This pours a semi cloudy golden color with a nice orange tint to it with a nice white head that is short, long lived and leaves pure lace down the glass.

The nose is a nice pine and grass with hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, pepper, some bread notes are there as well.

The taste is nice dry malt with a well balanced hopping throughout the taste experience. There are some notes of oranges, pine, fructose and vanilla.

The moutfeel is just right for this and delivers the complexity across the palate.

Overall this one is exceptionally good and definitely drinkable. I highly recommend it.

16 oz tallboy pours a mildly hazed gold color with a large cap of craggy off-white head. Retention is good and lace sufficient.

Nose is really nice, I wasnt expecting this good of a hop aroma to be honest. Hops lean towards the citric and tropical end of the spectrum. There is a biscuity malt in there that keeps things from being one-sidedly hoppy.

Taste has alot to offer - saltine cracker light maltiness with maybe a bit of bread dough. The hops are deftly done indeed, it flows perfectly from a nice little grapefruit flesh bite at the beginning and is finished clean without a harsh bitterness. Mouthfeel is great, I was a littel worried it was overcarbonated after the pour, but it is just fine, smooth and densely creamy. I was a little hesitant to pull the trigger on this 4-pack for 8 bucks, but am very glad I did and will buy more in the future. Recommended.

16oz can with no date. Poured into a snifter. Deep gold with small one inch head that doesn't fade. Moderate lacing. Smell is skunk orange that masks the biscuit. Taste is soft dirty pine with some pineapple. Creamy mouthfeel. Interesting pale ale that I enjoyed. Cheers!
