Just had a Lagunitas Sumpi’ Easy, so the direct comparison did not help this beer. Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Clear yellow, decent head and lacing. Slight floral smell. Taste is a bit citrusy, a bit bready. A bit of lemon and a nice bitter finish. Not bad.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a moderate sudsy white head. Good retention and yields Saturn rings of lacing.
Aromas of fruity hops; citrus, peach and pineapple. A biscuity malt aroma overlaps the hops.
Clean and crisp. Medium bodied to light, dry and easy drinking. Flavors of grapefruit, lemon, pine and a subtly sweet malt backbone that opens up as it warms. The bitterness is modrrate and clean; just about right. Well balanced. A nice pale ale.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of citrus hops with slight floral notes. Tastes of sweet grain with citrus notes, but a tad bit watery. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall an above average beer.

Picked up a can at the local grocery. Fun can and brewery from my home state. I wanted to like it and I did. Poured into a pint glass after mowing the lawn on a weekend afternoon. Very cloudy burnt orange color with a nice head and lacing. Smell is not strong. I pick up some pine and hops. Taste is stronger with fruity notes. I am liking it as a cold session beer for summer. It does have a bitter finish but that works for me.

Pours a very murky dark yellow, reminiscent of peach juice, with a nice head of about an inch and a half or so. Smells very topical, with mango and some peach. Taste is malty upfront, with hints of tropical fruits and finishes fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is pretty chewy. A very unusual Pale Ale.

Very carbonated and citrusy. A bit piney but there is a bitterness I can't quite get past. Not very enjoyable for me.

As good as APA gets in a 5% format. Sign me up for 24.
Just misspelling the brewer who needs a new name.

A) Pale amber, slightly hazed, translucent body with thin rising carbonation. Head is fluffy, 4 fingers large, white. Big bubbles and ample lace.

S) Aroma is too faint, but fresh and juicy laid out on toasty grain, brown bread crust, with a bit of pine and citrus notes.

T) Palate follows smell but more ample. A really bright, friendly malt cookie and caramel, digestive biscuit with fresh battle between sweet malt and hop spice and pine. I could session these.

F) Easy going, fresh with clean, dry finish despite the sweet juiciness of the main play. Try 24.
