4.1/5 rDev +12.6%
Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A real pale amber, almost yellow but just a sort of faint orange and really crystal clear body, with some faint cola rising bubbles. Three finger head forms and is shocking white, with some good retention but lots of varied sized bubbles.
Nose is really wonderful. Big tropical mush of mango and peach on this, it smells like a solid IPA more than anything. It sort of reminds me of Odels IPAs strangely.
Very light bodied, but just manages to give a nice depth in the palate from the nose. Juicy body with a little bit of wet, bringing light bodied fruit tastes and hop mellowness. Malt angle on this seems a bit buried here.
Overall though it's a super fun easy drinking beer, for a pale ale. And 4.5 makes it even more fun to drink!

A - A copper, clear golden pisnerish color beer. 1 finger of head and lots of sticky lace left on the glass all the way down.
S - Light malts, lemon, and hops jump out of the bottle after opening
T - Light and smooth, nice mix of hops and grains. Bready malts.
M - Mouthfeel is excellent. Well carbonated, very crisp. Nice bite at the finish. Well done
O - An excellent, very tasty, very hoppy session ale. I hope people rate this beer based on its style. It's very tough to make such a tasty, hoppy session ale.

Aroma is monumentally hoppy with a fruity undertone, a mixture of apple and sour orange - more like a double IPA than an amber ale. It pours a beautiful clear amber with a decent white head that leaves generous lacing. Malty flavor has a strong hoppy overtone, just a little bitterness, and hints of sour orange, grass and yeast. Texture has average body but plenty of fizz, leaving a nice tingly and hoppy finish that has a touch of yeast. Yes, definitely an enjoyable one.

On-tap at Barcade, Jersey City, NJ
A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy hops—orange and grapefruit seem to stand out in particular. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has a nice amount of hop flavors for an American Pale Ale.

Thanks to elCharderino (Reddit) for this interesting beer.
Pours a white fluffy and bubbly 1 finger head that fades semi slowly with lots of layered lacing, over semi hazy golden orange colored beer.
Nose has a really nice hop aroma, almost Gumballhead like but not quite, light fruity Armarillo, bit of citrus like with tangerine and nectarine peach like, little citrus, little grapefruit, an aromatic slight earthy hop.
Taste starts with a light malt base, touch of a reddish toasty malt and some pale malts. Then mostly hops, slightly earthy before changing to some citrus and fruity hops, little tangerine and peach like hop fruits, touch grapefruit, juicy, slightly grassy and touch spicy hop kick as well. Finish is fairly bitter and a bit dry with a nice floral grassy and slight spicy hop, long lingering bitterness, touch citrus and some malts.
Mouth is med bodied, good carb.
Overall fairly nice APA, nice hops that add good flavors without overpowering on bitterness, earthiness, or fruitiness, and the malts bring a nice flavor that also doesn't overpower or ruin the beer. Nicely balanced and drinkable, good flavors, well done APA IMO.

A - pale, transparent golden yellow with a loose, soft, white head that has a short-lived retention
S - spicy hop aromas
T - light malt body, spicy hop character with some faint herbal notes
M - light bodied, well carbonated
This is a rather simple beer, but it's refreshing and very easy to drink. It has just enough flavor and hop character to keep me interested. I probably won't have this again, but it was good to try once.

A - Actually a great deal of carbonation with tons of bubbles and a 1/2 inch of head that sticks around for quite a bit.
S - Nose actually has some mild citrus hops twang with a good deal of cracker malts.
T - Taste starts off malt forward with some cracker malts and toffee then quickly to an enjoyable level of citrus that gets your attention and hold it to the finish. Not too overly bitter and fades out nicely.
M - Light and crisp.
Overall this beats every light beer and most session ales out of the park. I just wish I knew a place to get a six pack since the single ran me 3 bucks.
