12 fl oz. can, with a date on the bottom of the can 09/28/2012. Not nearly as fresh as I'd hoped, especially at the ridiculous price, but I'm still keeping an open mind. Expectations are still moderately high based on how well I liked the Evil Twin Istedgade Hipster Ale.

Poured into an over-sized wine glass.

A - Pours a bright light straw / golden orange colored body with a decent amount of sediment floating around the glass. Three fingers of tall fluffy creamy white foam. Looks pretty nice to me.

S - Smell is faintly subdued underneath the giant head, but smells of dusty malt, lemongrass, creamy caramel malt, and earthiness come out.

T - Taste follows the nose: lemongrass, caramel malt, dirty herbal earthiness, tea leaf sweetness, and faded grapefruit hop bitterness.

M - Feel is smooth and clean with mild earthy bitterness lingering on the palate. Dry and grassy.

Overall, a decent pale ale, although I would much rather try it again fresh. The flavors and the beer itself have held up just fine though, I would say, but turned out to be rather ordinary and anti-climactic, especially for damn near $18 for a six pack.

A-Pours a hazy orange color with a decent sized head. Head is creamy and quickly deflating but it laces consistently.

S-Relatively mild. Some candied citrus and tangerine. A bit of grassy hops. Some buttery bread malty tones. Really quite dull and balanced.

T-The flavor brings out more citrus and grass with a breaded malt and a soft sweetness. I enjoy it more than the nose. The malt actually is more appealing than the hoppiness.

M-Drinks very easy. Soft bitterness. Inviting carbonation.

O/D-This sixer goes for around $14 per. Laughable price for a standard pale ale. Great looking can but damn, I'm happy I only copped a single.

Nice light Pale Ale, with the portability of a can. Lower abv, good strong bitterness and flavor. ideal for when you are in the outdoors, as a lawnmower beer or a session beer.

Pours somewhere between a light orange and a pale, straw gold. Big frothy white head, good retention and lots of spotty lacing on the pint glass.

Good strong aroma (piney and citrus hops) and flavor. The flavor is more balanced. The piney hops/citrus hops are balance by some bready/biscuity dry malts. It is definitely hop forward but the balance is real as well.

Mouthfeel may be the best part. Crisp and surprisingly rich for a 5.5% beer. There is a touch of piney hops oiliness that goves over real well too.

A very good APA.
