3.5/5 rDev +2.6%
Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.
A dull orange and apricot body, slightly cloudy a bit with minimal carbonation. Minimal retention on a big off white head that forms three to nearly four fingers tall. Soapy retention, and settles to a big bubbled puck and eventually a thin bubbled collar.
Grainy nose with a bit of mild acridity. Very quiet down here, not much else to detect either, malt or hop wise. Not awful, but noting worth getting excited about either.
Palate matches some of the subtlety and quiet character of the nose. Small grainy finish, with a minimal depth of malt character even for a pale ale. Slight juiced orange character with a bit of good stinging carbonation on the tongue.
Comes across as a decent basic everyday American pale ale.

12oz can from ThatCracker (thanks man). Canned 2/14/14. Served in a Terrapin goblet.
Pours hazy amber with two fingers of pale head. A frothy cap lingers, leaving a good bit of lace.
Smells of floral hops, spice and a little bread. Meh.
I get a strange combination of flavors. Earthy hops, an almost nutmeg-like spice, bready malt, hay and vague citrus zest.
Fairly thin body with plenty of carbonation. Old hops, citrus pith and bread linger in the finish.
This was not at all what I look for in a pale ale. The earthy spice and iverly floral notes just turned me off. This was brewed for someone else.

Ray/Ray's strikes a great balance between heavy earthy notes and lemon. Easy to drink and only slightly (pleasantly) bitter on the back end, it is a great representation of a true Pale Ale. Pours nicely with relatively small head but good lacing on the glass. Nice earthy aroma with a hint of fruit on top. Overall, very impressive outing. It should be noted they have added a canned distribution with some smart marketing art which is initially what caught my eye.
