Appearance copper orange hue large fluffy off white orange beige tinted head, very good retention going on with thin lacing between sips a bit sporadic. Aromatics mild citrus upfront pine mild biscuit malt sweetness overall very nice, pale ale. Flavor holds up nicely in the can I'm liking the floral, pine, and citrus hop flavors with light malts giving a biscuit bread sweetness to balance it all out this highly drinkable pale ale. Mouthfeel is medium bodied even solid carbonation goes down really easy with some slight oily resin feel going on. Drinkability, is great get some for the ball game or concert good for an all day afair.

Cask at the Atlanta Cask Ale Festival, dry-hopped with whole leaf Cascade.

Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a slight large-bubbled head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of bright citrus with good amounts of floral hops. There's also a good amount of grainy pale malt aroma with a hint of vanilla.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Robust pale malt flavors up front segue into good amounts of juicy grapefruit and lighter tropical fruit hop flavors. Midway through the sip there's the hint of vanilla that dissipates through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a solid thickness with soft carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall I didn't think this gained a whole lot from the dry-hopping and cask conditioning. A very solid beer that's worth a try however it's served.

Canned craft beer, what a concept, and I like it.

A-Golden copper amber with filtered clarity and a creamy white head that settles rapidly.

S-Pungent grapefruit hops and malts with neither taking the lead but leaving the impression of a good balance.

T-The balance comes through in the taste, with both the citrus hops and caramel malts present at the front, middle and end of the palate. Astringent bitterness at the extreme back of the finish. Pretty simple, but pretty decent. Crisp and refreshing.

M-Well balanced, medium, and lightly oily, but nice overall.

D-This is a very drinkable beer, bring it on....
