Purchased at Vendome in Studio City, CA. Poured from a can into pint glass.

A - Honey, copper, burnt orange. Medium head and lacing.

S - Hoppy

T - Well-balanced hoppy APA. A slight bitterness with a clean finish. Most of the taste coming from the back and sides of my tongue.

M - Light to medium-light body with medium carbonation.

O - Perfect session beer! Always great to grab in a pinch, my favorite beer in a can :)

Poured into a becker glass.

Pours a hazy orange copper color. Has a fluffy off white head. Head settles to a full lace layer that stays the whole drink. Good lace wrapped around the entire glass. Great looking brew.

Brew smells of citrus and grapefruit hops. A little bit of biscuit malt. Good full bodied smell here.

Brew is tremendously balanced; slight carbonation initially then smooth middle finishes crisp and a little dry. Good hops flavors grapefruit, citrus, floral are all balanced beautifully by the pale malts. A nice mellow sweetness as well. Wow, great full bodied brew here with nice full flavors and mouthfeel. Very good stuff here.

A tremendous tasting and drinking APA. At 6.5% abv this one is a great session brew that makes it a standout APA. Great stuff here.

nabbed a can in jfk waiting for a flight. brew had a soft almost chestnut orange look with a thin frothy white head. lacing looked sticky. smelled of subtle pale ale with a kick of wheat and orange peel. easy drinker with a really nice hop presence. medium feel with a subtle bitter ending. one of the ultimates when it comes to pale ales.

Served on-draught into a non-imperial pint glass in high altitude Denver, Colorado. Reviewed from notes. Paired with an elk burger and some french fries.

A: Pours a one finger head of slight cream, decent thickness, and average retention. Colour is a clear copper.

Sm: Light hops and slight cream. A very light aroma.

T: Nicely hoppy, crisp, and pleasant, but lacking full flavour or complexity. It isn't layered, but features some light cream lacing undertones. Very light toasted malt. The finish isn't too bitter (fortunately). Built decently well, and balanced nicely.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with enough coarseness on the climax to bring out the flavours. Complements the flavour generally.

Dr: Drinkable and pleasant, but far from exemplary.
