As mentioned below this is more of an IPA than an ale. I find it quite drinkable and smooth with added bitterness compared to a typical ale. There is also a lot of citrus and some grass like flavors. On the pour there is tons of long lasting off white head. Nice on a hot summer day.

Murky and cloudy golden color with faint activity and lots of floating detritus. Slightly creamy and frothy light beige 3 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, producing some good legs and lace. Flavors of pineapples, lemon, light orange peels and grapefruits, light butter and caramel, sweet grains, barley, piney and grassy dry hops. Slick and smooth full body with moderate prickly and crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, bready and sugary, tropical fruits, leafy and grassy on the tongue, with some sharp zesty yeast. Feels like a pale ale that wants to be an IPA, like half the strength of a Tribale IPA (guys you should present this as your single IPA). Low maillard profile, mostly hops, so it lacks balance in the flavors. Still tasty and enjoyable, a robust pale ale but not excessive. Good freshness, although quite bitter, the accessibility suffers a little. Overall good quality craft, name it an IPA and it's very good.

light amber, fair white head. Nose is earthy, grassy, herbal. Taste is a bit cereal dominant, with a moderate citrus finish but a touch sweet. Medium light bodied, fairly low carbonation.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy deep orange color with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Head retention is also pretty good. Looks like a nice pale ale.

Aroma - orange pee, lemon, pineapple, grapefruit some pine and a hint of caramel malt!

Taste - citrus fruits still come out in front followed by a hint of pine and some very prominent earthy tones very dank for a pale ale almost mossy damp and finishes with cracker malt.

Feel -this is pretty light bodied and fairly sprizy for such a big flavored beer. nice to not feel overwhelmed.

Overall - I love big beers, IPA's and big stouts go ahead and throw them my way and I will be content forever. Some situations call for a nice light drinkable beer so you can go a long period of time enjoying them and keeping your buzz light. When thats the case I want something with flavor but not enough to kill my palate and this definitely fits the bill. Try it out!

A - Cloudy dark golden pour. Two fingers of dense beige head. Strong carbonation. Nice lace solid finger of retention.

S - Stone fruit. A bit musty. Citrus, some malt.

T - Dank, stone fruit, caramel malt, honey, grass. A bit astringent and harsh.

M - Quite dry, medium body, medium bitterness.

O/D - A decent pale ale. They haven't reinvented the wheel here, but they've made a fairly hop forward pale ale worth glugging in Spring.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick frothy off-white head that dies down slowly and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, grapefruit, dank piney hops, light floral notes and some toasty/caramelly malts in the back.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some nice citrus/graepfruit upfront followed by dank piney hops, floral/earthy undertone, toasty malts and sweet caramel.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-med carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Solid Pale Ale.

Serving type: can

Cloudy golden/orange in color with lots of carbonation and a nice 1 inch white head.

Smell of fresh hops, floral and earthy notes. You can't really smell anything else than the hops.

Tastes pretty much how it smells but with a nice malt profile giving it some really good sweetness to round it. Nice caramel flavors in the malts.

Definitely a good APA with a nice mouth feel.

Can: Poured an amber/orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh citrusy/grapefruit notes is pretty enticing. Taste is a mix of citrusy and grapefruit notes with nice floral undertones. Taste is a nice mix of floral citrusy notes with some zest grapefruit, a solid malt backbone with light residual sugar notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Solid APA.

Poured a slightly cloudy bright orange colour with a thin layer of off-white head

Pine and floral notes with a noticeable caramel malt backbone.

Constrained bitterness at first with pine and herbal flavours present. Honey/caramel sweetness from the malts adds balance mid-palate, followed by a long, bitter finish. As the beer warms, the malt sweetness heightens and the beer becomes too sweet.

Light body. Dry. A touch watery
