Poured from can into a shaker glass...
Pours an amber/gold, not quite crystal clear but not hazy. Active carbonation with one finger head that slowly receded to nice lacing and a foam cap on the beer. Sticky foam on the sides too.
On the nose, hops, sweetness, pine, citrus, grains. Nothing out of the ordinary.
First taste surprised me. Does not taste like many other APAs I've tried so far. Hoppy, resin and pine, with a fruity/citrus taste and a sweetness from the grains. A little toast in there too. Little bit more going on than I expected and a pleasant surprise.
Decent mouthfeel, medium body with a bitter, toasty, dry finish. Crisp, with a bit of carbonation.
Very drinkable brew, sessionable if need-be. It has a little different taste that some other APAs I'm familiar with but there's nothing here to stop me from ever having another again. Kind of upper-middle of the road in the style (against others) to me. Non-the-less, I enjoyed it.

3.78/5 rDev -3.1%
Pours a clear amber with a thick frothy off-white head. Good retention. Some chunky lacing. Some carbonation
Smells of bready and caramel malts. Big resinous pine hops. Fruity citrus hops. Some floral leafy hops too
Taste follows suit. Caramel malts balanced by citrus and pine hops. Some metallic element to the taste as well
Feels full. Spicy and resinous
Overall a nice pale. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nicely balanced. Goes down smooth. Tastes good
