look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A clean golden amber in color with 2 fingers of bright white head, excellent lacing and slow dissipation. Smells citrusy, grapefruit, caramel and bready. Flavor is fresh as hell.. Tastes like you're sucking on a hoppy bread .. Crisp mouthfeel with higher carbonation and a refreshing lighter medium body. Overall this is a wonderful pale ale.. Wish we got it here in nj, I'd make this a summer staple.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 9/27/2013. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light caramel, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine/floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hop and pale malt flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale ale. Good balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.84/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: slightly hazy golden / light amber with a medium sized white head. Very nice looking lacing.

Aroma: malty, fruity, notes of citrus. Refreshing, yet a bit too delicate. Was expecting something more intense tbh.

Taste: mostly citrus, resin and grapefruit. Also a bit floral, with some pine notes in the back. Nice malty base. Pineapple finish. Medium, grassy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation.

Overall: Very enjoyable, yet a bit "standard" pale ale I guess. Would be better if the ABV was lower, like 4,5%. Still, worth recommending.

3.34/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

12 oz can served cold.

Pours medium amber with a toweriing, frothy, cream-colored head. The head is very durable and leaves globs of sticky lacing.

Definitely tastes more bitter and less malty than it smells, with the hop combo proving complex and fruity but slightly in the nose. The flavor, with a solid grapefruit peel bitterness in the lingering aftertaste. Markedly bitter and hoppy for style, this will work as an IPA.

O: overly bitter in the finish and aftertaste.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Packaged on 9/27/2013.

12oz can served cold. Poured into a shaker pint.

Hipster ale is a slightly hazy pale orange color with thick rocky head. It has good retention and leaves some spoty lace behind.

Aroma is pleasantly hoppy with lots of nice floral and tropical notes.

Flavor is more intensely flavored than I expected from the nose. It's got great hop bitterness and the same tropical fruit character that I noticed in the aroma. Malts are present but only to provide a backdrop to the hops.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body and nicely carbonated.

Definately a session style IPA or extra pale ale to me. More bitter than balanced.
