Good enough APA. Has a little more honey color than most pale ales, so I expected a bolder flavor, but it's a good session beer. Mild in most respects. I rank it in the middle of a Brew Hub flight.

Poured from an undated 12 oz. can: hazy orange-honey hue with a sizeable, fully white head (perhaps a little too foamy and fluffy as the ale gushed out when opening the can.

The aroma was somewhat muted citrus.

This is a middle of the road pale ale with some fruity hop bitterness mixed with a nice malt backbone; no flavor really stands out, and I don't know the age of this ale to determine if it is bruised with age. The mouthfeel is clean and slick with some faint bitterness lingering on the palate.

The ale is good enough to warrant trying again later, it just does not really stand out in a crowded market of pales ales and IPAs.

Pours a pale (obviously) and crystal clear like golden yellow with active bubbles stemming from the bottom of the glass and a finger of bubbly foam.

Freshly toasted grains, a bit of citrus pith, and a slightly corny sweetness.

Citrus fruits of orange and lemon play about, but are held in check by the slight corn sweetness and biscuity malt backbone.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp, balanced, easy drinking.

Overall, I just happened to get this on draft while on a road trip through the Southeast US and while I'm not the biggest fan, it was certainly a well balanced and easy (too easy) drinking beer. This would be a fantastic beer for a day of fishing.
