This beer is under rated, should be a world class beer. The aroma coming out of can rivals heady, the look rivals hill farmstead, and the taste is phenomenal

12 oz can poured into a SAPP glass.

A - pale, hazy goldenrod color that is lighter at the thinner bottom of the glass. Very little head at all. Lots of sediment (which I don't care for).

N - very hoppy with sticky, resiny wet smell.

T - hops are still dominant but with a decent malt background, including the promised rye.

M - chewy and much thicker than anticipated. I guess I should've predicted that from the smell.

O - good taste but the presentation, particularly the sediment, I did not care for. Cheers.

Had this one straight from the can. The Westbrook name carries itself pretty well but this is seriously a good beer. The hops jump out of the can, and the rye seems to marry well with the smooth balance of malt that follow the hops. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium carbonation. I am a big fan of this beer--I love hoppy pale ales and this is what I look for another One Claw

A 12oz can with an unreadable BB date (smudged). ABV is stated as 5.5%. Purchased a little while back from Trembling Madness in York.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Can conditioned. A hazy golden-amber hue with plenty of chunky sediment and light carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of sweet malt and intense hops with hints of pine, weed, citrus, grass/hay, grain, earthy yeast, a twinge of rye and stewed hops. Lovely.

T: Tastes of bountiful aromatic hops with a sharp bitter finish. Notes of pine resin, dank weed, orange peel, mild grapefruit, citrus, grass/hay, grainy malt, pepperiness, earthy yeast, a hint of rye and stewed hops. Slightly sweet, followed by a strident hoppy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with soft carbonation and good body. Pretty astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of piny aromatic hops, bitterness, earthy yeast and mild grain.

O: A tasty American pale ale that goes down a treat. Looks OK, while the aroma and flavour are wonderfully hop-laden. Grainy malt and yeast notes provide a subtle backbone. Decent body - could be a tad livelier. The rye is quite subdued and not much in evidence. A hoppy brew that packs a punch; worth sampling if you chance across it.
