16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, tangerine, floral, pine, light bread, grass, light citrus rind, and herbal earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of hop notes. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, pineapple, floral, pine, grass, citrus rind, bread, and piney spiciness. Nice amount of citrus and piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus rind, floral, pine, grass, bread, and piney spiciness on the finish for a while. Incredible hoppy flavor complexity and balance; with no cloying flavors present on the finish other than citrus bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a sticky and very crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible pale ale! Huge hoppy flavors with nice complexity; very smooth and crisp to drink. An insanely delicious offering as expected.

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!
