16oz can. Hazed copper with a fluffy and slightly off-white colored head. Thick sticky lacing down the sides. Smells floral and citric with some underlying herbal notes. Sweet grains along the back. Taste is similar, with a crisp and refreshing hop bite that spreads herbal flavors and pine out. An underlying grainy sweetness help keep the hops honest. Earthy bitterness sticks to the tongue. The mouthfeel is slick and creamy on the palate with some light crispness that tingles the tongue. This was a nice APA with lots of fresh hop flavors wrapped up in a quite drinkable package. Love the can graphic as well.

I would have simply rated it 3.5 for a golden haze appearance common with many pale ales, but for the first time I factored in can art (because I am a nerd for 8-bit art).
Slight sweet citrus, crispness... followed by what I fear to be a soapy note.
Lemons, followed by a great malt backing, sadly I am tasting the soap right at the end. It is taking me out of the fantastic flavor.
This one is great for a pale ale, not super carbonated, but the bubbles you do feel count.
I would like to re-rate this, because I believe I just got a bad batch considering the good flavors before the fatal flaw.
