3.4/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Shaker pint. Purchased at Albertson's (Jackson Hole, WY).

A: CLear golden-amber with 2-finger off-white frothy, mildly sticky-rocky head with decent retention and pretty good lacing down the glass.

S: THe aroma is underwhelming with mint and orange and lime citrus hops, light herbal character with bland pale malt and light caramel.

T: FLavor is also a bit on the light side with medium caramel note and tealike, herbal, minty and orange citrus hops. A reproduction of the nose, unfortunately not bringing anything new or different to the table than the aroma. No significant yeast esters or alcohol character.

M: Definitely fits the balanced, lightly bready, dry style of APA with light body and light-medium carbonation.

O: Upslope Pale Ale is a pretty so-so effort -- the hops are all over the place and the overall flavor and aroma are light. Not one that I will be excited to revisit.

A pale ale in a can that actually tastes good. This one's just a little better than the pale lager in my book, though I enjoy both. Very balanced, great for a picnic or a day at the lake.

A: 4.0 - Light gold color, with a tall, frothy, airy head.
S: 3.5 - Slightly grainy pale malt, with faint floral hops.
T: 3.75 - Sweet malt flavor with moderate bitterness and a nice floral, resinous hop flavor. Clean, malty finish.
M: 3.75 - Slightly creamy texture
O: 3.75 - Unexciting but decent pale ale. Could use more hops.
