This beer pours a hazy orange color with a big creamy head. The aroma is sweet and malty with a fresh hop note. The taste is initially bitter with a real sweet malty backbone. Alcohol is noticeable but not overbearing. The mouthfeel is full and lush with a carbonation bite. This is an easy drinking pale ale - now I know what the hype is about.

Beer poured from can into a Nonic pint shaped glass

A - Beer pours with a nice cloudy orange, copper colored body; nice one finger frothy white colored head formed; plenty of visible carbonation with moderate sticky lacing

S - Citrus/orange; pineapple; sugary; slight hop pine nose but very subtle; nice and sweet caramel malt nose

T - Sweet and creamy citrus hop taste; followed up with a dry and tangy hop taste; very good, not to light and not too strong

M - Creamy mouthfeel; what starts out as a regular flavorful hoppy APA, leaves behind a high dry pine taste; not bad at all, flavors are very well balanced and touch each end of the APA flavor spectrum, sweet caramel malt to dry hop taste

D - Overall, I thought this was a good drink; would make a great beer to have with a meal; nice creamy feel and good APA hop flavor; highly recommended to others

a: Right after I cracked open the can I noticed how full it is! Ive had beer in ball brand cans before, but this rocks. Maybe I was just lucky. Anyways this poured a hazy golden amber with an awesome bubbly beige head. The head was super soft and frothy like an ice cream float. Great retention.

s: The aroma is malty, hoppy, floral and deliciously breadlike.

t/mf: Hoppy and lightly bitey with a pleasant hint of caramel. The bready taste also leads to a kind of chewy mouthfeel that is full, sticky and wet. It is also lightly drying.

d: This is a full and well balanced brew from a can. You cannot tell it is from a can if you pour it and actually this one is great straight from the can. A very enjoyable pale ale. Too bad it is 9 bucks a 6er up here, but it is worth it I suppose.

It's great to see a craft brew Pale Ale in an aluminum can. The representative at the World Beer Festival gave me a six pack in a bag of ice for a presentation on Beers in the News for the World Beer Festival. Not sure why it was in the news but learned that a bottle versus a can is no different anymore . . . all of it should be poured in a glass. If I could find this in North Carolina, I would definitely buy it for parties, barbeques, etc. Not nearly as snobby if you bring your craft beer in a can. Don't let this one fool you, it's a very good choice.
