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.

One of my GOTOs! Great pale ale, with enough ibu's to be considered an IPA. Easy drinking but full of flavor, slightly piney with citrus. Very solid.
