Poured from the can into a small pint glass ( I split the can with my SO).

Appearance is great for a PA. Far darker than most, with a great color profile that reflects the light. The carbonation makes it almost sparkle.

The smell is very citrusy, with caramel malts punching through the mix. Really entices you to drink it!

The taste is superb for a Pale Ale. This will be my go to Pale Ale from now on. The hops are perfectly balanced, and the malt is clear, light, yet has a rich flavor. Hints of caramel too.

Mouthfeel is great, drinkability is superb.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Rich golden colored. Massive tightly knit off white head that's easily an inch thick. Brussels lacing. Great clarity. Aroma of vegetal Galaxy hops. The flavor is fairly bitter and prominently features the vegetal Galaxy hops. The fade is light malt with a hint of Galaxy hops. The mouth is dry and somewhat chalky.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the can a slightly hazy dark gold with two fingers of rich off-white head. Decent amount of sticky lacing left behind.

Earthy aroma of caramel malts and earth along with light tangerine and pineapple.

Tasted of light tangerine and pineapple along with sugars, biscuit and sweet caramel malts. Finished with lighter bitterness.

Medium bodied and clean with a moderate carbonation.

A wee bit on the malty side but an easy-drinking and tasty Pale Ale from Tallgrass.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

I'm not yet a fan of over-the-top hop flavor, so this is a slight stretch for me, but I think it's quite good. It is hoppy, but with lots of other flavors. It's no one trick pony. I drank the first three cans from the can. There's something about a bottle that just feels better, but I don't think the can affects the taste and I kind of wanted to experience the novelty (I hadn't had beer from a can in *many* years). I poured the last can into a glass. It was nice to be able to smell the beer a while drinking from a glass, and I love the appearance of this beer. It has a nice head of foam and a beautiful copper color. Just slightly cloudy. Definitely pour and then drink!

I love the artwork on the can. Who knows what 8-bit has to do with this beer (underpowered it isn't), but it's certainly memorable. I'll definitely buy again.
