Catchy name. Look is good. Dank taste. Piney, bitter, residual. Not much nose. Average pale ale. Would have again.

Dark yellow, half an inch of white head. Aroma was very mild, grain, hops, nothing you can get without searching for it.

Taste is run of the mill pale ale, 45 ibu I'd guess, toasted malt, no off flavors. Like a Cascade hopped pale ale. I can dig it, but not a repeat purchase.

A darker yellow pale ale, about 1/2" head on it, poured at beer revolution. Aroma was just a soft meld of hops and mild malt tones. Pedestrian.

Sessionable pale ale, really seems to be something that is made to be plenty easy to drink. Not a hop heads dream. Adequate bitterness, not much in the way of a specific hop flavor though.

Rubicon can make some assertive stuff, this isn't one of them, this is the beer I order for people who don't like beer. Or for myself if its like, 102 degrees outside.
