look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Been meaning to review this beer for some time.

Available at Trader Joe's for a great price and a good beer for the price.

A: Pours a very pale/golden. Crystal clear with a small white head.

S: A mild hoppiness to it, with a little crystal malt coming out. Nothing to robust.

T: A good all around APA. A decent balance of hoppiness.

M: Thin and crisp. Not an amazing beer, but very refreshing.

I'm an IPA guy so of course it will seem tame to me, but for the style it's quite good. Something to keep a six pack in the fridge of for hot days or working on the car. Refreshing but tasty enough.

This beer is the 5th mystery beer in my Trader Joe's pack. I thought at first glass, it look aesthetically pleasing.

A-I'm drinking this one from the bottle so as usual, I will review the packaging. It is simple with no neck sticker. Quite frankly I think it could be unforgettable.

S-The smell is pleasant and has a typical pale ale scent.

T-Refreshing, crisp, and light.

M-A little empty but quite bubbly on the tongue.

O-The beer is okay and I think I would get it again. It would go great to sip while mowing the lawn or messing around outside.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle only a couple months old.

Look is clear, pale, golden, with a small and sticky head. Smell goes kind of metallic for me: pear, oranges, alcohol. Taste is juicy and sweet, without any off flavors. Orange peel, thick malts, crisp and bready with a bitter finish.

Very good for a tj beer.

Poured from a 12 oz stubby brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. 100913 freshness date stamped on front of label. Purchased at Trader Joe's (Charlottesville, VA) for $6.99.

A: Clear honey-gold with 1-2 fingers of off-white, frothy head with decent retention and plentiful crusty lace around the top of the glass.

S: Aromas are decidedly hoppy with a great mix of fresh hop, dank with milder floral orange citrus character. Malts are also part of the aroma profile with a good bready, crackery aroma too. I don't detect any yeast or alcohol aromas.

T: The flavor is excellent, especially at the price point, with a flood of bready malt, light caramel sweetness, but delicious crackery character as well. The hoppiness is balancing with tea-like herbal character up front but more orange and grapefruit citrus and floral qualities as well. The hops character really blends well with the malt profile. No yeast or alcohol character present.

M: Light-bodied with medium carbonation and a super-dry finish. There is no astringency or negative qualities.

O: One of the most drinkable beers out there. Not as iconic as SNPA but just as drinkable and very buyable at $6.99. Gotta check the bottled on date but overall a wonderful balanced APA with low ABV and superb flavor and sessionability. A really good beer when you can find it within 3-4 months of bottled on date. I wish TJ was more respectful of the beer as far as storage of this beer -- would coolers be that tough?

A leftover from a family get together, I poured this with low expectations having had their IPA earlier and found it wanting.

Poured a hazy gold with small head left faded quickly. The smell is pleasant with a light citrus scent, a little grassy, simple but not too bad. The taste is a improvement on the smell, with the citrus being upfront and a nice, semi dry fade. Not very complex, but overall enjoyable.

I would say it's not a great beer hat I would seek out, but for the price it's a winner that I would not turn down. Way to go Trader Joes!
