Golden straw color with a fluffy head of 1 finger.

Aroma of caramel malt, piney hops, and slight citrus peel.

Flavor washes out a bit lending forward faint caramel grains, a bitter yet funny-sweet pine hop character, and hints of apple and orange peel.

Feel is crisp but not entirely clean. Light hop resins fade.

Overall not a beer I look forward to visiting again but people seem to love this brew.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass. Best Before July 5th 2018… ooo getting close.

Frothy and big soapy bright white head that forms out of the can, into a real fist tall height, and thick shampoo bubbles. Some pretty good staying power with very little retention, even forms an island surprisingly. Clear bodied, with a pale amber color. Quite an excellent looking pale ale.

Soft nose, perhaps faded hop, but still a good sense of light dank quality. A touch of brown sugar like caramel smelling malt hits as well, a bit lighter and not as bold or crisp sensing. Good and solid aroma.

Very impressive palate. Light bodied, but with a sense of creamy texture and feel, giving to a nice malt sweetness. Hop angle is actually more citrus orange tasting, mixing with touches of earth and a little bit of mint, particularly on the finish. Excellent peppy mouthwash like flavor, but with a good sweetness.

Why have I put off giving this brew a proper review? Man this is a very solid impressive American Pale Ale.

Served on Delta international flights. Free tick. Pours out with a nice rocky head. Golden body, light hoppy aroma. Taste picks up more of the hops, hemp notes, earthy. Not bad.

Little bit of grapefruit type smell going on, not much else..

Flavor is pretty plain , lots of floaters ,very little carbonation almost flat.

1 is enough for me.

Pours out a honey color with an off-white head that dissipates rather quickly. Lacing is non-existent.
There are some light tropical hops notes in the nose. Sweet orange comes to mind. Semi bitter with grains.
Taste like bitter tropical fruits. Not overpowering at all. It has a nice lemon zest in the finish that lingers a bit.
The mouthfeel is pretty damn smooth with some pleasant carbonation. It's an easy drinker.
