12 ounce bottle- pours a cloudy gold with a moderate white head. The entire story of this ale is hops, hops and more hops. They dominate the aroma and the taste. The citrus bite is very IPA. Palate is fairly thin, bet appropriate to the style. Okay.

Pours clear yellow from with a medium bone-white head from a bottle. Nose has caramel and bread with hints of butter. Mouth has some grass with a typical malt body and hops. Medium body with a bitter finish.

This beer has an odd flavor that really presented itself early in the process, it was smooth after the initial taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose combines malt and floral hops. Taste is bracing and sharp, with a distinct hops bias on a more subtle roasted malt base. Assertive for a pale ale. A step below an IPA but in the same general flavor profile. Dry finish. Pretty smooth and refreshing overall.

Tap - Nice golden color wit very small white head. Delicate aroma of honey and grapefruit. Very light in taste with notes of straw and good balanced bitterness. Easy drinkable but I was waiting for something more to come that would be at least a little bit surprising. In the end only one of many APAís and not the best price-quality relationship.

BrewGoblin (446) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
The dank, the dank! Stanky and danky, lemony cereal, caramel, caramel, fruity floral blast-off. This tastes like nothing Iíve had in this style before, big pungent resin and citrus hops blended with sweet caramel malts and some straw. A very pretty do, this would be as sexy as a blonde could get were this brew a woman, and one that smoked el ganja. Bitter be she, like the blondes Iíve left scorned. Punchy lemon hops, smooth caramel-coated corn flakes, poncho dank-o.

R4N5H (121) - SINGAPORE - NOV 9, 2014
355ml bottle purchased at GREAT supermarket in Hong Kong. Pale clear golden colour with a medium head which quickly disappears. Malty floral aroma - honey, caramel and grapefruit. Very bitter malt taste. Medium carbonation and lightly hopped. Dry malty aftertaste. A little too commercial for my taste.

Hidden_Pooch (409) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
I didnít even know what this beer was at first, so unique I thought it was its own style. Pours a hazy amber with a tiny white head. Aroma is very pleasant with hints of pine, toffee, and floral hops. Tastes of honey herbs, pine, and minerals. Has a smooth medium body with lively carbonation and great lacing. A very good take on the style.

Rarely tasted a Pale Ale with such a strong aroma of hops and such bitterness. Very nice!

Pale gold in colour, thick frothy head. Has a hint of caramel on the nose with some citrus and grass notes. Taste is not overwhelming, and is mostly dominated by the toasty malts...but there is enough Cascade in there to make it enjoyable. I can appreciate the history behind this beer (being the first modern single hop ale and the first dry hop ale etc...) but it does have that kind of generic American Pale Ale taste. That isnít necessarily a bad thing!

Itís got a strong chemical metal taste to it, very soapy head like what you get on cheap club beers, bitter but lacking hops flavour, the aroma is mild citrus and metal. I maybe got a bad batch, sun exposed, or maybe different places in the world get different brews because this doesnít resemble any of the good qualities mentioned in other reviews. I lump this in with beers like Heineken and Grolsch, which are supposed to be completely different beers.
