3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can courtesy of Atom. The pour is a clear, deep orange with a thick, off-white, creamy head. Big sheety lace. Nose is very fresh citrus hops, fresh grapefruit rind, orange blossom. Some candy sweetness shows through. Taste is heavily bitter, very soapy (in a good way), floral, extremely dry in finish with no cheese, butter, or excessive body. Clean palate albeit a tad dry and bitter. Lots of apparent bitterness expected for style. I like this one quite a bit. A drinkable hop bomb with no specialty malt nonsense.
Can, Ann Arbor, MI via Kalamazoo. Murky amber. Hoppy nectarine. Spice and honey. Interesting. Leighton (22823) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Can on the way to JFK. Pours clear amber-gold with a frothy, mostly white head. The aroma holds old pine, light caramel and toasted biscuits. Medium sweet flavour with lots of biscuity malts, grains, pine, orange rind. Moderately bitter. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. More toasted grains in the finish, old pine, earth, caramel. Perhaps a bit faded. So so overall. Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2015

Canned. Gold. Some earthy hops and pine aroma. Bit of resin. A nice murican pale ale. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pint can. Nose strong in dough and pine, citric and somewhat dank, lightly herbal. Slightly hazy orange pour with a tight, rocky beige head. Medium body soft and faintly tart with medium-strong bitterness, copious resinous material and light leafy greens, somewhat soapy, but the citrus is dulled and not explosive, the caramel and pine as well. Thin, simplistic malt with too much alcohol showing, seems to be clean but all of the potentially interesting edges have been crudely shorn away. rondphoto (4517) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 21, 2014
can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark amber with a frothy white head, swaths of lace. Taste is malt imbued with vanilla and earthy hay that grows neatly in the palate before adding bittering in a long finish. Quite rich and appealing, a solid Pale Ale. tnkw01 (1857) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Can. Golden color with a medium head. Nice beer, none of the terrible bitter aftertaste of some IPAs. Aroma is hay, grains, a touch of grapefruit. Taste is A malty grain with the right amount of grapefruit tasting hops. Nice. hotstuff (5281) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Rated on 7-27-2012 (Can) This beer pours a medium sized off-white head with a long retention, golden transparent body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, caramel malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is right on for the style, easy to drink, worth trying, and is an APA that I would drink again.
