look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with good clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Bready and caramel malts followed by fruity and citrus aromas.

Taste: Mmm, much more noticeable hop flavors. Tropical and citrus flavors with mild hop bitterness, chewy malts, light caramel too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, tingly bitterness, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty solid APA from the new north shore brewery out of Massachusetts. All their beers come in cans too, which is extremely convenient too. Will be looking for more of these in the future. (743 characters)

a very pretty hazy golden, orange in the middle, straw towards the outside of the glass. 3/4" head that leaves quickly but leaves lacing.
smell of lightly toasted bread, medium light malt,yeast, tangy hoppy note.
taste, pale malt, perfect compliment of hops
medium light body, medium carbonation
how does mediocrity earn a 4.25? sometimes you just want a perfect, simple pale ale and this is right on the nose (409 characters)

12 oz can from the brewery in a mixed sixer (only available on site) . Poured into a SAPP glass.

A - very pretty. Hazy golden orange. Nice and bright. Tan - white head about two fingers. Good lacing.

N - sweet and hoppy. Lemon notes. Kind of flowery.

T - follows the nose. Quite hoppy with grapefruit and sweet pine. Toasted biscuit background. A bit too hoppy to call really well balanced, but it isn't too unbalanced. Pleasant with some bite.

M - smooth. No surprises. Bit of an aftertaste but nothing bad.

O - very satisfying pale ale from my hometown. Cheers! (568 characters)

From the can. Spring 2015 I presume. No date. Sampled on August 15, 2015.

The pour is a cloudy looking light to medium amber with a big off-white colored head.

A little light toast in the aroma along with a mild citrus character.

Light to medium mouthfeel.

The taste begins with a similar toasted braded flavor and the citrus notes flutter around in there too. The bitterness is mild to moderate. (401 characters)
