Can poured into a pub glass

Reddish amber, not opaque but not entirely clear either, no visible carbonation, thick 2 finger foam that settles into a frothy lid with nice lacings.

Hoppy with fresh grass. Fresh beer aroma.

Hops, malt and sharp hop bitterness in the finish. The bitterness lingers on the tongue. Medium , medium heavy mouthfeel.

Nice beer, strong hoppy finish.

Pours clear golden. Great head/lacing.

Smell is melon, papaya, green jungle. Very fresh and aromatic. Malty goodness.

Taste gives more melony hops. Very strongly bittered. Good stuff..

Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, and bitter.

This stuff is way too easy to drink, even though it could have been served a smidgeon colder (my mistake). Very good.

Poured from a 12oz can, canned on 01/10/13, and poured into my Deschutes tulip...

A - Pours a crystal clear amberish/orange color, with 2 fingers of cream color head. A little darker than I'm used to seeing a pale ale. Nice strands of lacing when the head falls.

S - Juicy hop aroma, and a honey carmel malt backbone.

T/M - Very balanced malt and citrus hop profile. Starts off with the carmel malts and then the great hop bitterness, followed by a resinous hop bitterness. I feel like it's slightly under carbonated, leanding it a smooth/creamy medium mouthfeel.

O - This is a really solid pale. As opposed to other pales that are bland and unremarkable, this one has character. Great malt profile, bolder that normal hops, somewhat slick mouthfeel, and very drinkable. If this was readily available to me, I think it would be my go to session brew.
