Pale golden color with soft lemon and melon esters and a bready malt body. Dry hopped with Centennial and experimental hops from the Yakima Valley. If you like a hoppy IPA, but dont always care for the higher alcohol, try an El Conquistador XPA.

I got one of those giant cans because I like a lot of beer in one canister. Thats why I liked 40s in high school. This is pretty good, for what it is. Al respectably low ABV pale. No need to get into the guts of the profile. Its tasty and refreshing and holds its own in the style category. Compared to the price of a bomber of the same, its a clear steal. The fresh taste is pretty profound, making one wonder how the IIPA Shipwreck would fare in a huge can like this. (Mission: please make this happen) Its also on sale at Costco, which has me pondering the idea of going over there with a pallet jack and stocking up.

Bottle from Albertsons. Lightly sweet tropical nose. Flavor is fairly dry with a bit of pepper up front. Moves into a little sweetness and a touch of tropical flavor. Pretty tasty pale ale.

hotstuff (5078) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Rated on 12-28-2015 (Bottle) This beer poured a huge foamy, fluffy white head that mostly diminished, light hazy pale golden body, slow rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, tropical fruits, spicy, and pale malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops, tropical fruits, and pale malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this is a medium bodied APA. A drinkable beer that is easy drinking and not overly hoppy or bitter tasting. A mediocre APA.

Pours in a hazy golden color with a very thin line of white head that disappear rather quickly. Aroma; Fruity hops, floral notes, citrus and some yeast. Flavours; a little watery, lemon, fruity, yeast and a little malt bitterness in the end. A ordinary beer thats all. Nothing more.
