3.9/5 rDev -0.8%
Poured from 16oz can. Has a golden color with a two finger head that settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass.
Relatively straight forward and balanced aroma of citrus hops and bready malt. Smells more of oranges rather then grapefruit. Has a bready malt foundation that I prefer in my pale ales. Slightly more hop forward in flavor than the aroma led on. Orange and orange rind flavor with hints of hay. Slightly bitter finish.
Not a big beer and is nicely carbonated. The best beer I have had from Lucette. Also a pretty good value with a 6-pack of pounders for $10.

Into a fluted tulip glass it pours a bright saturated orange with slowly rising carbonation. A finger of foam on top, with a halo of delicate lacing in the glass. Swirling rekindles a fine skim across the surface, but the foam fades away fairly quickly with a collar of foam around the edges.
Bright citrusy hop aroma, fresh and green, slightly dank.
Moderate hop bitterness, citrus peel flavors, light pale malt, and a resiny feel that sticks to the teeth. Light bodied and very drinkable. Reminds me of a certain local favorite, Daisy Cutter, though with a more citrus based hop profile. A nice hoppy session ale, on the level of Indeed Day Tripper.

A: Fairly clear glowing orange golden color with a average off white head. Nice lacing.
S: Nice citrus, floral and slight tropical hops mixed with a nice pale, bready, carmel malt.
T: Really nice balance of citrus, grapefruit, ever so slight tropical/sweet hops with a nice malt backbone. The carmel/bready malt comes through a bit more on the backend and the finish is a bit dry with a nice mild hop bitterness.
M: On the lighter side of medium, average carbonation. Nice.
O: A really nice pale ale with good drinkability. Easy to drink, yet just complex and balanced enough to keep you coming back. Someone at Lucette said this is the same beer as Easy Rider, just rebranded now that it is in cans. I do remember Easy Rider being a bit sweeter with more tropical fruit flavors, though this is still really good and $10 a six pack tallboys is hard to beat.

Though I've had them mostly on tap, Lucette is moving towards one of those breweries who I'll try just about anything from. Pale Ale? In 16 oz. cans? Reasonable price? Done. One for me, one for my wife.
Pour is a nice, sunny (well, I can imagine I remember what the sun looks like) orange, filtered, looks very pale-like. Nose works like a subsistence farmer, some of the strongest floral hops I can recall sniffing, pale malt backing peels off, spare spices. Like.
Ride Again rolls over a well-traveled highway; the hot promise of the nose doesn't quite translate to the taste. Floral hops are only slightly bitter (still under 20, probably), & mingled easily with the pale malts on the tongue. Vague spices resolve into a more sinister batch of citrus. Easy to drink, this one should go down well on a hot day.
Nice beer that really started with a bang; if Lucette could can that smell, they'd have a stunner. As is a very good beer that I really warmed to as I worked through the glass.

Pours a light amber bordering on a orange with a half finger of head
Smell is citrus, bready, lemon and even a little lime,
Taste is a unreal balance between malt and hops, citrus followed by bready malts and so it goes, orange and lemon followed by a nice bready character which finishes with a slight piney dryness.
Mouthfeel is medium light with adequate carbonation
Well is comes in 6 packs of Pints cans!! No better system then that!
I can not fault this one really at all, everything a APA should be, perfect balance between hops and malt, really nice, would love to brew a clone of this bad boy, really great stuff here!

3.6/5 rDev -8.4%
Appearance: Amber, good head.
Smell: Caramel and citrus, a little bit of spiciness.
Taste: Moderate caramel and toffee flavors, balanced by a citrus rind bitterness.
Overall: Picked up a six pack as I've liked other Lucette beers. Wasn't as pleased with this one as the others, it leans a little too much to the English pale side rather than APA in my opinion. A little more malty than hoppy. It's ok.

A- pours an orange copper color, crystal clear. White head with good retention. Lacing is plentiful ringing the glass after each sip.
S- Big balanced grapefruit and pine and some mango. Malt comes through as well. Hops are very northwest.
T- starts out with pine and grapefruit along with some breadiness and mango notes. The finish is very hoppy, oily and drying but clean. Long finish.
M- light and appropriate carbonation is pleasing on the palette.
O- great American pale that is a great representation of the style: both hoppy and balanced, resulting in a drinkable offering. Excellent.

back visiting the folks in wisco. where i live, i ride my bike to russian river brewery. this beer reminds me of lagunitas pale ale which occupies a middle ground between a pale ale and an ipa. very clean. solid beer. I also tasted the rush river ipa style beer and the new glarus no coast pale ale. All beers are excellent! But this one stood out to me in comparison to my spoiled north bay palate.

I had this on-tap at Devil's Advocate in Minneapolis. Served in a standard pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a finger of creamy off white head. The head fades to a layer and leaves some lacing on the glass.
Smell: Mild but hoppy. The hops smell a bit green. I'm also getting just a hint of orange peel.
Taste: This beer has a very nice balance to it. Citrus peel hops with a grassy quality along with a nice toasted malt backbone. Slightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a finish that's a bit dry.
Overall: I liked the balance and the hop profile to this beer. Very easy to drink, I would definitely have another.
