look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear golden amber pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Great sticky lacing.

S: Toasted grains and light pine.

T/F: Follows the nose. Grainy/crystal malts. Light pine and citrus. Very modest bitterness... slightly earthy. Fairly light bodied. Crisp and clean.

O: A solid and very easy drinking APA. Good flavor, modest bitterness.... not one to seek out, but one you could drink several of in a session and still feel pretty okay.

Golden brown in color ..this looks and smells like a ho-hum standard IPA. Taste has decent hop bite but nothing else really stands out here and this drinks like your normal session beer

12oz can into a pint glass. best before 4/22/17, so about 10 months late on this one. oh well.

looks decent enough. hazy orange body, thick foamy head leaving excellent lacing, very lightly carbonated.

no aroma at all, nothing good, nothing bad.

kinda dead tasting. nothing much going on.

mouth between medium and full. faintly bitter on the finish. perhaps the last traces of hops.

overall, not unpleasant in any way. even this old. no bad aftertaste. will re-review if I come across a fresher one.

Pours nicely with a dissipating foamy white head, initial light lacing, light Smokey orange color. Smell is very faint citrus. Taste is a very nice blend of biscuit malt and hops and not overly bitter. Slight spice. Body is medium with ample carbonation.

Nifty looking can from Sky Fox in Pottstown PA. This beer has a nice orange golden slightly hazy look with an offwhite head a lots of carbonation bubbles seen rising. The scent is pretty dead on for an APA, mix of malt and hops but nothing exciting. Flavor is pretty good with an even blend of biscuit malt and hops, not really sweet nor very bitter. Crisp and fairly well carbonated and slightly on the thinner side. I could see these going down quickly.

Aroma was of malt,and cereal as well as some hops and citrus. Really nice beer,easy to drink,all the elements/flavors worked well togethor. There was malt,hops,then some citrus on the finish.This was not a hop overload beer,the hops kind of crept up after the first taste of malt

Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet malt, orange, honey, biscuits and some earthy hops on the back end. Taste starts with a very classic, biscuity malt profile, similar to a helles. Some floral hop notes in the middle and the finish is a really nice combination of malt and citrusy hops. Medium to light bodied with crisp carbonation. Overall it's a quite nice, easy drinking pale ale but nothing to go crazy for.
