Wow, what an aroma. Super intense "pine/resin" hops. People often say that an IPA (or APA in this case) has a "piney" aroma and taste, but this one literally smells like a spruce tree or something... in a good way. I've actually had this for a couple months by accident, so I can only imagine how intense it would be when super fresh. Taste is very similar, although a bit toned down so you can tell that it's "just a pale ale" rather than an IPA. Spruce again, with some sweeter nectarine and orange type flavors. Malt presence is very mild but still enough to bring a balance to the blast of hops. Awesome beer, kind of hard to describe, and almost worth trying for the aroma alone. I just keep smelling it. I want more of this.

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

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of pillowy ivory foam which is leaving a nice lace on the glass as it slowly dissipates. Quite good.

Smell: very piney, resiny and slightly citrusy hops atop a sweet malt base. Quite refreshing; I like it.

Taste: fresh and floral hops with more of that resiny, piney quality. The malt character is a bit on the sweet side for my taste, but basically it is good.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a moderate carbonation and a rockily refreshing texture. It works in this context.

Overall: a decent pale ale, if a bit sweet for me.

Type: 12-oz.can
Glass: Can/pint glass
From: Whole Foods in La Jolla (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $9.99 for a 6-pack
Purchased: April 19, 2014
Consumed: April 19, 2014
Misc.: Rated everything but the color on a train; rated the color the next day

Poured a caramel, orange, semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of white foamy head. Good foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention.

Smelled sugary floral notes, citrus notes, grapefruit, butter orange, resin hops, tropical hops and orange sorbet.

Tasted similar to the nose. Got sweet floral notes first, citrus, orange sorbet, resin hops, tropical hops, mango and slight butter notes.

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Rather abrupt finish.

A very good pale ale. Will definitely have it again.
