Been buying these across the street a Kroger's for a while in 4 packs of 16 oz cans. Always pour into a pint glass, nice lacing and a clean finish. I like the feel which is malty and full. Great smell, which reminds one of a microbrewery smell. This is an overall satisfying pale ale, thats not too thin or too heavy. Great binge drinker beer for under $7 for 64 oz to boot.

Dark gold in color. Exactly what you would expect from an average pale ale. Refreshing, lacked some key flavor, but honestly I though it was a great beer. Easy to drink, good with food, and brewed in Michigan.

Pours a clear orange golden color with white head. Fruits, light pine, and some maltiness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with light fruits, malt, and some light bread notes.

Mostly cat piss. Usual chinook hoppyness. Griffin claw, only brew I want outta you now is the BA pumpkin ale for pure trying purposes.

Otherwise, fuck off.

* also please don't count this as a review since I knew it would suck the second I smelled it * .

12 oz can, w/o freshness or canning date info

Pours hazed medium almond amber, typical off white thin film,collar and leaving splattered lacing, decent looking brew.

Pine hope nose, on semi muted side

Respectable APA, nice pine and citrus hop notes and the expected under coating of, yes, breads malts....nothing amazing or even special, but just another well crafted and quite worthy brews being made these days....hope everybody is enjoying the amazing craft beer culture we find ourselves Living in right now..
