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

Poured from a 1 pint 8 oz. can into a Blue Hills pint glass.

The color is an orange/amber with a finger or two of foamy white head that does stay for a short time leaving some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is fruity with some slight citrus aroma mixed with a little sweet pine in the nose. There is a nice freshness here that has a promising hoppy aroma without giving too much away.

The taste is slightly hoppy at first giving off just enough of a bitter pine presence before allowing the sweet malt flavor that really gives this beer it’s backbone. A bit of a bready flavor that balances well with bitterness that comes back toward the end with more pine and touches of tangerine and a slight twang of earthy flavor that is bitter and blunt at the same time.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkable feel Like a more good pale ales this beer is a good standard beer to have, well balanced with the right amount of hops to gives a hit of bitterness over the malt flavor but nothing that will stick out and disturb the harmony of this beer.

3.14/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Honey color with a weak head. Very nondescript on the nose. Mild hop fruitiness, and a mild bitter finish. Not much in the way of malt, and really no strong flavors I could pull from it. A very average beer with not much originality....AVERAGE.

Serving type: on-tap

A.. A nice golden hue. Minimal/no head or lace

S.. A typical pale ale

T.. Great tasting ale. Light hops with a good amount of malt (good for the type of brew). A little sweetness

M.. Easy drinking beer. Minimal carbonation, could be a session beer

O.. Very good pale ale. On tap or in the can it's worth the time

Can from trade. No datw. Big thanks for a tall can! Pours hazy orange with a one finger white head and lots of lacing. Floral hop aroma with some grass and light malts in the background. Flavor is a nice combination of floral notes and grapefruit with some toffee coming from the malts in the background. Some dry cracker flavor here and a little on the light side. Somewhat slick mouthfeel with adequate bitter and a relatively smooth finish. Nothing special but at the same time very drinkable and nothing wrong with it. Great cookout brew and in a big enough can to last.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - pours a deep and cloudy amber. Maybe a fingers worth of white foam which quickly fizzles out. Leaves streaks of lacing against the glass.

S - strong malt character. Cake, hard caramel candy, and doughy bread. Grassy, floral hop notes while a faint citrus undertone.

T - sort of earthy and grainy flavors up front. toasty flavors along with sweet caramel malt flavors. Sweet citrus peel and some grapefruit pith. Finish is sweet and malty.

M - medium bodied. Creamy. High carb.

O - nice pale ale. Easy drinking and full flavored. The big can is a nice touch as well.
