Packing for a move and doing one of these straight out of the can with leftover pizza. The ones I poured into a glass last night though are pretty much what you would expect visially for a PA: medium amber, clarified, bit of a head to it that went away pretty quick, but was impressive at first. Smells of grass, grain, malt, light fruit in the background (and yes I did totally crush the can up to my nose to pick that up). Aroma is quite nice. Flavor wise I don't know if I can express how well this goes with pizza, there's the graininess to it from the nose, and then fresh lime zest and bitter back end. Breaks away pretty clean, just leaving a slight lingering bitterness. Refreshing, and while light in the mouthfeel, is not empty or airy. I think they made the ingredients work well for them in this 5.8 single-hop pale; another win for the much-underrated Upslope. Overall, very good, perfect for day drinking. Try it with pizza. Or when moving.

Golden yellow body with plenty of lively carbonation and a thick, chunky white head. Wet grass, a touch of spice, and light malt grain aroma. Mild grain flavors with a spunky, bold hop bitterness. Medium bodied; fizzy; clean and dry finish.

An easy drinking beer, not very big on the hop aroma or rich malt flavors, but pleasing all the same. There's a mild tang and bite due to the hop bitterness and effervescence and a subtle fruity juiciness lurking in the background. Good and enjoyable.
