Poured from a stovepipe 1 Pint 3.2 ounce can into a shaker pint glass, canned on 12-30-14, this may be the freshest beer I ever had not direct from the brewery.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear copper color with 1 finger off-white head that quickly dissipated to a thin broken layer of bubbles, this beer has higher level of carbonation for the style, there was a considerable amount of lacing on the glass.

SMELL: flowers, pine, bread, subtle on the nose.

TASTE: initially sweet caramel then a mild piney hop profile, there was some citrus notes as well.

PALATE: medium body and higher carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a good beer and reasonably priced at $3.99, it's almost an IPA with the hop profile, I prefer SN Pale Ale but this was enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys pale ale or IPA.

Pours a clear deep amber producing a billowy 3+ finger, offwhite, lasting head that leaves webs, streaks & rings of clumpy lacing. Aroma is heady sweet caramel malt with floral, pine & citrus hops. Taste is a toasty caramel malt balanced with pine resin & citrus rind & pith hop bitterness, only slight deviation from start to finish but bitterness becomes high octane immediately after the finish & dominates the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, clean, silky & smooth. Drying in the aftertaste. A simple straightforward IPA that is called a pale ale.

A rich pale ale perfect for hot summer days. One of those beers that really makes sense in a can.

I've been a fan of Oskar Blues but this one did not do it for me. Not a bad beer, but nothing special.
