Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours red orange with a fluffy white head. Smells of some sweet grain with some citrus and floral hops. Tastes of sweet grain with citrus hops, very crisp. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, an above average beer.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Dark orange amber out of the can filling with a more copperish color. Hazy a bit, and little carbonation. A faint tan and creamy two finger head makes an appearance, and settles to a somewhat thin puck.

Soft caramel aromas, almost buttery toffee sweet mixing with a good aromatic hop angle as well. Slightly citrus and juiced with a nice match to the malts light but sensing sugars.

Palate hits real nicely. Sweet malt almost a floral honey tone really gets a good accent from some excellent subtle but noticeable of use of citrus flavoring like hop action. Orange and grapefruit mid palate with a good steely aftertaste that brings large amounts of zest. Great mouthfeel that is rich and full with a nice coating and not diving into syrupy quality either.

Just a real good solid pale ale.

A rather thick looking APA with swirls of suspended sediment. Translucent with a 2 1'2 finger white, clingy head that leaves moderate lacing.

Pleasing light citrus and caramel on the aroma.

Pretty much like the aroma, but kicked up a notch or two. Lightly sweet with a faint bitterness.

Moderate in body with moderately high carbonation. Syrupy with light astringency.

Simple, but well done. I'm not really a fan of canned beers, but this is possibly the best canned beer I've ever had.

On draft at the Wall Street Tavern in Roanoke. Semi-clear, golden in color. Not too much in the way of aroma. Not a bad beer, but nothing special. A simple, mild, generic APA.
