4.11/5 rDev +12.6%
Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy unfiltered copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of soapy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A bright and crisp aroma of earthy and citrus hops with biscuity malt. Earthy hops upfront with hints of pine spice, grass, and citrus orange, pineapple, and lemon. Fairly floral with herbal hints. Pale malts with hints of biscuit, grains, yeast, cracker, and slight caramel. Nicely balanced and crisp. A pretty solid pale ale aroma.
Taste: Follows up the nose with a nice crisp and refreshing taste of hops and bready malt. Earthy hops with notes of spicy pine resin and grass. Floral and herbal hop notes. Citrus hop esters with notes of orange, lemon zest, pineapple, and a little grapefruit. Bready pale malt balance with notes of biscuit, grains, yeast, toast, cracker, and a little caramel. A very well balanced taste. Solid.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and very smooth. Finishes somewhat dry.
Overall: A pretty solid take on the American Pale Ale style. Good balance of hops and malt as you expect.

Clear, dark golden color with two fingers of head that settles to a thick cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left down the glass. The aroma is a little timid but there is a lot of caramel malt with dank, citrus hops. Well balanced flavor. Plenty of malt sweetness and flavor to carry the hop flavor and bitterness. Nice caramel and toasted malt with dank citrus flavor. Outstanding body. Very gently carbonated really gives this beer a full and rich mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised by this beer as I was hesitant to buy another Big Wood beer after the very lackluster Morning Wood. Glad I was talked into it.

Pours slightly hazed golden amber with a creamy head that leaves lacing.
The smell is of bread/biscuit with some pine and floral notes.
The taste of biscuity pale malt and some caramel is balanced with piney, floral hops. A sweetish start finishes with a floral dryness.
It has a creamy, smooth medium body.
A nicely balanced, easy drinking pale ale.

Serving type: 16-ounce can. No freshness date.
Appearance: Poured into a nonic pint glass. The color is orange-amber that is very hazy, almost cloudy. Two fingers of dense, eggshell-colored head settled slowly, leaving lacing along the glass, a bubbly and spotted froth, and a ring of foam around the edge.
Smell: Lots o’ malt upfront. Caramel, toffee, and lightly toasted malts. It also has a nice butterscotch aroma, as well. There are hints of fruit on the tail, but nothing prominent. Grapefruit emerges gradually, but is also not very prominent.
Taste: The first sip offers faint grapefruit/tangerine citrus and coarse bitterness — a complete reversal from the aroma. The citrus remains present throughout the pint, hanging around in the background to influence each sip, and eventually gains prominence. The bitterness is not over the top, either; it is balanced well with a lot of caramel, toffee, and butterscotch. There is also a little spice at the end, which is a surprise. I am thinking rye but could be mistaken.
Drinkability: Solid! This is good, tasty drinking.
