look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, cloudy

Smell: citrus hops and pine hops

Taste: citrus hops and pine hops--light honey and malt to balance out the beer

Mouthfeel: sweetish start with a dry bitter middle and aftertaste, light body, medium carbonation

Overall: A nice dry and hoppy beer that is never overly bitter. One of the better pale ales I have had. I am glad I picked up a four pack of this and would get it again if I wanted this style.

16 oz can poured into 12 oz snifter

A: light a bearish orange hue a little bit of a head perfect clarity

S: Has a buttery and fresh cut grass smell with maybe a slight over ripe melon smell

T: A lot like the smell with some tartness on the end, I like the mellow overripe smell people often confuse this I think with diacetyl but I don't believe that's it.

M: pretty full mouthfeel for a pale ale

O: I love this beer I think the sorachi hops play well off the Citra and give you a lush buttery melon tasting fresh grass refreshing ness . Very underrated pale ale in my book . And if you can get it under a month it is a rare treat.

Poured a month old can into a tulip glass.

Deep copper color, very hazy and dense. Not looking through this one. Head was deep, dissipated quickly, almost no lacing.

Smell is good-ish to great, I bet it's great fresh out of the keg.

Mouthfeel is near perfect for me, very carbonated. Tiny little bubbles.

Overall, this is a great Pale Ale. This is the taste I hoped for when I opened their "Can't Dog" last night. The two beers have similar qualities but this beer is much more balanced in my opinion. I prefer the more citrusy, hoppy taste here as opposed to the heavy malt in "Can't Dog"

From the 16 fl. oz. can dated 5/14/16. Sampled on May 22, 2016.

It pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with lots of carbonation bubbles heading upwards to a tremendous but soft cream colored head.

Big aroma of toasted bread, toasted biscuit, citrus, and herbs. Rosemary maybe?

Medium body.

Easy drinking toastiness with a vibrant bitter hop finish. But still balanced overall. Hop heads should like it even though it is not an IPA or DIPA.
