3.28/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a pint glass, this ale has a very pale golden straw color, and a minimal amount of fizzy white head. There is some sticky lacing on the glass, but that's about all the foam this one's got. The aroma is mainly full of sharp pine and grassy hops with some bitter grapefruit as well.

The flavor follows the nose, starting with refreshing light grassy hop flavor. The grassy hops mix with a very slightly sweet carafoam malt before the more bitter grapefruit and pine hops kick in. These flavors finish it out leaving you with a lingering bitterness.

Always Sunny Pale Ale has a very light crisp body and mouthfeel, which is definitely a plus for making it a session beer. But it's not really that special of a pale ale, and for the price, you would probably be just as satisfied with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Not to mention saving yourself about $5 for a sixer.

Not impressed at all. Only one flavor profile no head which means no lacing light bodied.
Very one sided beer. BITTER BITTER AND MORE BITTER
I would not drink again but if you like very bitter very hoppy beers, this is the one for you. I chocked it down but just not my favorite. Slightly disappointing.

3.78/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This brew pours with a very fluffy white head, strong carbonation and is about 50% opaque. It is a nice clear yellow when held up to the light and a brown/orange color when not held up to the light.

The smell is piney hops, soapy, pine resin, orange and other citrus hops.

The taste follows the nose with piney and orange hops at the beginning, moving to a malt backbone the dry piney hops at the end. A dry aftertaste is left in the mouth after swallowing along with a little pine resin.

The feel is solid and chewy but also dry. This goes down kind of rough due to the bitter, dry aftertaste.

Overall this is a solid but unimpressive American IPA. It has potential but the dryness is a real turn off for me; a little more hop oil would be better. However, if you like a brew with a dry aftertaste, go for it. A little more flavor complexity would be nice as well.
