3.74/5  rDev +11.6%

12 oz can with hard to read enjoy by dating on the bottom

Pours hazed oily looking medium amber, Lifts a huge head initially, larger bubble, that recedes to a messy looking film and high thicker lacing.

Resiny hop nose.

More resin, some pine and whole wheat malts on the palate.

Nothing amazing going on here, just a respectable hopped up pale ale. Dry, hoppy and worth a try.

Always good to have more quality beer options in a can.

Poured from a 12oz can into a conic pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- One finger cream-colored head with low retention rate. Nice white lacing about an inch above the body. Golden body with great clarity. Nice looking beer.

S- Tropical fruits, floral hops. Aromatic before tailing off into mellowness. Average.

T- Slight funk. Floral, sweet and fruity hops.

M- Super light feel that finishes gushingly wet. Carbonation is minimal.

O- Middling beer at best. Interesting aroma, mild flavor.

My bro, Gary, came over and brought this over. I guess he liked it and wanted to know it I had it recently on tap when I went to CO on my brewery tour vacation. No, but thanks.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle with a used by date of 8/29/2013 and got two inches of off-white, creamy head that dissipated slowly.

A: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers of off- white head and lots of lacing. Outstanding.

S: Smell of citrus and some floral notes.

T: Mostly floral notes and later some pine but not resin pine smell.

M: Medium carbonation and easy to drink.

O: I have to recommend this and I would have it again: it goes down good. I was excited on the initial pour. Really, The lacing and the head is the best thing about this beer. Overall, it's a better than average beer that is easy to drink in a style that I like.
