Paid $6 for a 4 pack. Not bad. Exactly what I thought it would be. Nice floral hoppy flavor. No lasting bitterness, very clean finish. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Not bad for a gas station beer. I would definitely pick it up if I was in a pinch.

From a can. Light amber color with a one finger head that leaves minimal lacing. Nose of pine and citrus hops. Taste follows the nose with semi-sweet malt and citrus hops before a slightly piney finish. Medium-light body with medium carbonation and no bitterness.
Good, balanced pale ale that I drink year round. It's more malt forward than some pales ales and not super hoppy, so hop heads might be underwhelmed. Solid summer and sporting event beer.

Pours an effervescent gold with 3 fingers of ivory colored head. Above average lacing & head retention

S: Tangerine & Mango

T: Follows the nose, light crisp breadyness & a little grassiness. Dryness &n mango as this warms, a little grapefruit peel as well. Finishes crisp, dry & grapefruitty

MF: Light bod y with lively carbonation, good balance

Very drinkable, not sure how long I could session on it, good for a few for sure

Pours out to a frothy white head that lasts and laces. Aroma is citrus and pine hops and sweet malts. Flavor mirrors the smell, with a crisp hop finish. Mouthfeel is light and clean. Overall a good call.

Everything a pale ale should be. Smooth, mellow flavor. Very drinkable, and low abv makes for a nice session option. Faint floral, maybe even a little sweetness on the smell.

Looks unfiltered with slight head retention and lacing. Strong citrus smell and faint malt. Tastes grapefruit citrus with a little cracker. Highly drinkable, but it's more like one of those session ipas than a pale ale.
Perfect session beer with the lower ABV, and the 35 ibu give it a very drinker friendly bitterness.

L : PALE straw color with a diminishing head of 2 fingers, but nicely topped with the remaining extra ounce poured into the tumbler. Slight haze, 40% opaque.

S : Fresh orange, slight grapefruit, pale malt aromas.

T : Some pine gets introduced here, with some stiff grapefruit rind, followed by orange pith and crystal malts.

F : Nice feel here, with a tight creaminess and a touch more carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O : I'd probably have this again, there was nothing offensive about it and it's a pretty balanced pale ale. Nice to have, I'm looking forward to the burgers that I'm grilling with this.

Hoppy and citrus. Grande beer. Great round taste, not sharp and not to hoppy. Although the hops stick with you .

Taste rating in words: Hop around, hop hop hop around.
