Medium sized biscuity and slightly off white head slowly dies into a nice lacing above a clear honey golden colored beer.

A light aroma consisting mostly of citrus and pine aroma hops with a little bit of lightly roasted caramel malts sneaking in.

A light sweet taste mixes with some of the light citrus and pine hops taste with some added very light yeast aspects sneaking along.

An almost dryish aftertaste with some of the sweet malt tastes hanging around with this medium bodied beer.

This beers taste is a light on the lighter side, I kind of wish it had more of these same tastes present but in abundance.

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.

thanks to Jaap for this one!

A: pours a bright golden, color with fairly high transparency. pour created a little bit of head with a some mild lacing.

S: nice blast of citrus, lemon zest, maybe even a little bit of tropical fruits in there as well. all of which sits quite nicely with a nice hop spice.

T: i was expecting different. there is a nice roasted malt note that comes forward that was not present in the aroma. a bready/biscuit note and the the citrus is still there along with some other mild fruits and nice hop kick. the finish is more of the roasted malt

M: very light on the tongue. nothing much really left on the palate other than a touch of bitterness and a slight dryness

O: decent brew. the drinkability is very high and it would definitely be a brew that i could kick back all day.

Had on tap at Greenlake bar and Grill.

A: The beer was a clear golden color with a foamy white head on top, about 1.5 fingers in height, rather thick though. Great head retention lasting for at least half the time it took the drink the beer with nice lacing formation.

S: Some light citrus fruits and a little bit of pine as well, slightly earthy. Faint grainy malt fills in as well.

T: Grainy malt upfront with a bit more citrus than pine throughout the flavor profile coming through as lemon and orange with a bit of grass.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: A fine APA, a little on the weak side for my taste, but overall ok. Would prefer to drink interurban IPA.
