Clean amber pour until the bottom of the tumbles out a big cloud of yeast. If you like cloudy roll the can a bit before pouring. Otherwise don't pour the last bit at all. Huge off white head with good lacing. Retention is pretty good also..
Smell is really great. I could smell the floral resinous hops and some toasted malt from two feet away.
Taste is not quite up to the aroma but is about right for the low abv. Really good hop flavor but lacks the snap or bite of higher hopped beers of this style.
Mouthfeel is on the thinner side with a medium dry finish.
Overall an excellent APA with such a low alcohol content. A bit funky if you pour the yeast into the glass. (670 characters)

Slightly chill hazed amber colored ale with a medium sized white colored head.

Smells mildly malty with a herbal hop that isn't all that strong.. Mild tobacco leaf hop scent.

Starts out malty with a caramel and toffee flavor. Mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Over all a mild tasty pale ale. (297 characters)

This one was in a can and then served in an old school pilsner at Bar Gernika in Boise.

Beer is gold with a thick and clingy off white head.

Nose of caramel malts and pine. It has a classic APA nose.

Beer has some pine based bitterness, a touch of sweetness, a bit of grains and some crackers. It is balanced and fresh tasting.

Mouth could use a touch more heft, but it does allow for an easy drinking session type beer.

I had this one while sitting outside enjoying a nice 70 degree April day. Must say it hit the spot. (525 characters)

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium-light orange hue with a fair haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam with a nice lace left on the glass. Pretty attractive!

Smell: light aroma of citrusy hops with a touch of malt in the background. The hop character is nice, but there's a watered-down feel to the aroma which detracts a lot from its appeal.

Taste: malty with a bit of an extract-malt character and a little hint of graininess. Hops have a citrusy, resiny quality, although hop character is not super forward. Bitterness is light but smooth, which is nice.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with an effervescent and body-lightening carbonation. Pretty satisfying!

Overall: this beer just has a bit of a homebrew-ey quality to it. I don't hate the beer at all, but it seems like it could be cleaner. (857 characters)

12oz. Can

Pours a very nice cloudy golden orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, leaves some nice thick sticky lacing. The nose is slightly hoppy, nice touch of malts, very slight citrus note. The taste is hoppy, but alot of malts also, very slight citrus. Medium body, very nice dry/bitter finish. Overall a nice thirst quencher, more of a malty APA. (407 characters)
