Appearance: a light orange with just a little bit of haze to it and a steady stream of bubbling. a finger of an off white head that slowly fades to a lacing on the sides

Smell: hops, both citrus and some pine. the malts are tough to discern

Taste: opens up with citrusy hops. toasted malts take over and mix with piney/spicy hops. ends up with a hint of lemon bread taste. very complex and tasty pale

Mouthfeel: pretty light and very refreshing

Overall: Wow. Thats a great pale ale. one of my favorites. Wish I could get more of these. great taste and refreshing as can be.

Thank you for this bonus can, SatlyMalty. Poured into a 3floyds tapered glass. No freshness date but there's a sticker on it from the liquor store that says 2/12/2013.

A- A perfect pour into the glass produces a plateau of head about 3/4 of an inch high that retains wonderfully before slowly decomposing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass . Somewhat resilient lacing leaves stalactites behind.

S- Light tinge of hops that are piney and citrusy. Some cracker-like malt with a trace of sulfur.

T- Tangy, almost metallic hop bite clamps down pretty hard for an APA. It's grassy, a bit tart, juicy and almost salty. Very vibrant, super enjoyable. Not a whole lot of malt character to balance, but that's OK since the hops are doing just a fine job on their own.

M- Bright and snappy with plenty of bite from the hops. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Although it drinks almost like an IPA, this is one killer Pale Ale that's sessionable and flavorful.

A: Poured a nice orangish color with good carbonation leaving a nice white cap and some lacing

S: Like a big fruit basket anf flower bouquet rooled up into one with light toasted bread

T: Big citrus and flowers with a light toastiness, juicy, loads of flavor. Very nice and very much a West Coast Pale Ale

M: Medium body, well carbonated, a little bit of slickness

O: Good overall

12oz can into a tulip. Pours a hazy copper w/ a big sudsy bright white head, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is nice floral and spicy NW hops with a nice clean citrusy edge.

Taste follows nose. Clean pale biscuity malt and bright floral/citrusy hops. Straightforward and very drinkable.

Mouthfeel is balanced and crisp.

Overall a really nice, clean, refreshing APA. Not sure why this isn't considered an IPA, but whatever. I'm also not sure why I don't drink this more often.
