Poured from a can into a pint glass. The appearance is a bright orange color with a large white head. The aroma is full of hops and not much else. The taste is mostly hops with some malt in the background. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Can date of 10/12/2016. Thechasm442 (1006) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy to transparent orange color. Sly carbonation rises. One finger white foamy head. Messy foamy lacing.
The aroma had a super nice sweet to bitter piney hoppiness bursting over a nice malt backbone, not overbearing.
The flavor leads with the piney hops, bitter and sweet. Dry piney aftertaste leading into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a great sessionability about it. Good carbonation and doesn’t distract from bitterness. Malt level seems appropriate to provide enough body.
Overall, really nice APA surprisingly enough even with the date, I could drink this again, preferably fresher.
Draft. Clear caramel color with an average white head and nice lacing. Aroma is piney with fresh citrus and grains. Taste is grapefruit, pine, citrus, and grains. Average thickness and dry. islay (3036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2016
12 oz. can, consumed on 11-15-16. Pours a clear, dark bronze with a large amount of beige head. Scents of apricot and pine. Some toffee and dill in the aroma. Simple, dry yet floral-sweet flavor. A touch of bitterness in the finish. Decent flavor but has little to recommend it. Dry aftertaste. Soft in the palate. Easy to drink. Seems insubstantial in the palate. Nothing special. I’m guessing this beer was a bit better a few weeks ago. CObiased (548) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2016
12oz can - it pours a clear copper color with a med fluffy off white head. Nice malty and piney hop aroma. Hop forward flavor with layered background notes of caramel, oats and a mild citrusy finish.

Clear, dark golden color with off-white head. Aroma is slightly dank and vegetal with nice grassy hops. Taste starts grassy with fresh hop flavor but there is also a nice nutty malt backbone. Finish is quite balanced with just a light to medium bitterness. Light body but quite smooth on the palate and well carbonated. Overall it’s a really nice, easy drinking fresh hop ale. jsporrer (1128) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Pours a clear deep golden yellow with a thin white head. Sweet grass and pine aroma. Medium body with some lacing. Mostly light pine taste with some bitterness. Smooth up front with a slightly bitter finish and aftertaste. Not unpleasant but not that special. Christpuncher (3214) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2016
aroma is super hoppy and grainy. flavor is light, crispy, dry and the hops explode. very crushable and refreshing. pours an liught copper with a thin white head. had at jerrys. coachd (945) - Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2016
The description was right about the aroma; it is fresh and grassy, also very clean. Light copper color with a decent sized tuft of bright white foam. Lots of lacing on the glass. Tastes earthy. The hops are not sharp but long lasting without much sweetness in the background. Very drinkable, good representation of an American Pale Ale. Unpretentious, you could drink this right out of the can at a bonfire. The palate has an above average amount of carbonation, more dense than I would have expected, but I think that improves it. This is a very good APA, not watery, on the heavy end of the style but still refreshing. mjg74 (3190) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Canned 10/12. From Casa De Oro. Crisp hoppy character up front. Good deal aof malt balance in there. Very fresh and clean. Some grassy hop notes are detected. Solid, well balanced pale ale.
