look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Poured out of can into regular beer glass. Beer was canned on 10/15/13. Pours amber with a huge 3 finger, thick white head. Lots of bubbles. Lots of sticky lacing as well.

Aroma: Strong hoppiness, especially for a pale and some bready malts in the back of the nose. Grapefruit rind, citrus, coin, bread, piney.

Taste: Crisp pale ale. Quite hoppy but not overly hoppy for the style. Grapefruit gives way to a bitter bite and slight malt presence. Mint, and floral notes also present. Bitterness lingers a bit.

Moutfeel: Medium to light bodied. Lends itself well for the style and bringing the flavors through the mouth.

Solid pale ale. You can't go wrong with this beer. Great to bring tailgating or to outdoor events etc. Drinks well out of the can as well.

Tried a six-pack on my son's recommendation, against my better judgement. This is a very bitter, metallic-tasting brew. There are strong hints of pine, and frankly my first instinct was to spit our the first sip. This is typically a very high priced beer, although I found it at my grocery store substantially discounted.
