Fantomasus (204) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours a hazy amber with a one inch white head. Appearance would be rated higher but there is something oily about it that looks unappetizing. Aroma is pleasant but uneventful: light caramel, light citrus, no yeast (or at least very hard to describe). Taste is fairly balanced with a nod towards sour/biter. Medium body with an unpleasant thin, oily feel. Unwelcome astringent, bitter finish. Will not buy again.

Draft in Laramie. Fruity citrus nose. Taste is same with nice carbonation. Good, dry apa finish. Refreshing.

jkwood04 (3851) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 30, 2013
On tap in a pilsner glass. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a nice pale maltiness. Flavor the same with a great hop and malt balance. Average texture. A good pale ale.

OldMrCrow (1809) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Tap at Safeco field Deep golden pour, nice white head. Green leafy hops and caramel aroma. Flavor is well hopped for the style but otherwise a bit thin. House character in the metallic elements on the long finish. Nice if not exceptional APA.

Bottle direct with some coworkers. This is a great gateway "craft" beer to get others going on this market.

foyle (232) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: A 2”+ eggshell/off white head recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Color is mostly clear light copper with significant carbonation present. Aroma: citrus and piney hops dominate but there is some definite caramel malt sweetness and the smell of fresh clean water. Mouthfeel: light, crisp, refreshing and slightly sticky. There is a some ale fluffiness as well. Flavor: pleasant combination of bitter citrus, pine, and lemony hops. This is balanced with a malt sweetness in the middle, although the bitterness lingers in the finish. There is a slight alcohol warming in the aftertaste. Overall: A most excellent example of the style

Concealer (749) - 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 (418) - 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 (290) - 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.
