Poured to a nice white head, fairly dense, with mild lacing and retention. Heat about 1 finger. Appearance was a golden honey color, near to orangey, with a dense and cloudy hue. Aroma was a pronounced floral and citrus with some yeast and hop thrown in. Taste was very floral and hoppy with a bitter and grainy to grass finish. Medium mouth feel with a dry aftertaste.

truly one of the best beers i have ever had that doesnt include barrels, bacteria cultures, and multiple years to make. its downright flawless, and its simple elegance yet robust flavor profile makes it an absolute champion in my book. this is the kind of beer i like to drink, and like to drink a lot of. a pale ale that doesnt bore, its wonderful. hazy yellow in color, whipped cream topping three inches high on top of my schooner. the nose on this shows citra hops, pungent and lemon forward. the rye malt is subtle in smell, i get maybe a bit of wheat in with the two row here. the taste shocks me for the color, it has some density and probably should look a bit more copper and dense than it does, impressive. furthermore, the flavors are genius. the citra hops are all on the finish, while the front end is peppered with spicy rye malt, but only just enough for this to be different. the other base malts keep it in line with what we expect from a pale ale. the hopping comes as a surprise too, not often are both grain and hops so bright in a beer at the same time, and that is part of the beauty here. sessionable as they come here for my palate. i could drink ten of these and be neither sloppy drunk or bored. the citrus profile of the hops finishes the beer clean, but its still got this lush creamy body that is refreshing and quenching and just addicting. i wish this was available out here all the time, and maybe it well be soon, but this is one of the best pale ales i have ever had, and deserves to be mentioned among the best examples of the style. its everything i could want in a session beer.

12oz can ~$1.50. Super huge head and a very cloudy and murky yellow appearance. Aroma is sort of spicy, wheaty, must be rye. Odd flavor which must be the rye. I found nothing special about this beer and would even go as far as to say that it was funny tasting. I would not purchase this again.

A- Had to knock this because of ridiculous head in the pour. Three finger head with good retention. Murky golden in color, white fluffy head.

S- Smells like a rye wheat beer. This is very light.

T- Light rye, the pale ale itself is really light and easy to drink.

O- Another session can from Westbrook.
