Draft. Good session ale, but I’m not a fan of that style. Nice aroma. Just fine.

12 oz. can, courtesy of Prufrockstar (thanks a lot, Chris), pours a cloudy orange-tinted yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out loads of floral hops, light tropical fruits, and zesty citrus. Flavour is rather dry, with dry floral hops, biscuity malt, and some citrus. Not the most exciting or pronounced flavours, but well-balanced and dry. Solid stuff.

Unmarked silver bullet can from Prufrockstar -- thanks!

Gold pour, fluffy white head. Upfront oniony citra aroma with some simcoe tropical fruit in the background, hints of pine. Not a lot of grain presence in the aroma. Flavor follows the aroma, modestly hopped--APA territory-- turning soapy late, cracker malts. Pretty nice for 4.5%, but notably thin on the tongue and a bit prickly.

trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Old rating. This was a good, solid, afternoon pale ale. Biscuit mailts and a crisp hop bite to balance -- just the right recipe for Beer Week.

3.9
harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Unknown canning date. Says on the can "cowiche canyon hop lab No.2" Nice, slightly hazed light golden color with a solid sheet of fine white foam. Smell is gangster. Lemons, melons (honeydew and cantaloupe), grass, sweet citrus juice and a touch of cracker. Flavor is grain, hint of bitter, touch of body odor reminds me of Citra hops. Slightly sweet. Medium bodied with lighter carb than anticipated and a semi dry finish. Nice beer, will probably buy many more over the next couple months.

3.7
Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this can. It is being reviewed from notes and was drank fresh. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong pine, pineapple and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is full of pine, biscuit malt, orange citrus and some low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5
5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Can:   Pale golden, vibrant, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrus peel, pith, and bright straw on the nose.   Moderate bitterness on the tongue.   Pith and peel.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Bright hoppy finish, also with straw and hay.   Good balance, not dull, and not overly hopped.   Solid example of an American Pale Ale.


3.4
48FanInCali (851) - California, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Can. Golden pour. Nose mainly of hops, bread, and malt. Taste follows the nose. Semi dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5
bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2013
(12oz can, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a clear yellow body with a tall foamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, florals, and biscuit. Flavor of biscuit, pineapple, citrus, light pine, and caramel with a moderately dry finish.
