4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is now my second favorite pale ale next to headwaters and without a doubt the best beer I’ve ever had out of a 16 oz. can. It’s got a medium body and well balanced malt profile, slightly toward the hoppy side with a pleasant citrus flavor.
Super clear reddish colored pour with a single finger head. Lace present. Aroma has some bright citrus notes along with a hint of sweetness, likely caramel malt. Taste is heavy on malt with a dry finish. Light floral hop notes and lots of caramel malt. Lingering bitterness on the finish. Stinging carbonation.

Can, a nice pale ale. Smooth, good body with a faint citrus hop taste to it. great for the style. MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
Can. Pours a hazy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral and hops. Taste is hops, malts, fruits. Refreshing. raymow (1860) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2015
on tap at the brewpub in Danville - decent amber color. Lightly hopped aroma and flavor. Pretty good.

16oz can. Huh, so I guess some breweries are still making really boring 90s brewpub style APAs. Tan orange body, filtered. Respectable enough head. Stale earthy caramel grain aroma. Toffee, almost a faint amber malt feel. Definitely one I have no interest in buying again. matty (450) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2015
16 oz. can. Pours a clear orange color with a brief white head. Fairly weak aroma of hops. Slightly watery taste, weak hops and malt. It's balanced but just not a lot of flavor to me. Finish is a little bitter. Not much going on for this one.

16oz can to shaker glass. Pours clear amber, two finger off white head, nice lacing and some retention. Aroma of caramel and light citrus. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter. Light bodied, medium carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes mostly sweet caramel, muted floral bitterness. Had better, had worse but they give you a pounder can!

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light stringy speckled lacing clinging nicely all around the glass.
The smell had a light citrus to piney bitterness roaming around my nose with a light biscuity/caramel malt underneath.
The taste was mainly the same: sweet with a tad of bitterness underneath.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as there’s a good harshness but nothing overly done.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA that I would have again. DrinkinWell (389) - - MAY 18, 2014
Pours a clear orangish yellow with thin white head and hardly any lacing. Aromas are faint: straw, some caramel, not much else. The taste isn’t much better. Starts off with a bit of hop bitterness along with sweet malt and some light citrus, dash of honey. Ends on a bitter note. Medium bodied; heavy carbonation. There’s just not much to this beer. It’s a one note kind of drink.
