A west coast Pale Ale chock-full of dank, aromatic hops. This one's a screamer, hoard it.

Live review:
No freshness date on can.
Poured in a DFH IPA glass.

A (4.25) - Light and somewhat murky amber in color with at least two fingers worth of egg shell white, fluffy head. Lots of tiny visible floaters suspended in the glass. Moderate lacing left behind.

S (4.25) - Aroma of tropical and citrus fruit immediately hits my nose. Subsequent smells give way to pine resin, sweet and mildly toasted and cracker-like malts, and a dash of cracked black pepper.

T (4.0) - While I expected a heavy dose of hops here, the taste is quite balanced. Piney, grassy, and lightly fruity hops come side-by-side with toasted and cracker-like malts. Definitely get some peppery undertones as well. Pretty mild bitterness hits up front, but doesn't linger for too long.

M (4.25) - Pretty smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and moderate carbonation that fits right in with the style. Fairly dry finish.

O (4.25) - Definitely glad to have the opportunity to try this, thanks to the always generous CuriousMonk. The high drinkability is easily the highlight of this beer, and while the flavor might not blow you away, it's no slouch either. Very well balanced and one I'd certainly drink again if given the chance.

16 oz can poured into nonic pint could not find date on can

A: slightly hazy light amber color half inch head dissipates to a ring nice lacing on the glass as it goes down

S: very fruity pineapple some light peachy some bready malts

T: malty crackery with hints of fruit that linger a little not very bitter

M: A little watery finishes dry and crisp

O: This is pretty good but not worth going out of your way for it's lighter flavor makes it seem like you could drink several pints of this at a bar. I'd definitely grab this if I were out and wanted something light.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a small side patch of bubbly surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Citrusy, soily hop aroma with a moderate amount of malt backing. Slight tinge of booze.

T- Balanced flavor of fruity hops and decent malt presence. Bitterness is mainly seen on the front end and fades pretty quickly from there. Very drinkable. Bitterness gets a bit more powerful after multiple sips are taken.

M- Small hop bite with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Pretty good but I don't see why it has as high a score as it does. These guys really need to put some freshness dates on their cans since I have no idea if this is the beer at its best or not.
