2.88/5  rDev -18.2%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Purchased a six-pack at Total Wine & More. Poured in to a pint glass.

Fizzy on the open, have the glass ready. Pours a pale yellow color with an oversize head.

Smell is nice, citrus and pine notes.

Tastes a lot like it smells. A pine and citrus flavor with a little malt presence in the back.

Feel is good, light but slightly cloying.

Overall a nice APA. The foam eruption opening the can is a turn off.

3.76/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Very slightly hazed gold with four fingers of off white head that lasts about five minutes and leaves lots of fine bubble lace.
Smell is pungent and phenolic.
Taste is grassy herbal hops with some sweet malt.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and mildly bitter.
Overall a under achiever IMO. Could be this is a bit old. Canned date is November 30, 2016. Almost six months old.

Not the worst beer but certainly not the best. I drank it from the bottle and it taste somewhat stale to to me possibly due to shelf life since i picked it up at an old gas station, but that being said still showed moments of potential but falls flat in the taste and feel department.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: slightly murky dark-orange hue with a lazy effervescence and a thin layer of ivory foam. A little on the dark side.

Smell: lightly sweet with some grassy hop character. Mild, but relatively well balanced.

Taste: malty with a little bit of toast and some grassy, herbal hops. There's more character in the flavor than the aroma, which helps.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent level of carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: this is not a bad beer; it's nicely drinkable, but the aroma is not especially character-ful.
