Bottle dated 06/04/16J into pint glass. Pours a clear honey-amber with an eggshell-white head. Initial impression is light pine, citrus, biscuity malts. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Refreshing but not outstanding.

Pours copper in color from the can. Good head retention. Smells hoppy and relatively basic. It has a nice balance between it's malts and hops. Actually probably a bit malt forward for an APA. Tastes great though, I like it.

A - Wow for a pale ale its the darkest I ever seen crossing well beyond IPA and going DIPA! Head is nice I got a 1/2 inch that settles to some great lacing.
S - Decent hop to malt ratio a bit of sourdough bread. Nothing to write home with.
T +M - Its a good balance of hop to malt in fact its so perfectly balanced I could see why people give it such an average rating. Even though its 4% its still feels like a medium bodied beer so I can't seem to chug it so it's not even session able. Perplexing...

Overall I pretty much bought this because of the trout and I love fishing as much as I love ticking beer!

A thanks goes out to the captain of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a copper/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, light citrus. Taste is malty, light caramel and hops, very little bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very drinkable beer, but kind of lacking the hoppiness expected in this style.

This pours a medium amber color with a frothy beige head. The aroma is weak with some malts and touch of hops. The taste is a lot more bitter than I imagined. Decent depth to the taste but there are without a doubt much better pale ales on the market than this one. Finishes with a sweet yet bitter after taste.

Nice golden color, good clarity, almost a full inch of white head on it. Aroma was largely absent.

Taste was something striving for balance mild hops, mild toasted pale malts. Some caramel but not so much that is heavy bc of the light hopping. Very light bodied, very light alcohol notes. Total session beer. Other than looking pretty, its pretty average.

Pours a clear, copper color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, hint of pale malt, piney hops, and slight citrus hops. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Tastes of caramel malt, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight citrus hops, and slight piney hops. Overall, good appearance, and average in all other aspects.
