look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the can into a tulip pint glass.

A real serious looker of a pale ale. Crystal clear body, and glowing perfect copper amber, with nice minimal rising pinhead carbonation. Head is large, aggressive, but in control and builds large with good solid pinhead sized bubbles throughout, four finger tall, large retention and thick island clumping. Spider and soapy lacing is all over. One fantastic looking pale ale.

Nose is toasty, light grains and very dry. Some thrashing grains and ripped almost biscuit quality. Hop presence is not really large here or obvious, but with a large husky quality. If this is your thing, then things are going well.

Real interesting palate. Light bodied pale ale sensing malt, and sharp yeast. Hop finish a bit with a steely grapefruit character and bordering on metallic twinge. Good notes of soft hinting caramel and light sweetness. Dry grainy toasty aromas manage to escape tremendously making sugars/caramel downplay. Feel is borderline juicy but hits well with a good feel.

A large malty biscuity profile, and very unique pale ale. Real enjoyable one here.

I bought a can of this a long time ago and it has been sitting in my fridge ever since. I don't know why I've been ignoring it for so long. Perhaps it's because out of the dozen "sampling" beers I bought, this was the only can. Oh those cans.

The beer pours a very nice copper colour with a modest, two finger head. The head is very quick to dissipate. The beer has a very nice aroma, with citrusy hops making the beer have almost an orange-type smell. It has a bit of sweetness to it as well.

The taste is something else. When the beer first hits my tongue, I'm really unsure of what adjective to use to describe the taste. It is certainly quite hoppy with some fruity notes, but it tastes so much fuller, almost like a proper India Pale ale. I'm actually quite stuck on what words to use, but rest assured if I knew what they were, they'd be very positive.

The finish is very strong for such a beer, and it leaves a strong hoppiness lingering on your tongue for a good twenty seconds. The carbonation level is appropriate, leaving the beer with a little tongue-tingling goodness and a smooth finish down the throat.

Pretty good stuff.
