3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber in color with an off-white head. Nose is decently hoppy with some citrus and floral aromas. Some light tropical fruits, a bit of toast, and quite a bit of bread. Bitter citrus peel and light pine. A decent amount of toasted malt and bread, some light pineapple flavor, grapefruit, and floral hops. Pretty decent pale ale, but at $4 a pop, not a repeat.
12 oz. can. Pours a thick, slowly collapsing white head, with moderate lacing, over a slightly hazy, effervescent light amber (SRM 6) body.......nose is toasted malts with cereal, bread, mild hop spice.....taste is heavy toasted cereal, with cracker from the malts, dry throughout, finishing with lingering strong hop bitterness, minimal hop spice, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a relatively simple APA in both aroma and flavor. The bitter finish is rather harsh and lingering. BJCP 7/3/10/4/6 darbeer75 (925) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Aroma: lightly malty; not much hops; Appearance: clear light amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: surprisingly malty for an APA; not exactly what I was looking for; more like a light Scotch ale; Palate: medium body with long, malty finish; Overall: okay; would probably not seek out again. wombat23 (1621) - Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2017
12 oz. can. Pours a clear pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, citrus, pine. Taste follows nose with some floral notes, citrus, and grapefruit. Fairly bitter finish. geolgau (359) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 27, 2017
Aroma is subtle, mostly malty with yeast notes, pineapple and floral hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. Taste is also malty with caramel, bitter herbs, pomello skin and some light floral notes. Bitter, dry aftertaste. Balanced beer, well made, but too standard. ebone1988 (2016) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2017
Can from Merchants. Aroma is malty, caramel, pine, somewhat musty, fruity, dry, interesting. Appearance is amber, light tan head, hazyish. Taste is pine, bitter caramel malt, citrus, slightly fruity, pretty bitter, light but tons of flavor. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, bitter pine aftertaste. Overall, it’s pretty bitter though refreshing.

355ml can from Bliznetsy in Moscow. Canned in 2015, so probably past the drink by date. Pours hazy orange with a gushing head and quite a few floaters. Aroma is grapefruit, yeast, caramel, perfumey fruit. Taste is harsh hoppy bitterness, cereal. Seems to have aged very badly. Or it wasn't great in the first place.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2017 Ihan maukas, todella katkera jälkimaku. Muuten sopivan maltainen ja helppo juoda. vinivini (2661) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 14, 2017
Can. Light gushing makes the head be big and airy. Citrusy aroma. Tangerine & grapefruit. A bit tired. Light to medium body. Medium dry taste. Massive citrusy hops. Medium bitterness. A classic US craft pale ale in its post-best shape.
