Poured from a can into a pint glass. Good citrusy scent on the nose that does not translate into the taste. Looks fine but the taste is lacking. Nothing special, just typical, hoppy Pale Ale.

Can best by 13 Jun 14 at 45 degrees
Faint pine aroma
Head average (4.5 cm), off-white, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing good – thick rings
Body light orange, slight haze
Flavor begins with slight pine flavor and bitterness, ends slightly sweet with astringent after flavor; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation

An unremarkable pale ale, with a not very clean or crisp taste, more of a weak IPA. However, I'm so use to IPAs, not to mention not acclimatized to the dryness here in AZ, that I maybe judging this a bit harshly - give it a try.

12 oz. can - freshness date on all six are illegible (I can make out the year - 17).

It pours almost all foam. One of them exploded. A golden copper body eventually comes through. A thin sheet of lacing sticks.

The smell is of pine, black pepper and caramel.

The taste is of pine that comes across almost like Pinesol. Watered down grain balances the resiny, woody character.

A bit fizzy, I'm wondering if something was wrong with this batch.

It does have a piney woody character.

Full notes taken to my phone while reviewing this at Pinon Flats Campground, Great Sand Dunes National Park, CO.

A- Slightly hazy deep golden body poured from the can to a chalice. A white crown rises atop the beer to just over one finger with a creamy consistency. Webs and drizzle lace deposits on the glass.

S- The nose is mostly hops but not entirely dominated by them or pungent. The main notes I get are citrus zest, pine and slight fruit hints. Pale cracked grains and yeast peek through just a bit.

T- Hops once again the main player but more balance comes through here. Hops provide grapefruit and citrus zest, dried apricot, pine, floral and herbal notes in rough order of strength. The backdrop consists of pale Crystal malt, light caramel sweet, cereal grain, yeast bread and fruit ester hints.

MF- The body is towards the light side but support is found in a crisp consistency between foamy and frothy. Fairly bitter in the after taste.

Hops in the front but not by too much as the yeast and malts start to show through after a few sips. More citrus than pine for me but refreshing and tasty nonetheless.

apologies if i have forgotten or remembered incorrectly, but im pretty sure this is my first arizona brew. a pretty basic pale ale though here, and it doesnt do much to impress me. somewhere between rusty orange and light copper in color, rather clear, and straightening up in posture with three quarters of an inch of delicate white head, but it recedes quickly. the nose is generic C varietal hops, with little else but pale malt. its basic in every way, well made, but lacking the ability to hold my attention through much more than a glass. i like the feel better than the bittersweet malt/hop profile thats a dime a dozen. its softly carbonated, almost feels like a cask pull, and has a fuller than medium body giving it some nice weight as i sip on it. drinkable enough, but its boring to me, middling in every way. generic hopping, simple grain bill, and really not much different than any pale ale out there. passable, but i am interested in the location a lot more than the beer. what else is out there from arizona? this cant be the pinnacle can it?
