12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 2/13/2017. Bit of a gusher upon opening. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the whole glass. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, mango, melon, light pepper/pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, mango, melon, light pepper/pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, mango, melon, light pepper/pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a very good American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the lightly bitter/drying finish. Nicely juicy Cascade/Mandarina hop complexity; perfect malt balance, and never overly sweet/heavy feeling. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Poured from can. Cloudy orange. Smell is mild citrus. Flavor is big citrus, but weird. Not very hoppy. Overall, I think this is not what I was expecting taste-wise.

Poured into a pint glass. Shows a cloudy light orange with a 1 finger head. Not very hoppy but the citrus is there. Not what I would consider a smooth beer but it's drinkable. Give it a try.

Cloudy light gold. Frothy, white, two fingers tall and persisting head. Spare lacing.
Strong, tropical fruit and citrusy hop aroma. Some mandarins.
High hop bitterness, medium-low malty sweetness, high hop flavor. Some toasted flavor.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, watery, crisp and very very fresh. Some spiciness and minerals. Long and bitter finish pleasant.

Surprisingly delicious beer! I would like more malt support. Right now is more like Golden Ale.

Light amber color with an enthusiastic foam sticking to the sides of the Maredsous goblet. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel with a faint doughy aroma. There is a resiny taste in the back of the throat. Some honey malt flavor. Modest bitter twang from the start. The hoppy notes get kind of murky and bitter as you sip. More like green tea.

If this was a four percent beer I would respect it more. Still looking for more beers with the right crisp tang, a dose of aromatics, and some beery body. This is quite drinkable but doesn't stand out. From the 12 oz can purchased at Bottlecraft.
