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.

Evil Twin's Hipster Ale was a difficult purchase. After all, it comes in a ridiculous can that immediately calls you a hipster just for buying it. But it's a pretty can. And it's made by a company I respect. So I went for it.

A- Pouring Hipster into a tulip, I love the color. It's what beer should look like. Kind of golden, kind of orange and just dark enough that it compares to other APA's that I'm used to. (I have been serving Hill Farmstead's Edward for the last couple of years, it looks similar). It has a nice white head that stays throughout the consumption.

S- A bit of pine, grass and touches of citrus. The more I drink it, the more I smell fruity flavors within.

T- At first, I'm met with a coppery bitterness. It's a bit sharp but fades nicely to show off a mix of bread and sweeter flavors. Again, fruit develops late. Mostly juicy citrus.

M- To me, this is where the beer shines. The mouthfeel is fantastic. It coats the tongue nicely and while the bitterness of the hops stays with you, so does the sweetness. The more I drink, the more I get at the heart of this beer and I like it. I find it difficult to drink just one.

O- Overall, this is one of my favorite current APA's. It's not as bitter and intense as some of the "hip" beers (Again, think Edward) but also not a wimpy pale ale trying to please everyone. Evil Twin has pushed the hops a bit, but still allows the malty side to shine.
