Holy smokes this beer is underrated. The perfect beer with fried food, pizza, nachos, or wings. This is my go-to Fight Night and Football beer.

Nice hoppy pale. Well balanced with malt. Little thin on the mouth feel.Light bitterness that lingers. Easy drinking. Quality pale ale.

Has a smooth taste that gets some hops towards the end, but it is blended wonderfully so it isn't at all, harsh. Drank it straight from the can.

Pint on draft at Dahlia's in Biddeford, Maine.

Appearance: Pours a transparent amber with a one-and-a-half finger cream head. Big rings of lacing on the way down.

Aroma: This beer had a slightly herbal, piney aroma along with a good malt base.

Taste: Follows the nose. Kind of an intermediary between a pale ale and an IPA. Slightly more flavorful than an average pale ale. Caramel, malt, herbaceousness and pine are all there.

Mouthfeel: Easy-drinking ale that still maintains some substance. Good daytime beer.

Overall: Solid stuff. Good everyday-type beer and a nice point of entry into craft beers for a lot of folks.

Too malty for my taste - murky.

Nice balanced profile. Like a really well-done homebrew. Can says "voluminously hopped", and it's hoppy but maybe not by VT standards.

Copper pour, thin white top. Mild hop and malt aroma. Same in the flavor. Pretty clean finish. Nothing to dislike here, but a little boring.
