On tap pours golden honey healthy head. Smells of Orange zest, slight floral, and bread/ yeast. Tastes well carbonated mild hops, tastes almost like a pilsner with a tad of hops.

Gold-orange clear body. Average size white head, mostly lasting with very good lacing. High citrusy hop aroma, grapefruit-like (definitively cascade). Light bread but hops truly dominate and hides any malt aroma. Huge hop flavor, light malt sweetness in the mouth. Fully balanced toward the hops, high bitterness of average to high duration. Body quite thin as I feel it, may seems watery but it’s not. Crisp dry finish still with hops bitterness. Soft carbonation. Gotta love the hops both in aroma and flavor!

Clear light orange-amber, the color of honey. Two finger beige-tan head that falls a bit quickly, leaving excellent lacing. Dry aromas of hay and citrus, along with a sort of barnyardy funk that stops short of being offputting. A bit thin in the mouth but big on flavor, with subtle but insistent malt and just enough hops to keep it dry. It’s incredible how the malt and hops keep making their presence known at the same exact pace. There’s never a moment from start to finish that is dominated by one or the other. Definitely a unique beer in that regard. A little mouthwatering lemony characteristic in the aftertaste. Chewing the beer brings up some brief caramel sweetness in the finish as well. A beer that doesn’t hit you over the head with everything it’s got right at the start. Rather, a beer that you realize is great just as you’re finishing the bottle. Great length of flavor and masterful balance, with a very attractive flavor profile (malt not too caramelly or fruity, hops not too citrusy or herbal).

One of my favorites for years. Thick,lacy head, perfumy,floral/citrus Cascade character, from bittering to flavor to aroma. Fairly pale for style, light maltiness up front, yet contributes to overall rich impression. Great, hoppy ale.

Golden orange in color. Kind of regular for a pale ale. Pretty good clean finish though.

Poured a nice yellow-orange hue with a medium white head. The aroma was pretty hoppy. The flavor was quite bitter, though not as bitter as some pale ales that I have had. While not the top of my list I might be inclined to revisit this beer at a later date.

The beer has a fruity hop aroma. Flavors of hops, dried fruits and malt. Short aftertaste. It’s refreshing, and I like it.

Appearance: Golden honey color, slightly hazy. Nice fine bubbles. Head looks rocky, leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma: Citrus hops, earthly, sweet malts. Taste & Mouthfeel: Citrus hops up front, mild earthly, along with biscuity malts. Semi sweet orange blossoms in the mid-palate, with touch of honey. Very refreshing, body is light to medium. Carbonation feels great. Finish & Aftertaste: Crisp finish with slight herbal bite aftertaste. Overall Impressions: Outstanding American Pale Ale!!
