Very nice drinkable ale. Nice yellow color with some fluffy head and lingering lacing. Smells of citrus fruity hops and a little pine. Tastes of hops - more citrus fruit (grapefruit, orange and lemon) than herbal hops and pine. Also some nice malt, caramel and biscuit. Smooth mild mouthfeel with good carbonation. Just the right amount of bitter aftertaste.

19 oz Can into a glass
Looks copper or amber colored, only moderately carbonated, thick head of foam..very nice lacing on the glass
The smell on this beer is fantastic, very fruity, a little hoppy. Not getting too much sweetness which is nice. Smells like an IPA but i do expect that with most American Pale Ales. Smells fresh and vibrant.
Taste is just wow - very complex, getting a strong hop presence for sure, pick up the grapefruit and pine, also getting a backbone of malt and some sweetness to balance. In a blind taste test, I would have said this is an IPA cause it does have bitterness. Not super drinkable compared to most American beers but very, very tasty!
Overall, worth the price...Have to give this a solid grade of A

I find this to be quite a decent Pale Ale. It has pretty much the right of alcohol and hops. It also has a fair amount of body to it. I would definitely buy it again.
