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!

Consumed 11/30/13

Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-gold color - small, off-white head, fades to a small collar and leaves some nice lacing

Smell: Citrus and some pale malts, pretty standard for the style - floral and candy-like - candied oranges and grapefruits - citrus is kind of strange overall, seems oddly extract-based, almost artificial - some grass as well - pale, caramel, and what smells like a hint of amber malts

Taste: Bitter and hoppy, but the hop profile is rather strange - straight-up bitterness, oily orange and grapefruit rind - bitter, candied citrus pith - sticky, oily bitter aftertaste - malts are mostly caramel, with some lighter, paler notes and some more toasted notes - above-average sweetness, which doesn't work well with the bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation, smooth at first, but the sticky, oily aftertaste is really not what I'm looking for in an APA

Overall: Yeat?

There are lot of charming, easy-drinking American Pale Ales out there. This isn't one of them. This tastes like it kind of wants to be an IPA, but the hops are oddly candy-like and inexplicably bitter. I think some may appreciate this unique profile, but it's not really what I'm looking for.

Starts off a little aggressive, you can not help but think the brewer filled the contents of the 12 oz can with an IPA . The beer is very hoppy for a pale ale, through me off a little bit. Towards the end it started to develop a some what flat maybe slightly stale after taste . Overall this is a great beer and enjoyable. I wouldn't recommend this beer to someone who is not interested in IPA's, otherwise go get it...YEAT!
