Had this on 2017-09-04 from a 16oz can with a best buy date of 2018-03-29

A - Completely hazy speach-orange with a 1-finger white head that drops quickly leaving little lace.

S - Sweet/rich/ripe apricot, pineapple flesh, mild-moderately dank.

T - Tart mandarin orange flesh, milder apricot and pineapple than the smell, fair amount of pine, very lightly dank, peppery spice. Mild french bread malt flavor lurks far in the background. Finish is fairly bitter but with some residual fruit sweetness for balance.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Juicy and a little resinous and prickly.

O - Very enjoyable. Tons of flavor; and only 5% ABV. A winner!

Can that says best by 3/18. Pours hazy yellow/orange with a white head that leaves some lacing behind. The smell is citrus, biscuit and cracker malt, pine, and light dank. Taste is citrus forward follwed by dank and light malts finishing with pine. Feel is medium to light, kinda soft with light bitterness. Overall I really enjoyed this as my first beer of the day!

Can says something about being good until 3/18 which needs to be changed ASAP for hoppy beers; this excellent pale ale needs to be drank fresh, not aged

Poured a cloudy golden color with a 2 finger head in a Spiegelau IPA. glass.

Very floral aroma, earthy, citrus( which broadens with warming)

Surprisingly smooth MF for the style.

Citrus taste which is not strong and overshadowed by the dominant wonderfully hoppy finish.
With warming, the beer broadens and more citrus comes through.

Overall, an excellent pale ale, and very drinkable with lots of flavor.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: slight haze; pale gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded to a wispy cap; nice lacing;

S: the citra is predominant, but the simcoe is noticeable as well;

T: follows the nose; a bit of citrus tartness from the middle through the finish; mild bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: it's good, but the balance is off - needs more malt character;

Really? Only one other review on this one? Especially in our organic craze of food and drinks? That's a shame, because this was quite a delight. Pours a semi-hazy light gold. White head...tiny bit of lacing left at the top of the glass. Citrus and pine aromas, bready and yeasty too. Taste is a little more grapefruit..some earthiness going on as well. Medium carbonation. Overall: A great Pale Ale I could drink all day long.
