12 oz can was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: The poured a minimal head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is an amber orange color with great clarity and tiny bubbles coming up throughout the whole beer. Great lacing is left on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: sweet and bready malts, some fruitiness, but not much else going on there.

Taste: bready, malty, fruity, tangy, creamy, and that is pretty much it. Malts take over the whole sip. Hops are not that noticeable.

Mouthfeel: smooth, a little dry, medium to high carbonation, a little chewy, and medium bodied.

Overall: Not a bad APA out of a can, but I would have others before this one. Would have liked to see more hops presence.

A so-so, thoroughly mediocre pale. Nearly clear amber with a decent head and retention. Average lacing. Mild aroma is kind of sweet and generically malty; with a slight grassy hop note behind that. Flavor is much the same, balanced between the sweet malt and grassy, floral hops that are just a bit more assertive in the taste than in the nose. Vaguely metallic, light bitterness. Overall a bit bland. Carbonation is medium to high, body is medium thin, finishes dry. Not worth seeking out, very middling. Best thing about this beer is the can.

F-ing horrible. I wish I could give this a 0. Pours a creepy orange with no head. Looks like the urine of a man whose liver has stopped working. Very metallic. Cloying malts, hop bitterness, but no aroma. Salty. I wish I could go back in time and not drink it.

As you can tell - I hated it.
