Pours a pretty standard translucent yellow. Smells of lemon and malt. Taste is the same, with some citrus rind and more detailed caramel notes coming through with the malt. Leaves a feeling on the mouth a lot like soda, except I hope I can trust this to not rot my teeth too much! Not bad.

Slightly cloudy, uniform, straw colour with a tall enough white head which fades to a thin bubbly foam rather quickly. Carbonation looked a little over active, but looks pretty good all the same. Aroma definitely tropical citrus, but not too strong; hoppy & fruity. Taste is again tropical citrus with some astringent bitterness up front which lingers throughout the sip. The hops peek through but seem blocked by the bitterness, leaving the taste rather dry. Mouthfeel is neither juicy nor full, and only almost smooth. If I hadn't had 20 better IPAs in the past year, I would say this is pretty good. Instead, I'm saying it was drinkable, but not something I will look for again, and not worth a 4+ where I would score good PAs.

NE style pale ale from a can--at my grocery store. Let's try it!
This pours a straw tan with a pleasant cloudy haze. Looks the part.
I get a big aroma of squeezed orange juice. There's a nice body on this. Drying finish. Orange citrus with some pineapple undertones. Not bad!

A - Poured a very pale straw color, hazy. A slightly too aggressive pour yeilded a large 3 finger head. Very thick and frothy white head, took quite a moment to dissipate. Left no lacing, and only a slight ring of head remained around the edge.

S - Aroma is a little off. I get a nice pungent herbal hop, dank, pine at first then it's followed by a bunch of off aromas including butter and green apple.

T - The flavor is light and crisp, citrusy hops, lemon zest, slight mango as well as grassy, earthy, and floral notes. Not as Juicy as I was expecting for a beer called "The Juice" but more than adequate for an APA. A nice malt backbone accompanies providing a slightly sweet bready flavor. Finish is only slightly bitter, with an English ale yeast character rife with diacetyl and an unappealing green apple flavor.

M - Mouth feel is a little too thick for the style, sticky, and slow drinking, not quaffable or refreshing. Odd for the ABV, I would expect a crisp refreshing brew, but this is slow sipping, forcing me to focus on the off flavors present.

O - Overall I'm not too impressed with this there are many, many more alternatives both local and from abroad that are more enjoyable than this. I think this has potential, but being contract brewed by shipyard they cant escape the house flavor with that buttery diacetyl that you wish wasn't there but keeps presenting its ugly head with every sip. It fits with an English ale, but this juicy APA begs to be brewed with a clean finishing yeast.

16oz can into a pint glass. packaged 9/15/17, so a little over 3 months old.

hazy orange-yellow body, small persistent white head leaving good lacing.

not much on the nose, smells kinda "clean".

not much in the taste department either. maybe 3 months is too long for this particular beer. no juice, just aslightly sour bitterness.

around medium on the mouth, sour and bitter on the finish.

overall, a disappointing brew. would like to try a fresher one. i believe this 4 pack was from a fairly recent event at a bottle shop. would have hoped they would bring the freshest beer possible.

-Canned 7/17. Consumed in a spiegelau ipa glass 11/17.

A: A light haziness fills a faint orange colored body with some lemony highlights. Carbonation is sparse, slow moving while a whipped and frothy dairy cream colored head rests atop with good resistance.

S: Wet and tropical pineapple and oranges mix with a juicy and fresh nature on the open. Fresh wet grassy and pine hops also chirp in. Theres some juicy lemon as well while the strength is mid-level while lingering.

T: Bittering orange and citrus hops are flowery providing a nice bite upon the open. The semi-dry tropical notes of pineapple and mangoes bring in a fresh wet vibe while the finish finds more of a flowery pine and grassy dry hop fade.

M: Crisp carbonation and creamy malts provide a razor sharp bite and delivery on the tongue. Flowery hops adds an abrasive edge and warming of tropical orange occurs on the inner cheeks.

O: Overall a nice transition of tropical wet and flowery dry hops progress though-out the drink bringing a nice change of spectrum. Amply hopped brew with some NE tropical notes combining with some west coast flair and flavor. Highly bitter, sharp mouthful with a nice drink-ability rate.
