473ml can poured into tulip 16/7/12 thanks Masterski and Sean9689 for the can

A golden amber with a heavy haze of tiny suspended particles, large soapy head falls rather quickly leaving some spider web lacing

S floral honey and lots of tropical notes, with some mango, guava, passion fruit, and some citrus and some caramel malt creating some balance, smells terrific

T a little rind I didn't smell, more floral and caramel notes, but less of the tropical aspect I was loving, still very solid but a small step back from the nose

M full for the color, just enough carbonation too keep it from feeling flat, and a lingering floral rind aftertaste

O great pale ale here, very well rounded with a great nose, it could use a few more bubbles but its a minor complaint. This is another example of .25 increments being useful

I could drink a few of these without getting board, wonderful session beer from a can that I wish I could get in my part of the world

A personal favorite of mine, either from the can or on-tap. Cloudy pale appearance, with a relatively mild but inviting smell. The taste combines multiple strong hops with its signature floral bite. Despite the relatively the strong bitterness, the mouthfeel is extremely smooth and mild, leaving the drinker with a smooth, balanced, palette-cleansing experience.

Wow they call this a pale ale but in all honesty this should be an IPA except that it is a little light on the body and mouth feel. The taste however is amazing for a top notch APA or IPA, beyond expectations. Grapefruite citrus, pine very slight lemon just superb. Another BIG plus is that you have this so well balanced true hop champion done right without too much ABV...amazing. One of the tops!

Drank from can, as instructed, so cannot comment on appearance or head. Scent is awesome though, notes of citrus, pine, and some nice funk. Taste is beautifully balanced, a strong hopped up pale ale, notes of citrus, grass, lemon, and a decent malt profile to back it up. Mouthfeel is just what I'd expect, if not a little on the light side, but its very well balanced. Really glad I picked this one up and is very refreshing on a hot day.

Thanks to makdeco for sending this one out my way. I've had it on tap before, but never from the can.

Beer pours a clear light-orange with a medium white head. The smell is really quite nice - the citrus hop burst is fantastic and there's some bready malt in there as well. The flavor on this is also quite impressive - much better than I remember it being on tap. It reminds me somewhat of a baby Heady Topper with a similar hop and malt profile, but not nearly as big of a flavor. It's very similar to the smell with a big citrus hop hitting you first followed by a nice bready malt character and then a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, I really enjoy this beer a lot. I feel like a lot of people talk about Daisy Cutter being overrated, but perhaps that's gone so far to the point where it's now underrated. I would certainly have another.

On tap at Hub 51

Appearance - Hazy dark gold color with a good amount of lacing on the sides

Smell - Strong Citrus Hops and Grapefruit notes with some malty and yeast scents.

Taste - Citrus Hops, Yeasts, Malts and Lemon Zest (A cross between a Pils and Summer Shandy). Very rich flavors overall, this made me want to have 2 glasses in a row!

Mouthfeel - Light bodied, refreshing, but the carbonation is a little too intense for my liking.

Overall - Great flavors that are slightly off-set by the feel. Still an excellent beer worth checking out if you ever get the chance to check it out
