An orange/tan colored pale ale, this beer has a slight chill haze and a nose that offers some citrus, bread, and caramel notes. The foam level is good and it leaves a nice amount of lacing as you consume.
This beer has a flavor profile similar to what you expect for the style. Toasted malts, biscuits, caramel, pine, and bread greet the palate first, balanced by the flavor of citrus and peppery hops in the finish. You get some earthy character along with some floral and citrus hops and some peppery spice to keep it interesting.
This pale ale isn’t an amazing representation of the style, but it isn’t too bad and it’s got enough going for it to earn a small stamp of approval. The carbonation seems a little low and the overall taste doesn’t hit it out of the park, but it’s a decent offering nonetheless.

Traded gf for a single out of her six pack. Bought from Morgans Liquor store.
A&S: Semi-lively transparent copper colored beer. Head pour around a finger fades to nothing pretty fast. Specks of lacing. Aromas consist of sweet malts with somewhat of a citrus background.
T&M: Very bready, hops flavors are again citrus but not very present. Pale malty finish. Mouthfeel is pretty good; nice smooth feeling beer (around medium bodied) with a blunt carbonation.
Overall: Very average APA. not sure about the price so I can't comment on that, but I would hope this wasn't over 10$ of a sixer. This is really picky but the can were in aweful shape: spilled beer specks on the top of the can which would be a hard outside Crazy Mountain because of the plastic covering, on top of that the sides of the can and lip were super crusty. The later could be post-production, but I couldn't image the former being one.
