Pours an amber with a white head. Smells of citrus, hops, sweet malt, and some fruits. Tastes of citrus zest, sweet malt, fresh mildly bitter hops, and tropical fruit. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall an incredibly good pale ale.

From a can at Busboys and Poets, Washington, DC
Pours a nice golden color with a pure white head. Faint aroma of pine, fairly subdued. The taste is bitter and off-putting with a bitter whang that doesn't seem to be hoppiness. Not much hops flavor, just thin and bitter. My second try at this beer...obviously not for me.

The look is a hazy amber. The head was a nice off-white one inch with mild lacing. The nose is mainly malt along with spices and fruit. Hard to nail down the exact fruit. The taste is well balanced but more hops that remind me of an IPA rather than an APA. The malts do blend well with the hop element. A nice medium body with a fairly clean finish. Overall a good APA.
