16 ounce can, guess this was canned within the past week or 2. It was the most recent batch they received at my local store this week. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head that stayed around for a long time. There's a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (grapefruit) and pine hops, along with some light tropical fruit. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some light blueberries and sweet malt. However, this brew is all about the hops, it really is a "Super Pale Ale" like it says on the can. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. It's a good selection to be one of their first canned brews. Hopefully they'll keep canning this one, I'd buy it again. $9.99 a 4-pack.

Absolutely love this pale ale ! Clean, crisp, refreshing, juicy, hoppy and crushable ! So delicious . . . always an option for me. Hands down the best brew Seventh Son offers at the moment. Underrated and always available.

Fom a can.
Clear golden with a decent head.
Flavor: Hop forward with enough malt to tame the bitterness (mild).
Both hops and malt are amped up just a little bit.
Body is a tad watery.

Really enjoy this. Nice crisp APA. Very clean and dry. Mosaic really shines through, and there's a little tart, maybe the blueberry. Would be a nice go to if I could get more often. Crushable pint can.

a - brew pours transparent orange yellow with a few fingers of frothy head that had nice staying power and left milkshake like chunks of lace on the glass.

s - nose is crisp, yet tropical hopped pale. good crystalized malt backbone compliments the hop nicely. smells ready to be drank!

t/m/o - soft topical hop washed over with a bitter blast. light bodied and easy drinking. very tasty pale ale on the hoppier side of the spectrum but there is no confusion that this could be an ipa.

Served from a fresh keg into a shaker pint.

Pours a light amber color, slightly darker than expected. Quarter inch head, with good lacing throughout.

Good smell--initial citrus burst, followed by slight bittering smell. Would have though this was an IPA by smell alone.

Taste brings grapefruit, mango--simcoe or mosaic hops, maybe. Taste not as strong as the nose would indicate. Slight pepper. Very balanced--not super bitter or resiny. Doesn't attack you with flavor, and lingers wells on the palate.

Mouthfeel is light, and goes down very smooth. Easy to drink more than one of these. Flavor might not stick as long as anticipated.

Overall, a strong initial offering from Seventh Son--my favorite of what I've tried. Will return to this one.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives with a slightly hazy amber color capped by a nice head that delivers some lacing

Smell: Vague hints of grapefruit and tropical tones

Taste: The malt provides a fairly neutral platform for the hops which are more tropical than grapefruity; papaya and pineapple flavors dominate through the finish with just a bit of residual sugars in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A pretty decent pale ale with a twist in the hop profile

Had this on tap at the Seventh Son brewpub in Columbus. Medium amber color with thin head. Aroma is loads of fresh hops. Flavors are light on malt, but heavy on the hops. It’s almost too much, but not quite. Light to medium mouthfeel with a fairly dry finish. Enjoyable pale ale with a kick. If you like hops, you’ll like the Super Pale ale.

Slightly hazy Amber color with a thick rocky white head that laces the glass great. Nice looking beer! Vague hints of grapefruit, pine and breadiness from the malt. Grapefruit punch up front, piney, slight tobacco in the finish. Nice carbonation and a medium body and semi dry finish. Overall this is a good pale ale albeit one that doesn't bring to the table anything that's overly different or great but it's straightforward and very good.
