12oz can ~$1.49. Yellow-orange color, slightly hazed, good head. Aroma is like mild citrus and grains, not great. Flavor is sort of grainy too, not much hoppiness, not a good pale ale. The label is also offensively tacky, spend some money on designers because all their cans look like shit. Then again they have a pretty shitty logo too.

Consumed early March, reviewed from notes.
12oz can into snifter. Date on bottom says 1/27/14. If this is a "canned on" date then I've gotten a bad can.
A: Pours a hazy dark grapefruit color with a large and greasy off-white head that slowly faded into a bubbly airy film that left a network of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Super malty and faded with dirty hops, caramel, and biscuit dough. Faint citrus, faint tropical fruit.
T: Follows the nose with old old flavors of what was once probably a good beer. Hops are all but faded and this tastes like a slightly bitter malt bomb.
M: Medium body, soft carbonation, greasy, slick and drinkable mouthfeel.
O: Everything I've found online points to the date being a canned on date and not a best before date. Howevr, this beer tastes like it's after a best before date. Thanks for sending the tick, Paul, but I think I got a bad can. There's no way drinking a beer that was canned just over a month ago should taste this bad.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a generous amount white head which retains nicely and leaves heavy lacing. The nose has some odd aromas going on. The hops are piney and give off a hint of burnt plastic aroma. Light malt backbone is present. The taste is a bit sweet with some caramel and lemon with a ton of bitterness to follow. The finish is neutral with no real bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is somewhat heavy for style with high carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, not real impressed with this one.

Pour is golden orange with a bubbly white head and a good bit of lacing. Nose is overly sweet, heavy caramel malt, sweet hop and resin. Taste has a bit more depth. Grains are present but a bit stale and overly green. Malt isn't as sweet as the nose, hops also add some orange citrus with notes of grassy hops. Strong carbonation and lighter body with a sweet finish.
