Well what can I say! I like the look of this beer! Pours a bright hazy lemon yellow with a soapy bright white head. Nose is bright cracker malts, citrus peel, lemon and pine. Taste is well balanced. Nice cracker/biscuit maltiness to it with orange peel and lemon zest layered in. Some sharp pine notes to through off the sweet malt and citrus notes. Medium to light bodied with a malty semi bitter finish. A really nice everyday drinker here.

From the one pint can which was canned 3/14/18. Sampled on April 6, 2018.

It pours a murky, cloudy looking pale yellow that is mostly opaque and a quick lasting foamy white head. Some lacing.

There are many hop characters in the aroma such as citrus, pine, grapefruit, and lemonzest and that all covers the white bread base.

The body was light and thinner than I had hoped. But I guess for an APA that is the way it should be.

Big spurting citrus and grapefruit taste with a mild sweetness and a moderate dry hopped finish. Excellent drinkability.

Nice session beer, analogous to Carton Boat, but not to stronger APAs like Dales.
Well made. Too much like a pear-grapefruit juice blend in looks, weight, feel, taste, for me.
a) hazy pear juice color with a single finger of fluff, that doesnt lace or last that long. Too light for my eye.
s) Aromas are pear, peach and tropical fruit and not much else. But approachable and abundant.
t) Flavors follow the aroma, juicy and fruity, more grapefruit, orange, on light toast, and with a bit of pine cleaning up the finish.
f) Too thin, active carbonation, clean finish.
o) All about fresh fruit. Well made for those liking light, fruity juice like beers.

Canned 12/6/17. A nice hazy lemon-pear color with a tall, fluffy head of white, 3 fingers. Lots of lace left behind on the glass.

Aromas are very sharp with sharp papaya, grapefruit rind, passion fruit, and tangerine.

Flavors are juicy and fruity, just how I like it. Light lemon flavored water meets grapefruit rind, squished orange, white bread, light toast, and slight pine and angel food on the finish.

Feel is kinda empty, but still has a nice buzzing carbonation, watery middle, with a slightly buzzing finish.

Overall, an enjoyable IPA with lots of great fresh fruit notes. Would definitely have/trade for again.

16oz can dated 01/08/18. Pours a hazy pale burnt yellow color with over an inch of frothy head. Lots of lacing. Juicy aroma of tropical and citrus fruits. Pineapple, mango, guava and grapefruit. The taste is more of the citrus and tropical fruits but with a good amount of toasted malts. Some lemon as well as pine towards the end. Malty, citrusy finish. Pretty well balanced. Very little alcohol. Creamy with an oily mouthfeel. Very good Pale Ale.
