UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 330ml bottle thanks to fugitive. Hazy orange color with white head. Malty and light hoppy aroma, bready, caramel, citrusy fruity, grassy, pine. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. KeefOz (1952) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2015
Poured a cloudy honey brown colour with a one- to two-finger white frothy head that retained very well and laced poorly. Carbonation high and fine. Quite a few small yeast particles settling out. Aroma is light and subtle with passionfruit and hints of citrus (grapefruit). Taste initially of malt sweetness then pine with a nice moderate bitterness; not as good as the aroma. Light body. Crisp with a tangy bitter finish. OK. alex_leit (5247) - Minsk, BELARUS - NOV 10, 2015

Cloudy, hoppy, citrusy - what’s not to like. Refreshing and tasty, crisp and tangy. It’s all good

Golden. Thin texture. Very crisp and fresh. Earthy hop flavour. Nicely dry and bitter. BeerNinjaUK (491) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2015
Pours with a thick head, which dissipates with smooth lacing. Colour is a light amber with a very slight greeny hint. Very light aroma with slight sweet floral notes and a seawater tang. Taste is stronger and much more satisfying with really good bitterness and soft carbonation - hints of banana, oily resin and nutty cereal. undercurrent25 (2246) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2015
IMBC 2015 Pours a pale colour, taste is hoppy, easy drinking but not exciting and a bit disappointing whoisghost (193) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2015
Pours a cloudy, burnt orange. Thick and creamy, bright white head. A tropical fruit aroma - pineapple with a grassy cameo. Slight citrus taste as well as some straw and grass notes. Very light and crisp, taste doesn’t linger for long. Would suit a hot summers day as a quick thirst quencher before something a little heavier. ineedbeer (2298) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Poured from a can with a best by date of 04/14/2016.
Aroma is fairly malty with toasted bread, cracker, biscuit and lighter caramel. Moderate hop notes of pine resin, grapefruit, wood and floral. Smell quite a bit like Sierra Nevada Pale.
Pours a hazy, copper color with a medium sized, thick white head that recedes quickly to a thin film that lingers. Moderate lacing and small legs.
Flavor is somewhat sweet with toasted bread and cracker. Faint caramel. Moderate bitterness with moderate hop notes. Hops are classic grapefruit and pine with a touch of wood.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty decent pale ale and very "classic American." Easy drinking with balanced bitterness, malt and hop profiles. That being said, America seems to have moved towards fruitier hopped pale ales with a lot of hop aroma and flavor and less malt.
