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.

This pale ale had just enough hops up front, but still allowed the malt shine through. Cloudy orange golden body, small head, sticky lacing. Aroma is mostly malt, hops come in at first taste, mild bitter finish. Really nice
