Slightly hazy orange color with a thin head with short retention.
Nice refreshing aroma with notes of lemongrass, pine, oranges, grapefruit, passion fruit and a bit of guava.
Flavor with notes of pine, lemon, mild mango, grapefruit, lemongrass, passion fruit, flowers and guava juice. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Forty something IBUs sounds right.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Good rounded hop forward APA. It is not deep, nor super complex, but it has an assertive refreshing power. It could not be better for this hot day.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy medium golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, papaya, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, cracker, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and bready/grainy/sticky/resinous balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Fairly clean finishing. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an excellent American pale ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very bright and dank hops, with a great pale malt backbone for the low ABV. Tastes like pure Simcoe hops to me. A really enjoyable offering.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, dank, malts. Taste is citrus, light pine, none of the malts in the aroma. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is an ok beer, but nothing special.

Pours a translucent light straw yellow with a off white foam head that disappears rather quickly but leaves light lacing down the glass. Nose is of cracker malts light pine and sweet corn. Taste of pale malts, pine and faint citrus peel. Where I begin to have a problem is as the beer warms it begins to become buttery to taste and feel. Possibly a bit of diacetyl? Not as prominent ice cold out of the can but it doesn't take long for it to begin to take over the beer. It is very light bodies but gains that buttery texture as it warms. If I you can drink this one quick, say within 5 minutes then it's tolerable. Mehhh

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-ruddy transparent yellow to orange color. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. Finger’s worth of white foamy head dissipated at a nice pace. Semi-thick crisp foamy lace. The aroma starts off with clean brisk piney hops and then opens up into some citrusy hops and subtle dankiness underneath. The flavor has those hops in front, bitter and sweet with a touch of honey sweetness underneath. Sweet to bitter hop burn in the aftertaste but acceptable. Crisp sweet sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Sessionably smooth yet crisp bouncing bitter hops penetrate for a nice bitterness. Overall, damn nice APA that I would love to have again.
