4/5 rDev +26.2%
Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Hazy burnt orange, slightly pale yellow. White head calms to a film, nice rings of lacing.
Aroma: Mostly a malt experience with orange and lemon peels.
Taste: A balance of sweet malts transitioning to a tangy, bitter hop finish. Good lemon peel presence, tastes very citrusy.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.
Overall: Definitely tastes like a summer beer, with excellent citrus notes.

A - Poured out a clear, golden/orange color with a small white head of bubbly foam. It left thin sheets of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled of citrus and some pine. Light caramel nose.
T - It tasted of citrus - mostly orange. Some nice toasty malt with a touch of bitterness.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.
O - This is a nice APA. Empyrean does some really nice beers.

2.9/5 rDev -8.5%
A- Short white head on top of a micro-sediment filled straw golden body. A collar and a little head retention remains throughout, also speckles of lacing along the pint glass wall.
S- Corn, breadiness. Slight hop aroma.
T- Follows the nose to a "T". Very bready. Pretty bland really.
M- Medium mouthfeel, somewhat creamy actually. Soft but adequate carbonation.
D/O- An easy drinker that the macro fans would enjoy. I wouldn't necessarily classify this as an American Pale Ale but I'm not sure where else it belongs...cream/adjunct ale? If you're downing craft beers on a 100 degree day, this one is worth a try...otherwise, pass.

Picked this up on a clearance for $3.50 a six pack. The owner said he was just making room for the next offering and the beer was handled properly (I asked why it was cheap.) Still paid too much.
The smell is off. Baby food. Smashed peas. Canned vegetables. Vegetable broth. In other words, not appropriate beer smells.
The taste is not much better. Awful corn / baby food flavor. They inform / warn you of this on the label. As if to say, "We love DMS!" It is truly a confused, heinous combination of flavors.
I get nothing citrus, summer, or the least bit enjoyable from this beer. It was a drain pour. There's nothing pale ale about this. It tends more towards a confused cream ale than anything else.
