This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all about. The smell started off with a big burst of citrus hops running over light piney notes and then a slight floral setting balances within. The taste copied the smell to have a nice bittersweet burst of hops to malts, nicely balanced. A light piney to citrus aftertaste leads into a refined sweet citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation feels right for an AIPA - slightly back to allow the hops to take the lead on the bitterness and harshness on my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.

This is a really good pale ale, most pale ales are nearing ipas, this is not as hoppy and is very balanced but lacking a bit of malt that i think could be expressed better

Poured out of a 12 oz. can into a tumbler.

Bright gold, semi-translucent. Pours with a large amount of thick, frothy white head. Head dissipates slowly and leaves considerable lacing.

Very grainy, yeasty aroma. Smells a lot like I might expect a lager to smell.

Taste is big on malts at first. Gives way to lighter citrus fruits. I get the hops right at the very end. They're present, but only just so.

Mouthfeel borders on creamy. Not a lot of carbonation here.

Overall, a really tasty and refreshing pale ale.
