Ok, I drink this beer more than i drink any other so yeah, i could be considered a fan, but whatever. This beer is a staple in my fridge. and to me... this is the perfect beer for solidarity in a pale ale. Pours a light amber. Smell is citrus and floral...with pine. Man, does this beer taste good! It's perfect for a pale ale. the taste is a sweet-but not too sweet malt, but then the hops have their say. awesome hop bitter..The lacing is awesome.. it's like drooping rings.ABV is 5.6% so it's easy to slam a 6 pack. pretty much perfect for a pale ale on drinkability. i mean this beer is perfect for a pale ale in my opinion and it's really easy to find! they did some serious work on this recipe. An extremely awesome solid beer. In my opinion, if you don't like this pale ale...then you just don't like pale ale.

A: Pours a clear golden with a dense white head. Very lice lacing and retention.
S: This beer smells of balance. Perfect balance of floral citrus hops, light caramel and very light grainy sweet malt. A wee bit of pilsner like aroma is present. Neither the hops nor malt take over the aroma.
T: Starts with a beautiful floral Citrusy, grapefruit and mild pine flavor followed by a lemony citrus in the mid palate. Bitterness is present but subdued and balanced to the sweet malt flavor. The light lemon character and hop flavor persists in a semi dry finish. Quite a complex hop flavor going on here.
M:Medium body with a velvety texture. moderate carbonation. Smooth.
O: This is one of the best overall pale ales I've ever had. Balance is the word here. It's a complex variety of flavors that each have their own identity and distinct flavors are identifiable through the finish. A very smooth and easy drinking beer.

love this stuff - this is my "go to" - and honestly, it tastes even better from the can. bold, beautiful color, maintains its head - can conditioned - I'm sold. and when the supermarket runs the price special for 12, I'm investing in the future. a truly character laden pale (love the pine and evergreen influence) that has legs - keep up the great work, SN !
