Narnad (1503) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Pours a lightly hazed orange color with a creamy, off white head. Aroma has a very pronounced cascade hops nose - light citric acidity, strong orange fruit, light sweetness from the caramel malt. Flavor starts off with a good does of smooth cascade hoppiness but transitions into a light maris otter/munich toasted malt kick to go along with the malt sweetness. Body is modest with a very low carbonation rate. Overall an okay brew but really not much different from other cascade hopped brews. Not bad, not unique but done up well.

bwa5879 (813) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Really cloudy light brown/orange pour, short dense white head and lots of lacing. Lively carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, clean finish. Very pricey, resinous aroma. Flavor of strong nutty and Carmel malts, pine and a bit of tropical hops. Good nutty IPA but nothing to write home about.

Bottle. A golden color with a strong citrus hop aroma and taste. Hoppy with a bitter finish.

emusche (60) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pours golden with a thin ivory head. Aromas of citrus and piney resin; not overly complex. Taste is solid, tropical fruit and the slight bitterness of the hops. A year ago I would've thought this was amazing; today it's kinda "meh". ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (8548) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2015
12oz bottle, thanks to Chris R. Shared with Amy S. Date on bottle reads 8-20-15. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Decent spread of lace. Medium-plus body, smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Mildly slick, then dry finish. Some earthy hops, bready sweet malt, touch of citrus. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. An alright pale ale. Kind of like the ghost of a somewhat older IPA.

ddemmingjr (783) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle at Lucky Owl. Pours hazy dark orange with frothy off white head. Some lacing. Nose is faint, some earthy hops and not much else. Citrus, grain, some green notes and some lingering bitterness. Not terribly good at this point as I hope it's better fresh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Spears. Amber with a lasting off-white head. Honey, ritz crackers, mango and apricot. Balanced flavor with a fruity bitterness. Body is medium with a foamy feel.

bottle shared that poured and orange color with white head. the nice pleasant aroma of hops was nice. trying to remember that this is an APA medium malt body nice hop flavor not overbearing at all. easy to drink. not fantastic but yet very good. overall this for an APA is very tasty. I could drink a lot of these.

kseecs16 (1213) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a soapy off-white head that leaves sleeves of lacing on the glass. Aroma is potent sweet orange citrus hops. Mild bodied and somewhat dry with a bitter piney finish. Bitterness lingers, but is not overwhelming and encourages another sip. Nicely carbonated.
