Concealer (649) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Pours a golden orange with a foamy caramel white head. Smells of sweet citrus, pine, and some malt and mild spice. Flavor is sweet citrus and malt with some bitter hops and biscuit malt notes. Solid but nothing exceptional.

larryLSB (396) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle, poured into my favorite everyday New Belgium tulip. Nice gold color with a medium off white head. Nose was mostly citrus, with a little grass. Mild taste, a bit like grapefruit, clean and crisp. Nice aftertaste.

COMRADEJOSH (261) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Wonderful hop aroma and taste of grapefruit with just enough citrus to make it flavorful and not a hop bomb. Crisp and refreshing on the palate overall a very good beer.

IrishBoy (3753) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 8, 2013

llcooldave (1032) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Pale copper amber in color. Thin soapy head. Nice piney citrus aroma with a slight biscuit note. Decent flavor of citrusy hops and toasty malt. Overall, a solid easy drinking brew.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 4, 2013
This is so juicy. Plenty of nice hop character but only enough bitterness to stop it being sweet. This is a very nice session ale.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle. Clear pale amber with a short white head. Surprisingly enjoyable nose, though it is basic, the Cascade orange juiciness plays with some English-like hop moss / mustiness, which is confusing to be given the inclusion of Citra (and thankfully this isn’t another Citra shallot / pee / pineapple bomb). Decent caramel / stroopwafel cookie malt core, a bit too sugary but not unpleasant. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Good acid, good balance. Crusty grains and stale bread crust with some green vegetal hops and stewed tea leaves (there’s the Centennial) once it warms. Becomes more bitter and rough with time and warmth, but overall it’s a pretty solid American pale.
