12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, peach, melon, pineapple, floral, grass, caramel, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity of citrus/tropical hops and balanced dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, peach, melon, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, honey, bread, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, peach, melon, pineapple, caramel, honey, and bread on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and balanced dark/bready malt sweetness; with a solid malt/bitterness balance and no cloying sweetness after the finish. Pretty malty for a pale ale, but it doesn’t get offensive. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale ale. Good robustness and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12 oz can poured into a SA Perfect Pint glass.

A - good color. Kind of a sunsety goldenrod body with a white head. Good lacing.

N - peach flavors and some fruity hop notes followed by a little toasty malt.

T - not unlike the nose but a little... flatter maybe. The taste isn't that exciting but it is good.

M - fair body. Again it comes off a little unexciting.

O - very dede t pale ale offering. Would drink again.

Cheers!

Aroma: Low to moderate pear and lemon hop aromatics up front. There is a bready malt base in the background but the hop aromatics are forward.

Appearance: Hazy amber pour with a moderate white head. Head retention is good and leaves nice lacing on the glass.

Flavor: Nice tangerine, lemon, and peach hop flavors with firm hop bitterness. There is a subtle caramel malt base providing a nice foundation but the hop flavors and bitterness are assertive. Balance is to the hop bitterness. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste lingers with a powdery hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. No oiliness, astringency, or heat.

Overall impression: A hoppy American Pale Ale. Not sure why it hasn't gotten more love here. I found it to be easily quaff-able and enjoyable on a hot summer day.

12oz can

A) Pours with a finger thick head, slowly settles leaving a sticky lacing along the side of the glass. Slightly hazy bronze colored body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Citrus aroma. Slightly piney.
T) Hop bite is overbearing for a pale ale. The subtle malt helps to bring some semblance of balance. Piney.
M) Fizzy. Medium body on the lighter side. Chalky finish.
O) An OK pale ale.
