A: Pours a slightly hazy golden apricot/peach in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some hints of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a half finger thick mottled pillowy surface covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of tropical fruit/pineapple, citrus/tangerine, and pine hops with a lighter aroma of slightly sweet grainy + caramel malts.
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of sweet grainy and caramel malts with a lingering sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of tropical/pineapple, citrus/tangerine, pine, and herbal hops which impart a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with just a hint of dryness in the finish.
O: Super easy to drink and refreshing - if this was available where I lived, this would be my go to beer for the summer (cookouts, tailgating, etc). Very enjoyable and one I highly recommend for the sessionable APA style.

To be honest, I don't know if this pale ale is unique or tasty enough to stand out in a "packed division" so-to-speak.
In my opinion, pale ale's seem to be a dime a dozen, but every so often one will stick out - a diamond in the ruff.
This, unfortunately, isn't one of them.
I would absolutely drink one of these if it was offered...!
...and I certainly wouldn't complain if it was one of a few choices to pick from (as it does taste okay and it's quite crisp and refreshing)...
...but it isn't one that I would actively seek out to satiate my beer thirst.
Salute! Cin Cin! Evviva!

Worst beer I've ever had. It tasted like tree sap! The smell and after taste wants you quit drinking. Who in the world would spend money on this. Yes the name says it all.... you have to be a warrior to finish drinking it! Barf barf barf barf puke puke puke.
