On tap. Nice orange color. I get no hops in the nose. Taste is decent bitter, hops on the piney side. A bit malt heavy for an APA. Feel is unremarkable, decent carb. Overall just ok

Full of an abundance of pine resin, grapefruit, citrus peel with an extremely light malt backbone. Finishes with bitter notes of grapefruit peel and more pine resin. Got better as I drank it.

A very clear amber/orange with a half finger of off white head that fades fairly quickly to a ring. Very spotty lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, lemon , orange, and apricot jam. The flavor is nice and balanced between hoppy and malty. Caramel and a good amount of citrus and that jam vibe. Not too bitter, but it lingers just a bit. Feel is good carbonation, dry on the finish, but slightly sticky, and medium body. Thanks to the customer in Sun Devil Liquors for recommending this. I enjoyed it, Sir!

Picked up a can from the Quick Stop on 10-1-16 for $1.50. No canning date visible.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that left lacing behind.

Nosed was subdued citrus.

Taste was very well balanced between the caramel and pale malts and citrus hops. A touch of pith in the finish.

Feel was medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall a pretty good beer where the flavors meld well together. Had this with Sriracha Beef last night.

Color is golden with a small head that fades fast. The taste is full of citrus and hops with a dryness to it. The finish is dry with a medicinal taste and that of pine and grapefruit, very dry feel. Overall a decent hoppy beer with typical flavors, decent to drink on a hot day, grows on you as you drink more.
Would buy again.

Poured a clear amber body with one finger of bubbly white head. Overall impression of appearance is of a very nice APA, quite true to form. Scents of spicy, herbal, vegetal, earthy and citrus-like hops at medium-high levels with a light supporting malt backbone that takes a pale malt quality. Overall impression of aroma is of a very nice pale ale, true to style and quite hoppy. Flavor begins bitter and hoppy with notes of pine resin, grapefruit flesh, citrus peel and pith and light spicy hop flavors with a light malt backbone. This continues through the middle. Finish is bitter with notes of grapefruit flesh, grapefruit peel and pine resin. Aftertaste is bitter with notes of spicy hops, grapefruit peel and pine resin. Overall impression of flavor is of a very hoppy pale ale, almost an IPA. Rather pleasant. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation and a resinous,most sticky drying feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a good pale ale. Overall this is a rather nice pale. It is quite hoppy in aroma and flavor, at the upper end of the style, but in a pleasant way. Mouthfeel compliments flavor and makes this a good pale ale.

Honestly I don't know how old the can I was sent is, it doesn't appear to be dated...but it has almost no aroma and tastes very stale and bitter. Not very impressed but I've certainly had worse.
