3.68/5 rDev -0.5%
A - 4 - clear copper amber color with nice thick film of bubbles on top, leaves nice ring of lacing already. Can is distinctive and original.
S - 4 - For an american pale this is very fragrant in a good way. Sweet malts, citrusy hops (orange juice, pineapple, lemon/lime).
T - 3.5 - Definitely hop bitterness, but much more undefined than in the smell. Bready malts, maybe even a little too much for a pale ale.
M - 3.5 - Medium mouthfeel, very bitter, but undefined hops taste - which carries over into the aftertaste. Alc covered.
O - 3.75 - This beer was a little dissapointing in the taste, which was too bitter, without enough specific hop flavors. Also the malts came off a little bit dark for an American Pale Ale.

3.85/5 rDev +4.1%
A: Dark brown with gold hues. Almost not head. A few scattered white foam speckles down the glass. Medium low carbonation.
S: Heavy on the floral and lighter on the dried leaf not than other pales.
T: Dried grass and hay. Almond and semi sweet malt. Dry hop finish. Slight coppery mineral aftertaste.
M: Crisp and light for a pale despite the dry hop. I don't mind the aftertaste, it's not too overpowering and doesn't build to a bit monster.
O: One of the better pales out there. Full flavor without the overpowering dry hop finish. Pale, though, doesn't appear to be my favorite style.

3.11/5 rDev -15.9%
A: Rich copper with a deep and uniform carbonation. Topped with two fingers of weakly soapy off-white head after a semi-aggressive pour. Lacing is good and carb is persistent.
S: Uniformly weak nose of tangerine and blood orange. No malt detected.
T: The hefty carbonation covers the initial flavor. Mid palate is a generic citrus with a fading pine. After taste is the only redeeming portion as it again displays the nose with a surprisingly pleasant and unique blood orange note that lingers.
M: Too much carb up front and a flat, bland residual feel in the end.
Disappointing but with a surprising citrus blood orange aftertaste that made me go back again. This is the best offering of theirs I've had and something that has the potential to be hugely improved upon.

Enjoyed this can out of a large snifter glass.
A: Pours a copper hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates leaving nice rings down the side of the glass and ends in a wispy lace.
S: Good hoppy aroma with a slight citrus background.
T: Bitter hoppy flavor with that same citrus background that finishes on the dry side of bitter.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: Excellent pale ale.
