From a 19.2 oz can in a clear glass it has a slightly hazy golden color. A good hop smell up front followed by the sweetness of the malts. Decent carbonation and head. Good balance of flavors, nice hops but not overpowering. The malts are just sweet enough to tie it together. Very refreshing in this God forsaken heat and humidity of Harris county, TX. I'd buy it again.

Canned 6/22/17
12 oz. can poured into a can glass.

Two fingers of off-white soapy foam sits upon a nice crystal clear copper body and leaves sticky lace on the glass with every tilt.

The nose is a little weak, consisting of light floral hops, a bit of orange and a malty bread aroma. It drinks crisp with good Hop bitterness front to back and the same malt and hop characteristics that I got in the nose. There is also a slightly sour taste of wood. Feel is light to medium in body with fairly high carbonation.

Middle of the road Pale Ale.

Pours an amber color with a very thick, slightly off-white head. Slightly piney aroma with a hint of orange to it. Taste follows, primarily pine with a little orange and a touch of malt backbone. Pine flavor lingers a bit, medium to medium light body. Easy drinker, well balanced, solid APA.
