look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

24oz can, no dates.

Pours a hazy amber with a thick off-white head. Great lacing, solid retention.

The aroma is somewhat fruity, though not in a hoppy way. More of a yeasty thing. Otherwise very clean.

Flavor is on the maltier side for an APA, needs more hops. I don't think I'm drinking this beer at its peak, but there's no way of knowing without a date code on the can. Some slightly spicy and fruity hop flavor, but not much. Clean and drinkable, and not terribly exciting. Moutfeel is natural and smooth, medium-low carbonation.

As far as Pale Ales go, this beer is slightly above-average, but I can't really give it above a 3.0 overall. Probably better fresh.

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

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

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.

A - Pours a clear pale gold 1 finger of soapy white head, little head.
S - Some nice dank pine, a little citrus, and a touch of tropical fruits, some big fresh bread malt.
T - Pretty well balanced, a tad heavier on the biscuit and bread malt, mild ripe tropical fruit taste, some mild bitterness as well.
M - Chewy medium feel.
O - Pretty good APA, could just dial down the malt a tad in flavor to help it.

Draught in Brewpub: This one poured a clear, golden color. It had a bit of a frothy white head. Some lacing. It has a lighter aroma of piney hops, with possible some floral notes. The taste is very good A mild pine hop bite, with a fairly decent malt body. Clean and easy drinking.
