look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear, golden yellow topped off by a fluffy white head that was about 4 fingers thick. Very appealing.

Smell: Very citrusy on the nose, but with a grassy tingle from the hops.

Taste: Not the best pale ale I've had, that's for sure. The malts were a bit to front and center for my tastes and very grainy. There was only a slight bitterness on the sides of the tongue from the hops that followed the grassiness of the nose.

Mouthfeel: A bit too fizzy. Kind of tingly and acidic and just a tad dry. Not that great.

Overall: Probably not going to be my go to choice for pale ales. It was just a bit too fizzy and grassy for me. There wasn't the complexity of the citrus that was on the nose, and the malts were just too overpowering.

This can comes my way courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. This beer came gushing out of that can, despite no aggitation, making a little bit of a mess. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell was kind of mild, some hops detected. Taste is mild hops, some bitterness, a little light and bland for the style, not a lot going on. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.
