I needed a six pack to take tailgating and saw this was local so I picked it up. Not too impressed.
A - Clear, golden. Nothing special but nothing to really complain about either.
S - Good hoppy smell. This has me optimistic that it will be on the hoppier side of Pale Ale's, which I like.
T - Total let down. I don't know how to explain it. The hops are there but there's something else getting in the way. They taste muted, even for a pale ale.
M - Good carbonation, refreshing.
O - Unremarkable, middle of the pack. At $12 for a 6 pack of 5.5% beer, I don't see myself buying this again.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.
A bit lifeless looking here. Dull. Murky amber yellow and brown, with barely one finger of off white colored head presented. Manages to settle and leave a pencil thin collar and puck. Not very good looking brew.
Nose though impresses with a big 180. Lots of pineapple and fruit hop action. Clean and juicy smelling with a nice sweetness and citrus aroma. Very nice and unexpected.
Aroma doesn't quite seem to translate into an enjoyable palate. Chalky feeling palate with a dirt and earth bitterness. Faint hint of mint on the swallow on the hop realm, but this is quite watery and wet for even a pale ale. Malt depth non existent on the mid palate. Quite carbonated mouthfeel a bit and nearly seltzery.
Not sure what happened here the beer has a great bouquet too bad it just didn't translate on the palate.

12 oz can courtesy of mwrecording pours a hazed copper collar with a creamy cap of foam that leaves sheets of lace, pretty nice...
Nose is caramel malts and light herbal hops. Leans malty with some nutty yeast.
Taste flashes some toasted malt first and finishes bitter and leafy. Not much hop flavor and the yeast is definitely apparent. Mouthfeel is fine, though a little astringent. Just ok.
