Poured a bit into a glass for look and smell, rest is out of the can

Pours a clear dark golden orange with a finger if of foam and moderate carbonation stemming from the center of the glass. Retention is pretty good, so is the lacing. Really good looking

Smells of floral citrus, mostly oranges and mandarin with a little bit of pine. Malt is very bready with caramel notes, finishes with just a little bit of alcohol

Taste is pretty close with the smell, very floral with similar hop notes. Orange citrus with moderate pine notes are held together with a strong caramel malt, finishes with a tiny bit of booze. Much heavier than in the smell

Feel is pretty heavy actually for a pale ale, alcohol is hidden pretty well and finishes dry.

Overall a really solid apa. I get the cult following, definitely going to take this one hiking

First Had: May 26th 2013

Great combo of pale malt/fruity citrus hops!

Had this brew awhile ago... was the second beer ive ever had. Pretty much became the reason I decided to learn more about craft beer. So glad I got to start out with a great tasting solid beer.

I got to experience this great tasting, pleasent, and enjoyable beer at the Friendly Spot Ice House in San Antonio, Texas. It pours hazey yellow, with thin white laces running to the finger width head. It has a real strong hop tatste for being a pale ale, not to over bearing though, goes down smooth, leaves your palte dry (wanting more). I think it is a halloween party in the can, becuase taste like a IPA in a pale ale's costume....
