy, but a lightly bitter APA that succeeds in all the standard ways. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Draft at Drover’s Run. Light golden straw pour with a creamy finger of white head... lots of sheet lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus and floral. Great hop flavor, full of a balanced citrus and tropical blend, some pine. Minimal malt presence... but so smooth. This is a hops beer, but not overly bitter. Really nice beer. sholbert (38) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2017
From a can. Golden pour, light orange hue. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet floral with a light citrus in the background. Flavor is grassy and grapefruit. Highly carbonated, makes it feel more bitter than it is. Oakes (19341) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2017
Slightly hazy, thick rocky head, this is mostly chewy, with a mellow old school hop, chill..they aren’t nailing the malts much but I do like the hop taste.

On tap at Jhanjay, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops and toasted biscuity malt. Flavour is quite dry, with piney hops, and dry toasted biscuity malt. Very dry and toasted on the finish. Very nicely made pale. SinH4 (6554) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2017 Can, thanks luttonm. Upon opening the can, an aroma of floral-earthy fresh hops sprays the room, within seconds, and up to several feet away - incredible. Pours hazy yellow-to-golden color with nice white head. Aroma is floral-earthy pure hops, grapefruits. Taste is floral-earthy, spicy, incredibly nicely hopped, pale malts. Medium carbonation with a slightly silky mouthfeel. An amazing floral-earthy Pale Ale. Something for locals, and I am grateful I could try it in such a great condition. Totally underrated (albeit more old-worldy than fancy and aroma-hoppy), and immensely drinkable. slowrunner77 (13198) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Classic grapefruit and pine aroma and flavor, without as much bitterness as your average ipa. Quite aromatic, tasty and sessionable, 12 oz can from Tavour. bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 23, 2016
