See through (slight bubble haze) with a nice golden look and a decent just off white head. Nice scent where citrus and melon take the lead and I'm really reaching to detect any malt on the nose. Good fleeting flavor of citrus hops with a bready/biscuit stickiness and bitter finish. In my opinion adding a touch of sweetness could make this a bit better. Good lighter but yet creamy mouthfeel with less carbonation. Solid 4 in my book. Decent.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear light golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Sticky lacing all over the glass.

S: Citrus and pine... light tropical notes.

T/F: Crackery grains supply the base for a relatively mild citrus hop profile. Grapefruit and tangerine... mild evergreen... some herbal/lemongrass notes. Light in body... with a citrusy finish. Modest bitterness.

O: A solid APA... light, drinkable, and refreshing. Good take on the style.

Poured into a mug: color is slightly hazy gold, head is bright white and presents at least 1/2 inch thick and lingers very well leaving a at least 1/4 inch top with some lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is hop forward, light citrus, herbs, grass, then some moderate toast and grainy malt.

Taste is similar with forward hops that are dominant but not overly bitter, malt is grainy and toasted, hint of biscuit like flavors; hop flavors are similar to aroma with light citrus/herbal/grassy flavors.

Mouthfeel is crisp, moderately carbonated, lingering sharpness.

Overall a good but not incredible pale ale.

From a can at Blackwood Barbecue in Chicago. The definition of a good pale ale. Light but still flavorful, grapefruity hops. Summer beer that's not boring.

16oz can dated 10/03/17
Poured into a pint glass boasts a yellow gold colored body floating a strong 2+in white foam head and leaving a gradually thinner sheet of lacing an I finish the pint.

Aroma is piney, floral hops with pine up front.

Flavor is floral hoo forward with a slight hint of malt for good measure.

Mouthfeel leans lighter than most ipa's.

Overall a fine example of the style.
