From a can bought back from SC. Bottled on date of 7/9/14.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow orange with a small white creamy head. Good carbonation. Was getting a citrus aroma, which oddly did not transfer to the mouth, coming off with more of a non citrus fruit mix. Taste was quite sweet, but leaving a sour bitterness throughout the mouth.

Reviewed from full phone notes taken at Mather Campground, Grand Canyon National Park, AZ.

A- 12oz bottle poured into a chalice with a hazy golden orange hue. The cap that builds on the beer is white and has a thick frothy consistency. The one finger crown has decent retention and falls to a thick ring and some bubbly islands. Webs of lace as well as drizzle and spots.

S- Definitely hop forward with a spritzy zesty citrus aroma of grapefruit and orange. Floral, spicy, stone fruit and pine tones as well. Pale grains sweets and yeast bread provide some balance.

T- As foreshadowed in the aroma this is a hoppy APA, not pungent juice bomb but I suppose moderate by todays standards. Hops lean toward the bitter zesty citrus and stone fruit characters with grapefruit, orange, lemon oil, tangerine and slight apricot. Also pine, floral and spicy hints. Slight malty and yeast notes of bread, cereal and light Crystal malts. Light sweetness.

MF- Medium bodied for the style with a puffy creaminess when agitated. The carbonation is smooth and crisp and at a moderately high level. Finishes with slight bitterness coating the palate.

Hoppy pale ale with a fairly intense zesty citrus edge to it. Not a pungent hop bomb with some malt balance but the 60IBUS are felt as hops are emphasized.
