3.66/5 rDev -6.9%
16oz tallboy can, no clear canning date. Poured into a snifter 5/12/2014.
A- Slightly hazy & dark copper body, a bit darker than expected, with a two finger white head, some lacing.
S- Spent grains with a nice sweet caramel flavour, a nice stone fruit bite, some citrus and pine. Nice hop flavours, but overall not very aromatic in strength.
F- Caramel, grapefruit, tangerines, pine bitterness on the backend. Not complex but certainly hop-forward with a solid balance.
M- Medium bodied, good carbonation. Mildly bitter pine aftertaste that complements an otherwise dry finish.
O- Decent pale ale. In terms of local (to Madison, Wisconsin) beers, I definitely prefer Hopalicious by a good margin, especially as they both sell at a cheaper price point. Still, its canned format makes it a nice option for a nice cookout or trip to the beach.

4.54/5 rDev +15.5%
16oz can into a pint glass (16oz 6 pick for $8.50..WUUUTTTT????)
A - Body is pretty deep in color for an APA, a shade left of copper. Head is quite impressive - VERY stiff, with lacing sticking all the way to the finish.
S - Hops forward. I am a bit apprehensive to proprietary hop blends, but I feel like this one provides a great profile. Pine resin is there but it is balanced equally by some tart citrus.
T - Much like the nose, although the malt shows its face here as well. The bread dough and soft caramel hold tight to the finish while the hops bring home the mild citrus and faint fruitiness. This is what an APA should strive to be.
M - Carbonation is fair, on par with what I would expect for a pale ale. Body i quite viscous for a ~5% ABV, which I appreciate
O - I've been quite impressed with other Lucette beers I've tried, and this one is no exception. Quite an impressive APA from a small brewery, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for Lucette. I can see Lucette making waves in the Midwest craft beer scene someday.

poured 16oz can into snifter. Less than a month old since there is a limited supply that makes it to Madison.
A - Dark orange/rust with thick 2.5 finger white head with nice retention. Thick collar and a good amount of lacing.
S - Very well balanced. I get citrus, grapefruit, some orange pith, pine. Sweet bready malt and caramel.
T- It is resiny, with bitter citrus hops, mostly grapefruit. A sweeter bready and caramel malt brings the middle to a balance and it finishes with a pine bite and more grapefruit pith. Very well balanced.
M - Lighter body with a dry finish and good carbonation.
O - This is a very nice APA. And to think it is a six pack of 16oz cans for under $10. Ridiculous!

Poured into snifter glass.
Appearance: beer had a golden reddish orange hue. Completely opaque but not cloudy. Foam was presentable but broke down quickly. Plenty of lacings.
Smell: very tropical and flora aroma. Picked up plenty pineapple.
Taste: very bitter with notes of grapefruit. I anticipated it would be sweet because of the fruity aromas, instead its very earthy, grassy and bitter. Absolutely no malty sweetness shines through; the hops are the centerpiece. It packs that very nice bitter punch while still tasting like an APA, not IPA.
Mouthfeel: very light bodied and crisp.
Overall: this is a beer I could drink everyday. I love how the aroma and flavors contrast each other yet still comes together. Even better, it comes in 16 oz cans and sold in 6 packs for less than ten dollars!
