3.7/5  rDev -2.4%

Hazy golden color with two fingers of head that slowly settled to a thick cap. Thick lacing is left down the glass.

Interesting hoppy aroma. A combination of tropical fruit, strawberries, and forest floor. A little dankness as well. Not getting anything from the malt.

A little bit of sweetness and toasted notes from the malt that balances the bitterness and the fruity hop flavors. A blast of Juicy Fruit upfront with notes of berries and evergreen. Unfortunately there is an astringent aftertaste that does not leave an appealing departing flavor.

Light body and nicely carbonated that is lively yet giving a creamy mouthfeel that lets the flavors develop.

Other that the odd aftertaste, this is a very solid pale ale. I would have no trouble downing a few cans of this.

A-Deep bronze color

S-Very fragrant aroma....very fruity....berries...tropical fruits...lightly floral

T-Loads of ripe sweet berries....blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, even hints of elderberries....also some notes of peaches, and tropical fruits like mango and papaya. Toasty malt lets the hops shine but lends a nice dimension as well.

M-Carbonation...body....close to spot on for the style...maybe a bit thin on the finish even for an APA but splitting hairs..

O-This is a great pale ale loaded with flavor. Highly drinkable and at 5.0% it carries the same booziness as a Bud. Great sessionable beer with flavor.
