Can is at least 6 months old, so hops may have weakened.
Pours a fairly hazy apricot color with a solid one finger ivory head that dissipates, leaving significant lacing.
Aroma is instantly dominated by citrus fruit and resin. Orange, grapefruit, apricot, and bready caramel malt surface.
Flavor is tart citrus fruit and bitter pith, grapefruit, and resin, which are carried by a slightly bready malt backbone into a fairly bitter and peppery finish.
Body is moderate with moderately low carbonation. A hint of astringency is present.
Overall, an excellent pale ale. Would love to try it fresh. Good balance between hop flavor and bittering.

Pours hazed golden with a nice white head that thins. Lacing sticks.
The smell is of robust citrus with some pine, hint of floral notes. Some bready/pale male mixes in.
The big citric notes stay just ahead of the biscuity malt and bready notes. Most of the bready notes are from the firm malt backing, some have a yeast character. The combination works well, though. Finishes with a bitter bite.
It is smooth despite the raw bite in the finish.
This is an enjoyable, hop-forward American Pale Ale. I'm glad a bartender at a local pub brought two pint-sized cans back from his trip to Chicago for me!
