L: Hazy orange pour. 1-finger head.
S: Smells of citrus, pine, lime, and light malts.
T: Follows the aroma. Lots of hop flavor with a little sweetness from the malts.
F: Smooth, just slightly sticky and slightly drying.
O: Very flavorful pale that packs a lot of flavor into a small ABV. Worth picking up.

12 oz can poured into a ball jar. No date on the can but had just arrived the day I picked it up.

Pours a somewhat thick hazy orange with maybe a hint of red. Thick fluffy head quickly dissipates. Aroma is moderately strong orange/grass/pine. When I first poured I detected an odd tinge to the aroma but that never came back. Taste is nice fruit-malt combo that fades into a pleasant mild bitterness and hop buzz. Mouth feel is refreshing, not too sticky. The fruity hops linger into the aftertaste, which is a nice touch. It packs a lot of flavor for a modest beer.

Overall this is a great surprise. Maybe I just had low expectations but this will be one I seek out for a summer beer. Not too malty but full of that great APA aromatic hop flavor.

A: Pours a hazy golden orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Lots of peach and citrus with hints of grass. A bit of sweetness from the malt also steps up

T: Follows the nose. A bit more maltiness here than in the nose. Still get the peach and citrus with quite a bit of earthy and grassy notes that do a good job balancing the malt bill. Finishes with lingering peach notes and maltiness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid pale ale that is very easy to drink and has some nice hop flavors going on

From Notes:
Served on-tap at the brewery on October 16th 2013

A - Light straw with one finger of a white fizzy head, very fine small lacing.
S - Very fresh, citrus, grassy, a little pineapple in there too.
T - Clean and light, citrus comes through with some pale malts, very grassy and floral flavor
M - Clean, crisp and semi - dry.
O - Very refreshing and crisp pale ale, just like an XPA should be.
