Btl pours clear golden copper color with a fluffy white head that lingers for a while leaving good lace on glass. Smells of sweet oranges, pine and grapefruit. Taste of light sweet malt and grapefruit. Light body, sticky texture,lively carbonation with nice bitterness. Good, drinkable session pale ale.

CaveSpider (26) - - OCT 19, 2013
Nice fresh hoppy aroma with a light sweet malty backbone. Appearance is a not-so-attractive murky copper with a thin white head. Looks like it would taste like dirt, but it doesn’t. The hop character in this is very nice but the malt falls a little short and isn’t as flavorful as it should be. Carbonation is perfect and lively. Overall its pretty good, but i wouldn’t buy it.

Danyel (460) - Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours orange with nice thick white head. Smells very piney with a touch of sweet orange. Tastes a little disappointing after the aroma. A slight touch of citrus hops, nice piney finish. Overall, it’s much lighter than I was expecting it to be, thin. Sessionable. Boring.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear golden beer, nice frothy head and little adhesion. Fantastic aroma, nice hop varietals in the smell. Taste is pretty good, not a stand-out, and unfortunately the palate isn’t as crisp as I like. Really a decent beer, but you’re not missing anything if you skip it.

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Sampled at GABF. Pours a dark gold with some creamy, white head. Nose is floral, honey, lemon, malt, mild and approachable. Flavor is malty, lemon, soap, oranges. Clean finish. Nice APA. Drinkable.

TempeCoyote (61) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Slight haze in the orange body. Lots of hops come through. Mostly grapefruity. Good, and would buy again especially if serving to guests who like hoppy pale ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a crisp golden copper color with creamy white head. Hop, citrus, pine and sweet malt aroma. Orange, grapefruit, hop and sweet malt flavors. Light body and smooth hop finish.
