Pours out a caramel colored iced-tea body with some scattered carbonation and a thinnish head. Aroma is of fruity esters, caramel malts, and piney/woodsy/earthy hops. Flavor is a pleasant mix of fruitiness and caramel/tofee up front. The hops kick in the middle and give a nice, balancing bitterness that lingers on a while but never go too far over the edge. Very earthy and piney. Mouthfeel is moderate in weight, not at all sticky (although there is some sweetness to the beer) and has a mellow but assertive carbonation. Solid drinkability.

A: Poured a dirty coppery-orange with light marzen highlights. A modest 2 finger creamy, ivory-bone colored head sits atop displaying good retention while leaving a spiderweb like lacing on the way down. Visible carbonation appeared fairly strong.

S: The nose had a big, fresh citrusy nature to it, with some some bready malting. Fresh pine and sweet caramel also linger about.

T: spicy citrus hops of fresh pine brought about by a brisk and strong carbonation factor. Sweet caramel, bready with some piney hops make for a classic example. I thought I detected faint traces of my favorite C hop Columbus in there as well giving off a pungent flowery taste. Classic by example, crisp with a big dose of hopping.

M: crisp, well carbonated with a lively carbonation bringing out the bright citrusy nature of this drink and leaving a nice tingly sensation behind.

D: A crisp, lively and very drinkable APA that is conviently packaged in a can that enchances transportability while not hindering drinkability or flavor. Six pack worthy.

App- Pours copper with a sticky 1 inch head. Moderate lacing.

Smell- Spicy hops overwhelm the smell. Just a bit of caramel smell in there as well.

Taste- Balanced between spicy and grassy hop flavor, with a maltiness lurking behind. The hops do more to the flavor than imparting bitterness, but there is some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Crisp, but leaves that bit of bitterness in the aftertaste which makes it not one for downing quickly. Carbonation and body both in style.

Overall, an excellent pale ale which gives a good accounting of itself, and is balanced without becoming too hop forward.

Amazingly tasty Pale Ale from a can. If you like American Pale Ale beer give this a try as soon as possible. Pours amber with a good white head and plenty of white lacings. Hops rule this brew and a good amount of support from the malts. One of the best beers from a can ever! Mouthfeel is very good. Overall a fine Pale Ale.
